The landscape of demand-side energy management is rapidly transforming. The rise of internet-connected smart appliances, advanced metering, dynamic utility tariffs, and distributed renewable and storage assets is creating new opportunities for customers and utilities to capture value from demand flexibility. Data-driven applications and emerging technologies like blockchain will provide homes and buildings with novel ways to reduce their carbon footprint and monetize their ability to shift energy usage.
This webinar will offer cutting-edge ideas and suggestions for developers, builders, architects, utilities, and cities to deploy advanced technologies and renewables, create optimized demand-side energy strategies, and develop structures that offer a higher value proposition to buyers and owners.
