Moving Towards the Integrated Home – Connected, Interactive, Interoperable, AND Efficient


Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

-John F. Kennedy


Tim Carter (Georgia Power) & Shon Richey (Alabama Power) join us today to discuss two very forward-thinking Smart Neighborhood projects that address grid balancing and consumer engagement amongst other objectives.

They reveal how new home programs are looking beyond just asset-based performance of homes by considering many other factors including the time and location-based value of efficiency as well as non-energy benefits that flow from an integrated, connected (two-way communication) home. 

We dive deep into the concepts of the home of the future, as well as the ‘utility of the future’ which will impact the design and methods used in new construction.

You will hear about utility offerings designed to achieve objectives beyond traditional energy efficiency, such as load management and behavior change.
