Bills are especially higher for larger families and so is their dissatisfaction,” said Chris White, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “There is a great opportunity for utilities to market energy programs such as demand response and for appliance makers to sell energy-saving and energy management devices to families looking for ways to lower bills.”

“We all need to be smarter about our energy use at home, and technology can help us do that. Using systems that determine when someone is home or not (and where they are) and then proactively make basic decisions for us (as Orro does with controlling lighting) give us every opportunity to consume only the energy we need at that particular moment,” said Colin BillingsCEO & Founder, Orro.
“It’s not so much about how much data we have or even how advanced our analytics have become, but about how quickly we can unleash the power of insights and intelligence produced across the entire energy value chain,” he says. Bob Champagne, VP, Customer Experience Innovation, Smart Energy Water. “We are only seeing the ‘tip of the spear’ in terms of the impact energy data and intelligence have on the global energy transition.”
“Smart buildings are the foundation of any energy management plan. I am excited to participate in the Smart Energy Summit and discuss practical steps to create a smart and energy-efficient building,” said Blake MillerFounder & CEO, Homebase.
