Smart Home Systems and Products are Outpacing Utility Pilot Programs

by Tom Kerber | Jan. 9, 2015

The wave of smart products and smart home systems entering homes combined with the rapid introduction of software-based value-added services is out of sync with the slow and arduous utility pilot process. 2015 will bring innovation into the residential measurement and verification process. Data analytics based systems will provide tools such as disaggregation and weather normalization that can quantify savings for energy efficient products and services. Utilities need a measurement and verification solution that accelerates or eliminates the pilot process. Smart home solution providers also benefit from a detailed understanding and quantification of savings. 2015 will be the year when M&V solutions are created to accelerate residential energy efficiency program development and rollout, and will mark the beginning of the end of utility pilots as we know them today.
