Frederick, MD – December 1, 2015 – Blue Pillar, provider of the world’s first vendor-agnostic Energy Network of Things platform that connects and controls any distributed energy asset, announced today that its Aurora platform has been named Top Product of the Year by Energy Manager Today. In its inaugural year, the Energy Manager Today Awards are designed to celebrate achievements in energy management efforts that show innovation, efficiency, reliability, and contribution to the bottom line from companies that are making the biggest difference in the field.


“Receiving Energy Manager Today’s Top Product of the Year Award is truly an honor. We believe energy management data is a right, not a privilege, and can appreciate the challenge energy managers face when they have very little real-time data to help them achieve their energy management goals,” said Tom Willie, CEO of Blue Pillar. “With Aurora, we provide the data energy managers need to drive energy efficiency goals by offering simplified, ubiquitous connectivity to any energy asset. If it switches, generates, consumes or measures electricity, we can connect it into our Aurora energy controls network that is vendoragnostic and cyber-secure.”


This year’s award was judged by experts working in the field of energy management from companies including: Capital One, COX Enterprises, IBM, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Wellborn Cabinet, Union Bank, and USG Corporation.


According to the judges, Blue Pillar’s “ability to connect to so many diverse types of equipment is an advantage. Energy managers want to make decisions based on data so they can zone in and respond appropriately, and this technology is a perfect tool… It can add new equipment without custom software programming and has also worked with cyber-security experts, a real benefit.”
