Distributed Energy Management

Virtual
Add to calendar

Artificial intelligence and big data applications can continually add more value to smart home and IoT solutions at the application level, often without requiring substantive hardware changes. Additional sensors provide more context for device control, ultimately feeding artificial intelligence applications with data that can provide more predictive and personalized automation. When multi-sensor devices are integrated into and managed by smart home or security services, they create value that can be captured by whole-home energy management services. This session addresses distributed energy management, driven by the need to reduce energy consumption on the grid and leveraging connected device assets to obtain this goal.

Solar Power: Transformation of Home Energy

Virtual
Add to calendar

Including solar and storage in a smart home platform solution allows the platform and homeowner more flexibility regarding whole home energy usage management. Devices like smart plugs and outlets are already giving consumers insights into specific device energy metrics. The inclusion of a solar/storage solution with an overall smart home platform can empower users with real-time data on all the devices in their home. Solar panels can generate power to charge home storage batteries that support critical loads during a blackout. This session addresses the latest trends, opportunities, and challenges in the solar power market and uncovers the potential for transforming homes into sustainable energy hubs.

New tax incentives for battery storage make inclusion of a battery in a solar system an easier sell, and more systems with batteries will push up the revenue per system installed. In the coming years, a tightening economy will create downward pressure on growth for solar solutions. Rising energy costs and concerns about grid stability will be exacerbated by electric vehicle sales and the associated home charging installations. Together, these factors will build a tailwind for energy cost-reduction products and services growth.

This session addresses the changes in the market of solar power, battery technology, and integration of devices and systems with the electrical grid. This session highlights growing consumer and industry demand for home energy management systems and the changes in how we manage and consume energy at home.
