Interest in how to better manage energy use in the home continues to rise among homeowners, builders, vendors, utilities, and other stakeholders, but no one seems to have cracked the code on a wide scale. Much of the technology already exists, including smart meters, smart thermostats, smart appliances, and networks and software to help run it all. Prices have fallen for some services and components, and that has stimulated somewhat greater interest for the mainstream consumer. Yet the market remains stalled. Standards issues, low consumer awareness, and questions about homeowners’ potential ROI remain barriers to widespread adoption. The ROI for many homeowners is still unclear, and full home energy management (HEM) systems have been largely relegated to high-end homes.
Featuring senior analyst Neil Strother along with Kent Dickson, the CTO of energy management platform leader Tendril, this webinar examines the drivers and inhibitors in the HEM market, provides case studies of what has (and hasn’t) worked to date, and explores possible scenarios as the market unfolds through 2020.
