The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shared the Final Draft of the Version 1.0 Specification for ENERGY STAR Smart Home Energy Management Systems (SHEMS). The intent of this program is to recognize smart home system packages that save energy while delivering both cost savings and convenience.

The EPA expects to finalize the SHEMS Version 1.0 Specification by the end of August 2019.
