EPA’s ENERGY STAR Program Advances Energy Management through Smart Homes

Wednesday, January 4, 2023

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the first mass-market Smart Home Energy Management System (SHEMS) to earn ENERGY STAR certification. With smart home products gaining in popularity across the country, this certification gives homeowners and renters nationwide the ability to choose systems that help them simplify the management of networked products to save energy, save money and protect the climate.

“In today’s world just about everything is connected, including many of the household products we use each and every day,” said U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael S. Regan. “With smart systems that earn the ENERGY STAR, American households will be able to track and automate everything from their lighting to their thermostat use to optimize for energy savings that lead to financial savings and a reduced carbon footprint.”
