Parks Associates on February 25-27, San Antonio, addresses the growing market
for new energy management services and technologies and opportunities for new
partnerships between utilities, service providers, retailers, and OEMs.
"The average household spends $118 dollars per month for electricity, and
consumers expect a quick return on investment in energy-saving products, "

will not pay more than their average total energy bill for products offering a
20% savings, roughly $175. Honeywell and Lowe's are both taking important
steps to overcome these challenges and expand the market for energy solutions.
We are looking forward to their keynotes at Smart Energy Summit."
