Toronto, September 23rd, 2010 – ecobee, the maker of the ecobee Smart Thermostat and Energy Management System (EMS) announced it was selected for the Deloitte Technology Green 15TM awards for the second year in a row.
The Deloitte Technology Green 15TM award honors companies who have developed technology solutions and intellectual property that promote a more efficient use and re-use of the earth’s resources. These companies reduce or eliminate environmental impacts while improving operational performance and productivity.
“Winning this award for the second year in a row endorses what we do here at ecobee.” said Stuart Lombard, president and CEO of ecobee. “The features and benefits that the ecobee Smart Thermostat and the Energy Management System deliver, have a real and meaningful impact on our customers, their businesses and the communities they live in.”
The ecobee Smart Thermostat for residential applications is designed for ease of use and energy savings. ecobee’s intelligent algorithms allow consumers to save up to 20 percent on their heating and cooling costs. Internet connectivity allows them the convenience of accessing home settings anywhere at anytime through a personalized web portal or iPhone and iPod app.
The ecobee EMS, for the commercial sector, is ideal in applications where a simple programmable thermostat does not provide adequate controls and functionality and a full-scale building automation system is too complex and cost prohibitive. The EMS is user friendly, maximizes any buildings efficiency, reduces energy consumption and delivers significant cost savings.
“ecobee is quickly becoming a leader in energy management. We create every product with the goal of reducing environmental impact,” added Lombard. “With systems for both the residential and commercial market, ecobee is creating a culture of conservation by using unique technological advancements to make both households and buildings more efficient without sacrificing comfort.”
