(PRWEB) September 23, 2010
Cavet Technologies Inc. today announced it is a winner of the prestigious Deloitte Technology Green 15™ Award, an award created in 2007 to showcase 15 Canadian companies that are leading the way to create major breakthroughs in the field of green technology. Cavet Technologies was recognized for its innovation of LumiSmart ILC, an intelligent lighting controller and the company’s flagship product.
“The Deloitte Technology Green 15 Award recognizes those Canadian companies that offer solutions to global environmental challenges by creating intellectual property and technology that reduce society’s environmental impact,” said John Ruffolo, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte. “Companies such as Cavet Technologies are creating technology solutions that have a significant environmental impact and demonstrate a compelling return on investment, despite facing tough economic times. In doing so, they are helping position Canada as a global leader in the development of commercially-viable green technology.”
"We are delighted that Cavet Technologies has received this recognition from such a prestigious organization, said Albert Behr, President and CEO for Cavet Technologies. “The nominees for this esteemed award include some of the most innovative solutions introduced in the cleantech industry. We credit our success to our patented technology and global distribution strategy. LumiSmart ignites a new way of thinking about energy efficient lighting solutions and offers a number of energy and costing savings benefits.”
LumiSmart ILC is the first of a new class of Smart Grid-enabled lighting controllers that provide microprocessor-driven adaptive control of lighting circuits to reduce power consumption while providing an instant 30 per cent or more power reduction without replacing any existing lamps, ballasts or fixtures. LumiSmart ILC also helps reduce carbon emissions by actively reducing energy consumption at the source, and therefore minimizes strain on the electrical grid. This decrease in carbon footprint results in a reduction in greenhouses gases released into the atmosphere.
