Accelerating Behavioral Change Beyond the Home Energy Report

Now, with evolving technologies and new program expectations for success, you have to leverage the power of behavior change to ensure customers adopt, engage and take action in new and potentially challenging ways. During this session, we will share why Behavioral Energy Efficiency is about more than just delivering the Home Energy Report and how the SaaS platform powering your behavioral program can flex to quickly meet specific needs for peak reduction, program enrollment, electrification, and rate adoption. We’ll discuss our introduction of dynamic communications that flex to quickly meet specific needs.

A customer-centric approach to making energy affordable for the most vulnerable customers

Rising costs for everyday resources put millions of limited-income customers at a disadvantage and adds to the energy burden they already face. In this session, we will talk about why it benefits utilities to reach their most vulnerable customers and the need for funding collaboration, shared tools, and a better customer experience. We'll dive into how utilities can help ease the energy burden through a unique process of identifying, reaching and increasing customer enrollment in meaningful programs that help reduce arrearages and reach customers at scale more economically.

Lunch

Utilities’ business customers are expecting seamless experiences with clear data and insights at their fingertips. Opower is helping utilities take a step forward with a new Business Customer Engagement solution with a flexible suite of cross-channel experiences designed for business customers and utility account managers. Using personalized self-service tools and outbound messaging and alerts, Opower helps to enhance customer satisfaction, reduce cost-to serve, and make account managers more effective.
