Bloomberg New Energy Finance announced eMeter as a 2011 New Energy Pioneer. In its second year, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneer program named nine other companies at the fourth annual Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit in New York.
"eMeter is thrilled to be recognized by Bloomberg New Energy Finance as one of today's energy industry pioneers," said eMeter Chief Executive Officer Gary Bloom. "Arming our customers with the information they need to ensure safe, cost-effective energy delivery and engagement with consumers will be essential to moving the future global energy economy forward."
eMeter provides essential Smart Grid and consumer engagement software that enables electric, gas and water utilities to reduce operational costs, improve customer service, and drive energy efficiency. With more than four times the deployment scale of its nearest competitor and strategic partnerships with Verizon, Accenture, IBM, SAP and Siemens, eMeter has built a reputation for innovation, unparalleled experience and domain expertise in the energy industry that they have leveraged to build market-leading technology that will enable utilities to unleash the full benefits of the Smart Grid.
In its second year, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneers program identifies companies from across the world that are making significant gains in the field of clean technology and innovation. A panel of industry experts, led by Bloomberg New Energy Finance technology specialists, chose the honorees by assessing them against three criteria: potential scale, innovation and momentum.
This year's winners represent a broad range of industries including bioenergy, energy smart technologies, water and solar. Each of the New Energy Pioneers has worked to develop unique technologies and has demonstrated the potential for these technologies to be competitive in the marketplace and implemented on a large scale.
"The panel chose these companies because we feel they have the potential to change the energy landscape in a very significant way," said Michael Liebreich, Summit chairman and head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance. "In this fast-evolving sector, the Pioneers could play a major role in the world's transition to a lower carbon energy system."
Other winners include BrightSource Energy, Epuramat, Green Biologics, Metabolix, On-Ramp Wireless, Redwood Systems, SAGE Electrochromics, TaKaDu and Winafrique.
The Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneers Program is sponsored by AutoDesk and Morrison & Foerster.
