EnergyHub leadership takes center stage at Smart Energy Summit

Grant Engle
Grant is the marketing manager at EnergyHub.

Smart Energy Summit, hosted by Parks Associates, is one of our favorite conferences of the year. The conference focuses on “the intersection of the utility and consumer technology markets,” which makes it a perfect conference for our team to share our expertise as a leading distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) provider.

The rampant growth of distributed energy resources (DERs) is a hot topic among utilities and connected home vendors and will be a major focus at this year’s conference. That is why the conference organizers invited two EnergyHub experts to appear on panels during the conference.

Managing the Grid with Distributed Energy Resources

After Wednesday’s networking lunch, Smart Energy Summit attendees will gather for an in-depth talk on how the proliferation of DERs is changing the way utilities manage the grid. This panel promises to offer great insight, as it features EnergyHub’s VP of Business Development, Matt Johnson, and executives from two of the most innovative utilities in the country: Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).

Full description of the panel and panelists:

Adoption of distributed energy resources, smart home solutions, and energy monitoring services will allow energy providers to predict the load shape for households, communities, and cities with greater precision and create energy plans that closely match local needs. This session looks at the future of energy planning and grid management as more consumers adopt solutions that can coordinate multiple individual devices and shape a household’s load profile.
