This white paper from the global consulting company ICF, describes the potential of smart thermostats. According to the authors, smart thermostats can save at least 8 - 10% in heating and cooling energy. Moreover, they provide a versatile out-of-the box platform for demand response, revenue generation, grid optimisation and customer engagement.
