Chicago, IL   Feb. 12, 2014: “You typically won’t find an energy panel with this high caliber of speakers gathered outside of Washington, Silicon Valley, or a national television studio,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Connected World magazine, commenting on the guests assembled for the exclusive presentation: Creating Sustainability at Home. This exclusive presentation will be held Thursday, February 13, 11:00 a.m. CT, in the Connected World Conference Pavilion, South Hall, Chicago Auto Show.

The panel will be moderated by Smedley and features Mike McMahan, vice president, Smart Grid and Technology, ComED; Ed Carroll Vice President, Program Design and Development, Franklin Energy; Paul Steffes CEO, Steffes Corp.; and Robert McKeeman, CEO, Utility.

  • Current state of energy efficiency
  • How smart is the smart grid?
  • Best practices for future technology development
  • What consumers can expect five to 10 years from now
  • Should consumers be concerned with privacy issues?
