By winning this award GridSense now becomes the second Acorn Energy Company to be honored with a GoingGreen Award by AlwaysOn. In 2009 CoaLogix was a GoingGreen award winner, and in 2010 CoaLogix was chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen East Winners.  Acorn successfully completed the sale of CoaLogix in 2011 for $101 million to Energy Capital Partners.

"We are honored to be recognized by GoingGreen," says GridSense CEO Lindon Shiao. "Our intelligent monitoring solutions for transformers and overhead lines are engineered to help utilities provide more reliable and efficient service, helping them maximize current resources and minimize the need for new generation facilities. It's great to be recognized for making progress in those areas."

The GridSense focus on optimization stems from the utility industry's dual challenges of increased efficiency mandates combined with minimal additional resource allocation.  Utilities must do more with what they have, including; adapt to the disruptive influence of renewables, minimize downtime, and meet increasingly stringent efficiency mandates.  GridSense monitoring solutions are designed to help utilities achieve these goals.   

The GoingGreen Global 200 Top Companies to Watch were selected by a panel of industry experts that included the AlwaysOn editorial team, as well as its venture capital and enterprise partners.
