“Customers are using apps via mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, as well as PCs, for more and more of their daily needs. Energy services companies in the 21st century need to stay in tune with them by providing appropriate apps and developing an adaptable and long-term strategy, helping customers to more efficiently monitor and manage their energy consumption.”
 
Several utilities offering energy apps to the clients at present include:
“DTE Energy, Direct Energy, and Infinite Energy”
 
The abovementioned apps, according to BusinessWire, have generated positive “customer experience” so far. However, the said market is yet to mature claims the report, although is expected to grow” as the energy service sector and utility companies turn more “technologically savvy”.
 
According to BusinessWire:

The study analyzes the drivers, inhibitors, and regional trends related to energy apps and highlights several case studies where these apps are being used today.
