Smart Energy Summit addresses consumer value proposition and distribution channels for in-home energy management and control solutions

International research firm Parks Associates today announced the speakers for the Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer. This conference, hosted in cooperation with Austin Energy, takes place January 25-27 at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, Tex.

Smart Energy Summit analyzes the consumer side of the changing energy industry and the impact of Smart Grid technologies and in-home management solutions. Sessions feature over 30 government, utility, and industry executives, offering insight into the current landscape for energy management, barriers to overcome, the mass-market potential, and deployment status of smart infrastructure and energy management devices for in-home use.

The conference also features research from Parks Associates’ Residential Energy Management service, including data on consumer readiness to adopt new technologies and current usage of energy management tools. Parks Associates reports over 80% of U.S. consumers are interested in learning how to cut their energy costs, but less than one-half want to learn more about Smart Grids.

Keynote speakers include Andres Carvallo, CIO, Austin Energy; Dr. George W. Arnold, National Coordinator for Smart Grid Interoperability, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), U.S. Department of Commerce; and Bob Heffron, Utility Market Manager, Verizon.
