Parks Associates today announced keynote speakers from Austin Energy, CPS Energy, EnergyHub, and GAF Energy for its 14th annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, being held February 13-15 at the Omni Hotel in Austin, Texas. The research firm recently released new research from its consumer survey work of 10,000 internet households showing 54% of internet households say their energy costs are too high, 44% are actively working to reduce energy at home, and 16% would like to use less energy but don’t know how.

The executive research and strategy conference features energy leaders focused on the growth of energy management. Topics and insights focus on the transformation of the utility business model, the impact of connected devices on distributed energy resource management, and effective incentives to help save and reduce energy. Event sponsors include the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), Rapid Response Monitoring, Copper Labs, Schneider Electric, and Questline Digital.

“As traditional sources of power become rarer and more costly, demand for renewable energy solutions will grow,” said Chris White, Smart Home Research Director, Parks Associates. “Consumers respond to economic incentives the most, and as traditional electrification continues to become more costly, many households will become more open to adopting renewable alternatives like solar and home storage.”
