Parks Associates will present new research at the Smart Energy Summit, including connected appliance data that show U.S. broadband households are increasingly interested in automated energy solutions. Nearly 50% are very interested in a thermostat that can automatically detect an unoccupied house and adjust the temperature to save money; 44% of households would allow utilities to manage and monitor their home appliances in order to reduce their energy consumption.

"Consumer adoption of energy solutions often begins with a single connected product, which companies can leverage to create new value-added services," said Tom Kerber, Director, Research, Home Controls and Energy, Parks Associates. "Our Smart Energy Summit keynotes bring unique perspectives on this market, with strategies to increase consumer awareness and strengthen the value proposition for energy offerings. The Summit keynotes help address the different ways to engage consumers as well as how companies, including utilities, must evolve to meet the changes in this market."
