Product valued for its enterprise-level, widely applicable approach to energy management
Arlington, VA, December 3, 2015—GridPoint, an innovator in data-driven energy management systems (EMS), today announced that it has received a Top Product of the Year Award in the Energy Manager Today Awards.
The Energy Manager Today Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with significant energy management benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved energy management and increased the bottom line.
Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges from the following companies: Accenture, CapitalOne, City of Alexandria VA, COX Enterprises Inc., General Motors, MUFG Union Bank, IBM, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, US Department of Health & Human Services, USG Corporation, and Wellborn Cabinet Inc.
In this quickly changing industry, energy professionals are often tasked with evaluating products with little knowledge as to what is working for others. The Energy Manager Today Awards recommend a solid base of products, vetted by experts, to illustrate how successful initiatives in energy management are helping companies improve. GridPoint, recognized as widely applicable through its multi-site approach, was praised for offering “excellent application of large amounts of data to reduce costs and meet sustainability, GHG reduction goals.”
“We were impressed by both the number of submissions and the caliber of the entries in this first year of the Energy Manager Today Awards. The winners showed an amazing variety in the way energy reductions and savings can be achieved. Energy management is a cutting-edge field in which to be operating today; the winners here prove that innovations are opening up vast new areas of potential for improvement and that companies are capitalizing on those opportunities in exciting and impressive ways,” says Paul Nastu, publisher of Energy Manager Today’s parent company, Business Sector Media. “Entries that were awarded Top Product or Project of the Year are those that should be carefully considered by companies seeking to improve their own operations in a similar manner.”
“We are thrilled to be named as a top product of the year recipient by Energy Manager Today,” said Mark Danzenbaker, President at GridPoint. “Our unique approach not only optimizes energy spend, but also drives operational efficiency and justifies capital planning decisions making investing in energy management a financial, and sustainable, strategic decision. We are proud that these qualities were acknowledged by the judges and believe that this award is further recognition that GridPoint’s EMS is superior to others in the marketplace.”
