BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new report from Navigant Research explores the residential energy application (app) market, including its drivers, inhibitors, and regional trends, focusing on the consumer, prosumer, and utility segments. Residential customers are beginning to turn to energy-focused apps offered by utilities and vendors of energy-related hardware and services to increase energy efficiency in their homes and to save money. Through new tools, and with data available at their fingertips, customers can monitor their energy use to reduce consumption, while utilities benefit from more efficient grid operations. Click to tweet: According to a new report from Navigant Research, active users of utilities’ energy apps have experienced average savings of six percent to eight percent. “Customers are using apps via mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, as well as PCs, for more and more of their daily needs,” says Neil Strother, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Energy services companies in the 21st century need to stay in tune with them by providing appropriate apps and developing an adaptable and long-term strategy, helping customers to more efficiently monitor and manage their energy consumption.” Currently, several utilities offer energy apps for customers, including DTE Energy, Direct Energy, and Infinite Energy, and point to generally positive customer experiences and possible energy savings of approximately eight percent. The market for energy apps is still in its early stage, according to the report, but is expected to grow as more utilities and energy service companies become more technologically savvy. The report, Energy Apps for Residential Customers, examines the residential energy app market, with a focus on three segments: consumer apps, prosumer apps, and utility apps. The study analyzes the drivers, inhibitors, and regional trends related to energy apps and highlights several case studies where these apps are being used today. Some of the key players in the residential energy app market are profiled, and various business models and best practices for designing and deploying winning energy apps are discussed.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Energy consumption management programs are in high demand according to a study by Cogent Reports™, a division of Market Strategies International. Capturing this demand, however, is proving to be challenging for most of the nation’s utilities. The few utilities that have achieved high levels of awareness and usage are not only meeting customer needs, they are benefitting from associated lifts in customer satisfaction trust. These and other findings are included in The New Energy Consumption Management Market™ report. When asked about their level of interest across eight consumption management programs, the majority of utility customers (83% on average) express interest in at least one program. Interest is highest for appliance rebates (61%) and time-of-use incentives (59%) and about 1 in 2 customers expressing interest in digital tools. Very few utilities, meanwhile, have managed to capture this demand. With the exception of mail-based energy usage analysis, which itself struggles to reach 20%, most programs are currently utilized by less than 10% of consumers nationwide. Low usage levels can be tied to the fact that most consumers have heard of only one type of program, and one in three (37%) are unaware of any programs offered by their local utility. “While clearly the goal should be to increase program usage, merely increasing interest provides significant benefits to utilities,” said Chris Oberle, senior vice president at Market Strategies International. “Utilities that successfully educate customers about the features and benefits of consumption management programs get a boost in customer satisfaction and trust levels.” Further hampering utilities’ ability to maximize adoption of consumption management programs is the fact that most customers lack a sense of urgency. While upwards of 50% of customers are interested in programs once made aware, very few say they are likely to adopt programs in the next six months. “We have found that utilities that approach energy consumption management programs with traditional product management discipline have the greatest immediate demand and product usage experience for these programs,” Oberle continued. “This includes planning, budgeting and managing a targeted marketing effort like any retail company would.” The study not only explores awareness and usage of—as well as interest in—consumption management programs, but further assesses customers’ perceptions of their local utility on its efforts to educate, motivate and deliver on programs. A small number of utilities in each region of the country have managed to achieve high awareness and usage levels as well as accolades from their customers on three of the eleven metrics, including clearly explaining the programs they offer, having programs that are easy to enroll in, and making information on programs easily accessible. About The New Energy Consumption Management Market Cogent Reports, a division of Market Strategies, interviewed a national sample of 25,812 consumers aged 20+ between January 1 and June 30, 2015. Respondents were recruited from opt-in online panels of US. Strict quotas based on US census data were used to ensure a demographically balanced sample of each evaluated utility’s customers based on age, gender, income, race and ethnicity. Utilities within the same region and of the same type (e.g., electric-only providers) are given equal weight to balance the influence of each utility’s customers on survey results. Due to its opt-in nature, this online panel (like most others) does not yield a random probability sample of the target population. As such, it is not possible to compute a margin of error or to statistically quantify the accuracy of projections. Market Strategies will supply the exact wording of all survey questions upon request. The report is designed to help utilities understand and improve adoption of energy consumption and smart energy technology among residential customers. The report explores awareness and usage of—as well as interest in—a variety of programs nationally, by region and across individual utilities. Most importantly, the report quantifies the impact consumption management programs have on four critical metrics, including customer engagement, operational satisfaction, product experience and brand trust. Topics and programs covered include Smart Meters, energy efficiency rebates, energy audits, rooftop solar incentives, energy tools, home network devices, and communication to manage energy use.
