EpiSensor has been nominated by the Green Way in the Lighting/Energy Efficiency category. The nomination is for the company’s wireless energy monitoring systems that uniquely combine reliability, ruggedness, and interoperability to systematically improve energy performance, lower energy costs, and reduce environmental impact.
“Wireless sensors for energy monitoring, like the EpiSensor system, are vital tools in energy reduction initiatives,” says Blandine Fitzgerald, EpiSensor’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “With our long history of the development of energy efficiency technology, EpiSensor is pleased to be recognised again for the company’s valuable contribution to international clean technology.”
“What differentiates the annual Later Stage Awards is the platform it provides for new technologies to grow,” noted Shawn Lesser Co-Founder of Watershed Capital Group and the GCCA. “Through these awards we help support innovators in the cleantech industry, who are developing their local green economies, by putting them in front of a global audience.”
EpiSensor is a part of a pool of over 160 nominees. GCCA Head Judge Peter Adriaens (Professor of Entrepreneurship and Strategy at the Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies, Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan) will use the Keystone Compact™ Method to screen the nominees and narrow them down to the top three in each category.
The Top 30 will then be evaluated by over 30 venture capital and cleantech judges who select the winners for the Later Stage Award. With more than $3.5 billion invested in clean technology, the GCCA Judges are devoted to later stage companies who have a proven track record in their home market and have the potential for international growth. They include Generation’s Climate Solutions Fund, The Rockefeller Foundation, Dow Venture Capital, BASF Venture Capital and more.
The Best in Class winners will be announced at the Corporate Cleantech Venture Day on November 20th at Sibelius Hall in Lahti, Finland. This event aims to act as a meeting place for cleantech companies looking for investors and corporate partnerships.
