GridPoint earns prestigious industry recognition for its flexible technology platform that makes significant advances in decarbonization and creates a network of grid-interactive commercial buildings


GridPoint, a leader in building energy management and optimization technology that decarbonizes commercial buildings and drives grid modernization, announced today that it received the IoT Platforms Leadership Award from IoT Evolution Magazine, the leading publication covering the Internet of Things (IoT) technology industry. The award program honors companies contributing to the advancement of the smart home and building industry by delivering software or hardware solutions.


“It is an honor to have our efforts towards building decarbonization recognized by IoT Evolution Magazine,” said Mark Danzenbaker, CEO of GridPoint. “Here at GridPoint, we are passionate about providing our customers the ability to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint by decarbonizing commercial buildings to create a more sustainable future.”


GridPoint’s data-driven platform connects energy grids with the built environment and behind-the-meter distributed energy resources, enabling the ability to optimize energy and sustainability goals for businesses and the grid at the same time. The GridPoint platform captures critical data including granular equipment level data, building performance, historical data, and utility grid status to create the most robust and accurate data set in the industry. Patented control algorithms then leverage this data and communicate with equipment in the building to orchestrate assets in an automated way and drive continuous efficiency. This includes dynamically curtailing energy loads and optimizing other onsite equipment and distributed energy resources. GridPoint is focused on integrating with other assets and IoT devices of the future that will impact a building’s energy profile – like EV chargers and battery storage – as they deploy at scale.


“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution IoT Platforms Leadership Award reflect innovation driving the fast-growing Internet of Things marketplace. It is my honor to congratulate GridPoint for their innovative work and contribution to this rapidly evolving industry,” said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution Magazine.


“It is my pleasure to recognize GridPoint Intelligence Platform™, an innovative solution that earned GridPoint the 2022 IoT Evolution IoT Platforms Leadership Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from GridPoint in the future.”
