January has been a busy month for Blue Pillar. In the last week, the company announced it received an IoT Evolution Award – the 5th award for the Aurora® Energy Network of Things™ platform in just 3 months. Continuing this winning streak, today Blue Pillar announced they were recognized by the Global Cleantech 100 for a second consecutive year. This prestigious award is presented by the Cleantech Group and honors companies with the most innovative and promising technologies in the cleantech industry. Not a stranger to cleantech awards and recognition, Blue Pillar ended 2015 by being named the 15th fastest growing energy tech company on the Deloitte Fast 500™ and won Energy Manager Today’s Product of the Year Award.  This momentum is a result of Blue Pillar’s ability to offer simplified, ubiquitous behind-the-meter connectivity for distributed generation assets. With its novel approach to self-prescribe secure IoT networks to connect behind-the-meter distributed energy resources, Aurora enables the real-time control of assets and collection of data to be used by a variety of applications and services such as microgrids, demand response and energy management.

Today, Blue Pillar announced Aurora®’s expanded connectivity to building meters for real-time access to water, gas, electric and steam data. With access to real-time meter data, facilities can now standardize operations into one platform that reaches across their entire energy portfolio without customized systems integration. The meter is often the most stranded asset in a building’s energy equipment portfolio. With simplified, out-of-the-box connectivity to meters and distributed generation assets, facilities can now standardize on a platform to establish a real-time energy baseline across all of their facilities. The platform also includes an accompanying suite of free energy data visualization and reporting capabilities such as Energy Heat Maps, Portfolio Drift, Period-Over-Period Comparisons, Load Study Reporting, Peak Demand Management and integration to third party energy management or dashboards.

The updated Aurora platform is currently available and will be demoed at the upcoming DistribuTECH conference at booth 2141 in Orlando, Florida Feb. 9 – 11, 2016.  For more information, contact us at today and be sure to download our e-book on the top 5 disruptive trends that will impact the energy management industry in the coming year.
