Encino, CA (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
Michel Kohanim, the president of Universal Devices, Inc., a leading manufacturer of affordable, autonomous, Internet-accessible, automation and energy management products and solutions, has been invited to present at the upcoming Emerging Technology Summit 2012, which will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center Ballroom from October 15-17, 2012.
Mr. Kohanim, who will join the panel for the “Demand Response for the Masses” session on Tuesday, October 16 from 10:30-11:30am PT, will outline the characteristics of an energy management system that addresses the need for effective communication between Smart Grids and in-premise devices, and the importance of empowering customers and respecting their bottom-line.
“A Smart Grid will not be very smart if the grid cannot effectively communicate goals and expectations to in-premise devices,” commented Mr. Kohanim. “In addition, consumers will not be very happy with a totalitarian grid that forces them into certain actions contrary to their level of comfort, as well as budgetary considerations. All of these criteria have been met and integrated into our 994i Z and 994i ZS series energy management and automation systems, respectively.”
Summit attendees who wish to schedule a meeting with Mr. Kohanim during the event, or who wish to receive a complimentary copy of his presentation, can email business_relations (at) universal-devices (dot) com or call 818-631-0333.
“It’s my privilege to be part of the Demand Response for the Masses panel,” added Mr. Kohanim. “With the current segmented manner in which demand-response and grid-to-premise communications are implemented, I fully support the ET Summit’s vision in starting this very important discussion.”
