Tendril CEO To Deliver Keynote on Consumer Engagement at Municipal Smart Grid Summit


Tendril, the energy platform company, announced today that CEO Adrian Tuck will be delivering the keynote at the Municipal Smart Grid Summit, which takes place July 25-27 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Fla. The conference will focus on the most promising and powerful technologies available for utilities to enable the Smart Grid.

Tuck's keynote, “Engaging Consumers Beyond the Meter: Rules of the Road,” will outline key lessons learned on what it takes to meaningfully engage consumers in home energy management and keep them engaged. Drawing from Tendril's expertise from the meter to the home, he'll examine what works and what doesn't. He'll explore what sustained consumer engagement can mean for utilities and energy service providers beyond just energy efficiency. He'll also provide a look into the future of consumer engagement technology and what it could mean for the grid and all energy stakeholders.

“Engaging Consumers Beyond the Meter: Rules of the Road,” will be held from 7-8 p.m. EDT on Monday, July 25.

Today's announcement follows on the heels of significant momentum at Tendril the past year, including a strategic partnership with and investment from Siemens; beginning shipments of Tendril Energize to several energy service providers; Origin Energy, the leading Australian integrated energy company's selection of Tendril Energize for its customer base; the opening of an office in Melbourne; an alliance with Whirlpool Corporation, the world's leading appliance manufacturer, to enable the roll-out of smart appliances with Tendril Connect; and the 2010 acquisition of GroundedPower, a pioneer in consumer engagement.
