In the Demand Response (DR) concepts, we witness several barriers that need to be addressed such as, data transferring from promoting entities to demand side. The Open Automated Demand Response (Open ADR) standard specification is a solution for overcoming these barriers. This PhD work proposes a real business model for DR implementation based on Open ADR technology.
