A key characteristic of smart grid is two-way communication between the utility and its customers. In the new Smart Grid Application Guide, OpenADR, BACnet and VOLTTRON are introduced as key parts of this two-way communication. OpenADR is an open, secure and two-way information exchange model and global Smart Grid standard. BACnet has objects and services that enable building load management and control. VOLTTRON is an open-source and secure execution and communications platform that  an be used for buildings-to-grid applications. The two-way communication
architecture and basic concepts of OpenADR, BACnet and VOLTTRON will be presented in this session.
