AUSTIN, Texas, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Resideo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: REZI) announced it has acquired innovative energy efficiency technology from Whisker Labs and hired the team behind it. The technology creates a thermodynamic model of a home to accurately predict home heating and air conditioning run time and energy use to enable a homeowner to use less energy while maintaining comfort.

"Whisker Labs has been a great partner for us, and adding this capability is yet another example of our commitment to compelling growth opportunities that strengthen and complement our smart-home offerings through the use of intelligent data," said Mike Nefkens, president and CEO of Resideo.

Navigant Publishes Demand Side Management Overview Report

Navigant Publishes 'Market Data: Demand Response for C&I'

This Navigant Research report provides a high level examination of the global DSM market in five major geographic regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The study provides an analysis of market trends, including the drivers and barriers associated with global DSM development. Global market forecasts for electric DSM capacity, sites, and spending are segmented by region and extend through 2028. The report also examines technology issues and key industry players.

New distributed energy resource technologies and changing customer expectations have created opportunities for growth in the demand side management (DSM) market. Demand response (DR) and energy efficiency programs are an important component in meeting changing regulatory requirements, supporting distributed generation, and delivering new business models and revenue streams. Between 2019 and 2028, Navigant Research expects market growth of DR and energy efficiency programs worldwide; integrated DSM will also generate operational and capital savings for program providers in more mature markets.

Growth in DSM is expected to take place in all regions of the world, with deeper savings in mature markets and new market share in regions with less program penetration. The integration of more intermittent renewables in specific regions is anticipated to look to DSM programs to provide local peak management and load shifting capabilities to the grid. Developments in more efficient, intelligent hardware and program management software are expected to offer streams of data that can be used to optimize both commercial and industrial (C&I) and residential energy ecosystems. Edge computing and data analytics will speed rates of actionable insights for program providers.
