2021 Integrated Home Competition Winners Announced

Dec 1, 2021


The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) has awarded high-quality and innovative designs that exemplify the four tenets of the CEE Integrated Home: energy savings, demand flexibility, consumer amenity, and security.

In 2021, the Integrated Home Competition evaluated 39 entries in residential connected lighting, lighting controls, ceiling fans, plug load controls, space heating and cooling (HVAC), thermostats, water heaters, pool pumps, window attachments, and other connected home devices that successfully deliver a positive consumer experience, energy management, and grid benefit.

The Judging Panel included individuals with expertise in usability, interoperability, integrated demand-side management (IDSM) program administration, product installation, specific technology performance, sales, and design. Entries were demonstrated remotely or installed in-person at the UL Lighting Test Laboratory. The Judges carefully considered the detailed product submission information and observed the entries’ operation and user interfaces. Winners were selected for their ability to elegantly embody the tenets of the CEE Integrated Home.

The CEE Integrated Home is a connected, fuel neutral, interactive, and efficient home where devices and systems effectively communicate to provide new customer, utility system, and societal value. The Integrated Home Competition supports this vision through public promotion of commercially available solutions that are simple, reliable, well-designed, and highly functional. Its goal is to provide a platform for distinguishing innovation in service to Integrated Demand Side Management Objectives, including traditional energy savings.

The Competition is organized by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), the American Lighting Association (ALA), the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), and UL; it is sponsored by RESNET and over thirty energy efficiency utilities, trade associations, and research entities across the United States and Canada.
