ROYAL OAK, Mich., July 29, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) has named Powerley winner of the 2019 SEPA Power Players Change Agent of the Year award. This is in recognition of Powerley's work as a "catalyst in transforming the energy industry." Powerley's smart home energy management platform embodies the Change Agent award, proving the potential for utilities to drive deeper engagement today, while paving the path for long-term business model transformation.
As the leader in smart home energy management, Powerley has not only created a new category of energy innovation, but also proven the commercial viability of smart home energy management. Partnering with utilities such as DTE Energy, AEP Ohio, and BC Hydro, Powerley has tallied over 60 million interactions across nearly 250,000 households since its inception. This has created a channel where customers engage an average of 17 times per month. These business impacts are powered by real-time energy data, collected every three seconds – 1200X more data than average AMI interval data generated in a single day.
"Powerley has made great progress in commercializing smart home energy management," said SEPA's President and CEO, Julia Hamm. "Through Powerley, utilities are unlocking the potential of energy data, driving greater energy efficiency and higher customer satisfaction and engagement, all while creating new revenue streams."
Powerley and winners in six other categories will be celebrated at an awards gala, Monday, July 29, co-located with SEPA's Grid Evolution Summit in Washington, D.C.
