This paper provides a summary of the control and communications systems evaluated and reported on as part of a larger research report (Piette et al, 2004). The objective of the study was to evaluate the technological performance of Automated Demand Response hardware and software systems in large facilities. The concept in the evaluation was to conduct a test using a fictitious electricity price to trigger a demand-response event over the Internet. Two related papers describe the measurement of the electric demand shedding and the decision making issues with the site energy managers (Motegi et al, 2004 and Shockman, 2004).
