The Swiss Army knife of future utility programs

The Swiss Army knife of future utility programs

As smart thermostats and connected home technology become more integrated with utility DSM programs, it is important to understand the potential of these devices beyond deemed kWh savings. Besides the setback adjustments from these devices, the smarts in smart thermostats come from the granular data acquisition, the control and optimization algorithms, and the connection to the cloud. This provides the utility with a platform for out-of-the-box program offerings incorporating demand response, virtual home audits, and enhanced customer engagement. The attached white paper outlines more detailed information about the integration of these unique devices.
