SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Green Charge Networks announced that its energy storage platform received Product of the Year honors from the Energy Manager Today Awards. Green Charge’s intelligent energy storage product specifically targets peak demand reduction. Using its predictive software, the product charges when energy is least expensive and feeds energy back into a facility during costly peak times. Green Charge flattens out the spikes in an energy bill and enables a business to pay the lowest possible price for energy at any time of day, said the company. This improves the power efficiency of the facility and the electric grid.

Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges from the following companies: Accenture; Capital One; City of Alexandria, Virgina; COX Enterprises Inc.; General Motors; MUFG Union Bank; IBM; Skidmore Owings & Merrill; U.S. Department of Health & Human Services; USG Corp.; and Wellborn Cabinet Inc.

“Entries that were awarded Top Product of the Year are those that should be carefully considered by companies seeking to improve their own operations in a similar manner,” said Paul Nastu, publisher of Energy Manager Today’s parent company, Business Sector Media.

One judge said of the Green Charge Platform, “For a business, being able to minimize the risk of high energy usage during peak periods where electric prices are the highest is critical. The Green Charge Energy Storage Platform helps mitigate that risk by providing stored energy to businesses during these periods of higher than average pricing.”
