Smart, Clean, Connected: The Future of Home Energy Management
Published: April 7, 2021 Content info: 80 Slides
Description

SYNOPSIS:

The smart home provides connectivity that allows consumers and energy service providers to understand and manage energy consumption throughout the home. As adoption of solar, storage, and electric vehicles grows alongside the smart home, utilities have the opportunity to align operation of these devices to the needs of the grid. This research provides insights on consumer interest in clean energy management products and services, including features, price sensitivity, and incentives for energy-efficiency solutions.

ANALYST INSIGHT:

"COVID-19, along with a growing focus on green energy solutions, has added new drivers to adoption of energy management products at home, as well as new interest in solar, electric-vehicle, and other solutions that will help households save energy and become more self-sufficient." - Patrice Samuels , Senior Analyst, Parks Associates.
