DALLAS, Jan. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Parks Associates today announced the agenda for the 13th annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, to be held February 28-March 2 in person at the Omni Hotel in Frisco, TX. The company announced new research based on a Q4 2021 survey of more than 10,000 U.S. broadband households, which shows smart light bulb adoption has reached 14% of U.S. broadband households. Purchase intent for all smart energy, light and water devices has increased over 2020, including 32% of U.S. broadband households planning to purchase a smart bulb in the past 12 coming months.
Smart Energy Summit, a three-day conference sponsored by Rapid Response, Zen Ecosystems and Particle.io, focuses on strategies to better communicate the benefits of connected products and energy programs that help consumers save money and actively participate in reducing energy consumption in their homes.
“Energy management is a key part of the connected home, and utilities are a key delivery point: 23% of U.S. broadband households that purchased a smart home device in the past 12 months made purchase due to an incentive, rebate or rebate from their energy supplier,” said Elizabeth Parks, President and Chief Marketing Officer, Parks Associates. “With consumers looking for more comfort and control in the home, thermostats, lighting and even smart appliances provide an important foundation for improving the consumer experience in the smart home.”
