ENERGY STAR, a joint program between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy, has named Emerson a 2020 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for its Sensi smart thermostat suite. Emerson noted Sensi is the first smart thermostat brand to receive this honor.
The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award honors organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements.
Emerson said studies show the Sensi Smart Thermostat and Sensi Touch Smart Thermostat can help save users about 23% of HVAC energy consumption by adjusting the temperature using flexible scheduling, remote access and geofencing.
Emerson partners with utilities across the U.S. to deliver energy efficiency programs and rebates for customers using Sensi thermostats. In addition, Emerson assists these utilities with demand-response programs through its Sensi smart thermostats, helping to reduce energy load on power plants during peak usage times to minimize impact on the grid.
“Receiving the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award affirms our commitment to offer top-quality, smart thermostat solutions that make life better for our customers and for the planet,” said Craig Rossman, President of White-Rodgers for Emerson.
“Heating and cooling are major drivers in a home’s energy usage and costs. With our ENERGY STAR-certified Sensi smart thermostats, Emerson is positioned to help customers achieve energy efficiency and save money, while maintaining indoor comfort.”
