Frederick, MD – October 9, 2018 Blue Pillar, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) provider to connect Energy Things®, has earned the prestigious Silver status in the Golden Bridge Awards® for their Energy Network-as-a-Service offering. The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, best deployments, product management, public relations, marketing, corporate communications, international business, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest and new start-ups. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, October 29, 2018 during the annual Red Carpet Golden Bridge Awards Ceremony.

Launched in 2017, Blue Pillar’s Aurora® Energy Network-as-a-Service (ENaaS) solution simplifies access to behind-the-meter data and control from any type of Distributed Energy Resource (DER) that generates, stores, switches, consumes or measures energy. The Aurora ENaaS offering provides the simplest, most affordable path to delivering next generation energy services that require real-time data and control behind-the-meter.

ENaaS is a seamless, end-to-end service built on Blue Pillar’s award-winning Aurora platform that allows energy service providers (ESPs), utilities and application providers to access behind-the-meter data and control. The Aurora ENaaS offering includes full lifecycle management. Blue Pillar’s ENaaS offering eliminates operational deployment and maintenance concerns and delivers all hardware, installation and configuration required to keep the IoT network alive. Behind-the-meter data and control is accessible through an open Application Program Interface (API) that dramatically reduces development time and costs.

“It’s an honor to once again be named a winner by Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition,” said Tom Willie, CEO of Blue Pillar. “These awards are a testament to Blue Pillar’s commitment to enabling greater connectivity and control of behind-the-meter DERs. In our early years of deploying IoT networks, we learned that many customers often lack the ability to deploy, maintain and manage their own networks after commissioning and needed an end-to-end, cradle-to-grave service. That is why we introduced this comprehensive, ‘turnkey,’ Energy Network-as-a-Service approach that takes our customers out of the energy control networking business and allows them to gain a competitive edge by focusing their efforts on how real-time data and control can differentiate their business.”
