Fourth-annual Smart Energy Summit To Focus On Consumer Engagement And Market Strategies For Energy-saving Solutions

DALLAS, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Parks Associates today announced the topics and Advisory Board members for the fourth-annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, in San Antonio, Texas, February 25-27, 2013. New research from Parks Associates finds interest in energy-saving devices overall has declined slightly but younger consumers are starting to show more interest in these devices. Over 90% of U.S. broadband consumers 18-34 would pay for a smart thermostat or smart water controls if the solution saves 20% on energy consumption.
