GE Appliances & Lighting plans to be the first major appliance company to provide a whole-home solution for energy management by going beyond the kitchen to provide insight into energy usage in the family room, the basement, the home office and all other rooms of the house. From the GeoSpring™ Hybrid Hot Water Heater, Nucleus™ energy manager , and programmable thermostats, to GE Profile™ Appliances enabled with Brillion™ technology and GE smart meters, GE is developing solutions to help consumers better manage and control their energy use and costs.
Dave McCalpin was recently appointed General Manager of GE’s Home Energy Management (HEM) business. The new business will develop and commercialize GE’s full line of energy-management solutions that empower consumers to make smarter, more informed energy choices. As utilities roll out smart grid technologies in response to the critical energy challenges we face as a nation, there’s never been a better time for GE to launch this business.
