The home energy management market continues to grow. Last week, the ABB ReliaHome Smart Panel – ABB’s first residential energy management software platform — launched commercially in the U.S. and Canada. The ABB ReliaHome Smart Panel comes via collaboration with Lumin, a specialist in responsive load management, and it enables energy optimization, circuit scheduling, and real-time control in one universally compatible package.

Residential energy consumption accounts for approximately 20% of the U.S. total energy use. ABB’s ReliaHome Smart Panel aims to play a crucial role in empowering homeowners to participate in the transition to an electrified, low-carbon future.

“This latest collaboration marks a significant stride in ABB’s focus on the residential sector,” said Adam Mease, NEMA Global Product Group Leader at ABB’s Electrification Smart Buildings Division. “We’re committed to accelerating the energy transition through innovation and the evolution of traditional home electrical distribution, offering homebuilders, homeowners, and communities’ powerful tools to optimize energy usage and save costs.”
