Direct Energy has unveiled an energy management dashboard for consumers and service providers with the focus on reducing energy consumption and costs. The solution, developed in partnership with Exceptional Innovation, is showcased as part of the Connected Suburban Home within the Broadband Nation Exhibit and runs as an application on the tru2way common platform.

The home energy-management dashboard includes easy-to-understand graphics that display real-time use, cost, and ecological impact, along with selected appliance usage, current and projected utility bill costs, comparison charts, management tools, energy savings data, and tips for consumers. The energy management dashboard data and services will ultimately be provided to consumers via remote access from any broadband-enabled and connected device such as smart phones or PCs.

The dashboard was created using technology from Exceptional Innovation, which takes advantage of Web services and cloud-based SOA applications to allow service providers to connect the homeowner to the utility company and to other devices on the network through the TV set.

The set-top being used to demonstrate the applications is the ADB-6880CDX.
