Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 1, 2008
ETAP Energy Management System has been awarded the highest honor in Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine's 2008 Product of the Year annual competition. ETAP won the Gold award in the category of Software Design, Model and Analysis and will be recognized in the October 2008 issue.
The Consulting-Specifying Engineer Product of The Year awards were established to provide a compilation of the best new products in the major engineering system disciplines. Winners are chosen in a two-step process. First, by an independent panel of engineering judges that score all entrants as finalist. Subscribers then score each product finalist, with the top winner taking the Gold honor.
"The Product of the Year competition highlights new or refined products that engineers have found valuable during the products' first year in the market," said Michael Ivanovich, Editor-in-Chief of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine.
"Competition was fierce this year; the judges had a hard time narrowing the finalists down to three for each category," said Jim Langhenry, Publisher of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine. "We take this as a sign that manufacturers are investing more in new-product R&D."
"We are proud to have ETAP selected the best software in design, modeling, and analysis of power systems by Consulting-Specifying Engineer judges and readers," said Dr. Farrokh Shokooh, President and CEO of OTI. "This honor confirms that ETAP is filling an important product need for real-time systems with a comprehensive modeling environment, system optimization and automation, and state-of-the-art energy management applications."
