Parks Associates announces NIST and Grid Net keynotes for Smart Energy Summit in January

Conference will provide consumer research and new business models for residential energy management (REM) solutions

Parks Associates today announced the agenda and confirmed keynotes for the Smart Energy Summit, the premier executive conference focused on new energy management solutions, opportunities for multiple industries, and consumer demand.

The agenda for Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, January 24-26, 2011, in Austin, Texas, features presentations and in-depth discussion with experts in energy management and related industries. Sessions provide attendees with the knowledge and insight, research data, and perspective necessary to succeed in this space. The 2010 event hosted over 225 executives, including CEOs and vice presidents from major U.S. and international energy players.

“As we enter the early stages of REM market development, the industry will naturally target certain consumers, namely the environmentally conscious,” said Bill Ablondi, director, home systems research, Parks Associates. “However, our research shows other segments are also receptive to these new products and programs, including consumers with monitored security, consumers with HVAC maintenance contracts, and smartphone owners. Without understanding consumer interest and attitudes, companies could miss big opportunities to grow early market share.”

Keynote Speakers:

  • George W. Arnold, Eng.Sc.D., National Coordinator for Smart Grid Interoperability, National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Andres Carvallo, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer, Grid Net
