Cortexo Certified OpenADR® Products

OpenADR® provides a framework for the interoperable and standardised communication of demand management signals. It defines the messages, data models, and communication protocols to facilitate the automatic response to electricity grid needs. The OpenADR® Alliance, a nonprofit consortium of stakeholders, oversees the development, adoption, and compliance of the OpenADR® standard to ensure its effectiveness and broad acceptance in the market.

OpenADR® products must be certified to guarantee interoperability by completing a testing process against conformance rules in the OpenADR® standard. Testing is carried out worldwide by approved test houses. Cortexo’s OpenADR® products completed testing at a certified test house in the USA in early 2024.

FlexSplice Hub is provided as a secure cloud service with a GUI access tool, an event database and a reporting database and full API access. Although any demand management program can be created via the API and GUI, the GUI comes preconfigured with the seven programs designed by New Zealand EDBs and trialled in the Flextalk project.
