Blue Pillar Wins Energy Industry Innovation of the Year

Nov 18 2015


Frederick, MD – November 17, 2015 – Blue Pillar, provider of Aurora® — the world’s first vendor-agnostic Energy Network of Things™ platform that connects and controls any distributed energy asset — today announced it received Gold and Silver at the 2015 Golden Bridge Awards in San Francisco, California. The coveted annual award encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services from major industries worldwide. 


“Being recognized as an Energy Industry Innovation of the Year by the Golden Bridge Awards judges is truly an honor,” said Tom Willie, Blue Pillar CEO. “Commercial facilities all over the world are looking for ways to become more energy efficient, resilient and self-sufficient. Historically, solutions that could help them securely gain control over their highly distributed and vendor proliferated energy infrastructure have been lacking. Blue Pillar’s Aurora solution is disrupting the energy management industry with its open Energy Network of Things platform. By offering simple, ubiquitous and affordable connectivity, Aurora allows anyone the ability to take control of their energy future.”


Blue Pillar’s Aurora Energy Network of Things platform provides ubiquitous, vendoragnostic, 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 all “behind the meter” energy assets regardless of make, model, vintage, age or type, facilities and grid operations have been able to improve resiliency and increase energy efficiency, while energy service providers are using the platform to become more energy self-sufficient. This turnkey approach has completely disrupted the energy management industry by connecting more than 4,000 assets and allowing facilities to more easily and cost-effectively reach their aggressive energy goals.
