“Smart Home Energy Solutions: Making a Complex Future Simple,” co-hosted by Schneider Electric and Parks Associates, is now available on demand.
Most people (54 percent) think their electric bills are too high, and only 12 percent of broadband households are not taking any energy-saving actions.
A series of events in recent years has impacted the production, distribution, and consumption of energy. Natural disasters have damaged electrical grids and raised awareness of grid resilience as an issue. The Covid-19 pandemic and war in Eastern Europe have created extreme volatility in the oil and gas markets, which is driving demand for action and alternatives. Smart home devices including thermostats, HVAC, and appliances are collecting larger amounts of consumption data to support a population that is working from home more than ever. The impending acceleration of adoption of electric vehicles and home-charging equipment will substantially increase energy demand before or after commutes.
All these factors are accelerating changes in the energy markets, with multiple sources now serving energy to the home and services such as on-demand pricing becoming more common, creating a much more complex environment for consumers.
Energy product manufacturers, builders, and utilities have an opportunity and a challenge to help consumers handle these issues, coordinate their energy usage and sources, and prepare for a future where households are faced with an increasingly complex energy consumption environment.
In this webinar, speakers identify the tools and assess solutions available to U.S. consumers going forward, including home energy management, solar, and macro-level trends impacting the electrification of the home.
