EnergyHub to launch pilot projects


New York, NY, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — April 15, 2009 – Home energy management solutions provider, EnergyHub, plans to use its recent round of venture funding to support continued product development and to implement pilot programs with utilities across the United States.

EnergyHub’s suite of products empowers home owners to be energy efficient and strengthens the relationship between energy providers and consumers. Including a touchscreen dashboard and temperature control unit with ZigBee communication as well as sockets and strips, EnergyHub integrates in-home devices, stand-alone displays, and web-based software to give consumers real time information and control over their energy usage. With EnergyHub, home owners can put their house to sleep – setting back the thermostat and switching off unused electronic devices – with the touch of a button. They can access data and control their home from the internet or a mobile device.

“EnergyHub’s end-to-end solution is the smartest, simplest, and most cost effective option for both home owners and utilities,” says EnergyHub CEO Seth Frader-Thompson.

The venture funding was provided by .406 Ventures and Physic Ventures.

EnergyHub, which positions itself as the consumer face of the smart grid, has also been awarded a $156,000 grant by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) as a part of its funding initiative for advanced sensors and controls for building and industrial applications.
