Energy and the Internet of Things
Limited Capacity seats available

The connected home is no longer science fiction, with everything from solar panels, electric cars, and smart thermostats beginning to talk to each other about how to best use the energy in your house. This shift has the potential to profoundly impact our own personal power choices, allowing people to decide more about not only where their energy comes from but how it gets used, down to details like when the dishwasher turns on and programming your AC from remote locations. Hear from executives at Simple Energy, Nest, and Tendril discussing how their companies are addressing the challenges of the evolving energy ecosystem, with strategies that include both working with utilities and innovating at the edges of the grid.
