Vancouver, B.C. April 23, 2015 Enbala Power Networks (Enbala) was named today by Greentech Media’s Grid Edge 20 as one of the 20 most innovative firms working to architect the electric power industry’s future. With a focus on building a sustainable energy future, Enbala develops industry-changing solutions for distributed energy resource management. Awardees were selected based on their contribution to grid edge technology transformation, increasingly critical at a time when utility business models are facing change and more distributed energy resources are coming online.
“This is the second year in a row that Enbala has been honored with this prestigious award,” said Enbala CEO Bud Vos. “The entire Enbala team regards this as a testament to our passion for leveraging distributed energy to make the world’s power grids more sustainable. We couldn’t be happier to be included with the other 19 industry-changing companies who were selected along with us.”
Greentech Media– with extensive industry reach and analytical expertise– leveraged ongoing interaction with power utilities as well as energy stakeholders and other thought leaders to identify the Grid Edge 20. Greentech Media’s Grid Edge Executive Council members also voted to help determine the final award recipients.
“The Grid Edge 20 is an annual benchmark for our industry,” said Steve Propper, Director of Grid Edge at Greentech Media. “This year’s group is made up of technology vendors making the greatest impact on the market in terms of deploying disruptive solutions commercially. It also includes utilities making smart investments to optimize their distribution network architecture and prepare for the future architecture of the grid.”
The Grid Edge 20 is part of the Grid Edge program at Greentech Media, which includes original research from GTM Research, the Grid Edge Executive Council, events such as Grid Edge Live 2015, and ongoing news and multimedia coverage.
Grid Edge Live 2015, being held in San Diego, CA from June 23-25, will bring together Grid Edge 20 companies and more than 500 executive and thought leader attendees. The event will highlight how grid modernization technologies, the advanced energy consumer and new policies and business models are transforming the future of the electric grid.
