January 19, 2017 - IoT research leader Parks Associates announced new smart energy research today showing that 36% of U.S. broadband households find a system that manages or monitors their home energy usage very appealing. 360 View: Energy Management, Smart Home, and Utility Programs shows 31% of U.S. broadband households find an energy management system very appealing and 30% find an energy monitoring system very appealing. Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, February 20-22 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas, will examine ways energy providers and energy management companies can capitalize on interest in these solutions to create new revenue opportunities.

"Consumer interest in energy systems lags behind actual adoption, and consumer awareness of utility-based energy programs has not increased substantially over many years," said Tom Kerber, Director, IoT Strategy, Parks Associates. "The smart home creates new opportunities for cross marketing and promotion that have the potential to radically change awareness and participation in energy programs. At Smart Energy Summit, we will explore cross marketing and cross selling of energy solutions and the opportunity for bundled energy services with smart home solution providers."

360 View: Energy Management, Smart Home, and Utility Programs also notes 37% of U.S. broadband households find a security monitoring system very appealing and 35% find a safety monitoring system very appealing. Parks Associates analysts and other industry leaders will discuss strategies to blend smart home and energy services during multiple sessions at Smart Energy Summit.
