Deloitte’s 2015 Fast 500 companies were announced on November 12th and included Blue Pillar as one of the top 15 energy companies to watch.
Frederick, MD, November 13, 2015 — Blue Pillar today announced it has been ranked one of the top 15 energy tech companies in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America.
“Fast revenue growth is a byproduct of solving real world customer problems with highly innovative solutions in a rapidly growing marketplace,” said Tom Willie, CEO of Blue Pillar. “Commercial facilities all over the world are looking for ways to become more efficient, resilient, and self-sufficient but have struggled with their own ability to affordably and securely get connectivity and control over their highly distributed and vendor proliferated energy infrastructure. Blue Pillar’s Energy Network of Things platform provides for ubiquitous, vendor agnostic, secure connectivity and control of energy assets that before could only have been accomplished through highly expensive, time consuming, and custom system integrations. By connecting such a wide variety of energy assets from legacy diesel generators and meters to cutting-edge microgrids and energy storage technologies, we have completely disrupted how facilities can more easily and cost-effectively reach their aggressive energy goals.”
“Amid a fierce business climate, there seems to be no shortage of new and established companies that are unlocking a seemingly unlimited potential for growth and advancement through technology’s continued disruption and proliferation across industries,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “It is inspiring to witness the innovative ways that companies are incorporating emerging technologies for business gains, be it cognitive computing, or the Internet of Things. We congratulate all those ranked on this year’s Fast 500 and look forward to seeing their continued growth into 2016.”
“Through the efforts and utilization of new and emerging technologies from these companies, we are witnessing greater business demands from across almost all industries,” added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve these companies as they strive to grow to the next level – be it towards introducing new solutions or entering new markets – and with it make important and long lasting impressions on the technology market as a whole.”
