EnergyHub’s Bring Your Own Thermostat® (BYOT) demand response program with AVANGRID operating companies New York State Electric and Gas Company (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas & Electric (RG&E) has received a 2018 Grid Edge Innovation Award from Greentech Media.

GEI-Summit-Award-Winner-Badge-500x500Greentech Media recognized the program as one of the first in the country to enable customers to purchase a connected thermostat from a utility-branded marketplace and instantly apply both an energy efficiency rebate and a BYOT demand response incentive at the time of purchase. The streamlined device purchase and enrollment experience was made possible by EnergyHub’s integration with Simple Energy, the leading provider of utility-branded marketplaces and omni-channel instant rebates.

Offering two rebates at once prompted a significant increase in connected thermostat sales on the utilities’ marketplaces, and 68 percent of customers who bought a thermostat enrolled in the demand response program.

EnergyHub announced the completion of the program’s successful first season in December of 2017. In addition to providing a software platform, EnergyHub provides NYSEG and RG&E with turnkey services that include program management, marketing and recruiting, customer enrollment, installation services, and customer support.

This is the second-consecutive year EnergyHub has won a Grid Edge Innovation Award, with our Firm Load Dispatch technology receiving recognition last year. Utilities use Firm Load Dispatch to achieve a stable target load curve by coordinating the duty cycles of a population of devices through advanced machine learning, thermal modeling, and real-time device communication.

Greentech Media will present EnergyHub and other recipients with the Grid Edge Innovation Award at the upcoming Grid Edge Innovation Summit, June 20-21, in San Francisco.
