Parks Associates: 48% of US Internet Households Prefer to Get Energy Monitoring Services From an Electricity Provider

Smart Energy Summit features executives from Resideo, Johnson Controls, Copper Labs, Google, and more on the role of data and analytics and their impact on the consumer experience in energy services

DALLAS, Feb. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — New research from Parks Associates shows electricity providers are by far the preferred company to deliver energy monitoring services. Among all US internet households, 48% would prefer to have this type of company provide energy monitoring services, while no other option scored above 8%. Parks Associates will host Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer on February 13-15 at the Omni Austin Downtown Hotel in Austin, TX. The executive conference will feature keynote speakers from Austin Energy, CPS Energy, Electrify America, EnergyHub, GAF Energy, and Generac Grid Services. 

Smart Energy Summit, sponsored by CSA – Connectivity Standards Alliance, Rapid Response Monitoring, Schneider Electric, Austin Energy, Questline Digital, Copper Labs, Resideo, and Google, focuses on the impact of direct consumer participation in energy markets and strategies to increase consumer engagement in energy management solutions.

“Consumers are thinking about energy management and efficiency these days,” said Chris White, Director, Research, Parks Associates. “Nearly two-thirds of households report their electricity costs are too high. Solutions are available, but education is still required as familiarity remains low for potentially helpful energy devices and rate programs.”

  • Aaron Berndt, Head of Energy Industry Partnerships / Americas, Google
