One judge praised GridPoint’s solution for “[illustrating] the power of applying next-generation technology innovations such as IoT, smart sensors, big data analytics, and cloud-based software in a connected fashion to take a data-driven approach to solving sustainability problems at enterprise and global levels.”

The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.

Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges headed by Peter Bussey of LNS Research and also including judges from Ball Aerospace & Technology, BSI Group, C&A, ConAgra Foods, Denver International Airport, ERM, Fetzer Vineyards, General Motors, LNS Research, MUFG Union Bank, Sears Holding Corporation, Staples, the University of California Berkeley, University of Colorado, US Department of Energy, and USG Corporation.

With rapid advancements and a continuous rate of change in the field, sustainability and energy professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy, environmental, and sustainability performance. The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards give companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose, as well as a variety of successful projects to illustrate how sustainability and energy management is helping companies improve.

“Each year since the inception of the Environmental Leader Product and Project Awards program, the range and quality of the entries has risen. With the bar set high, the pool of 2016 entrants did not disappoint,” said Peter Bussey, research analyst with LNS Research and judging coordinator for the Product & Project Awards. “The community of providers continues to address the rising demand for cost-effective solutions to address complex environmental, sustainability, and energy management challenges. And end-user organizations are becoming more creative in applying the available solutions to get real results.”

“We are so proud to have earned a Top Product of the Year award from Environmental Leader,” says GridPoint’s President, Mark Danzenbaker. “We greatly appreciate the recognition of our unique approach to energy management and believe that this award further validates GridPoint’s superior position in the marketplace.”
