Lights on and Connected: CEE White Paper Illustrates the Need to Identify Household Products that Save Energy, Perform Reliably, and are Simple to Use
Middleton, MA November 14, 2019 – The Consortium for Energy Efficiency today released a white paper titled “Connected Lighting & the Integrated Home”, a report on the state of the connected lighting industry and likely interplay with homes that are efficient, connected, and capable of load management.
This report was developed by convening experts in lighting, connected home, energy efficiency, and demand-side management to explore potential value streams of connected lighting and future strategies for increasing consumer adoption of systems that will yield customer and grid benefits. In June 2018, the Lighting for Tomorrow Workshop brought industry leaders together to consider new product capabilities and brainstorm tactics to address market opportunities and barriers. With the goals of fortifying the energy infrastructure and delivering a new level of benefit to consumers, the interactive workshop developed a consensus view that led to the newly expanded Lighting & Homes for Tomorrow competition.
