(PRWEB) November 3, 2010
Cavet Technologies Inc. today announced it was awarded Company of the Year by CleanTech North. The company was recognized for its accelerated growth outside of Canada. This expansion was attributed to LumiSmart ILC, an intelligent lighting controller and the company’s flagship product.
“CleanTech North’s mandate is to accelerate growth of Canadian cleantech companies, said Henry Vehovec, Executive Director for CleanTech North. “This award pays tribute to Cavet Technologies growth efforts and underscores the company’s success.”
The CleanTech North selected the Company of the Year by an advisory panel of Canada’s foremost authorities on cleantech, based on proprietary technology; market potential, domestically and internationally; quantifiable sustainability benefits, such as energy reduction, environment improvement, greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction, carbon footprint cutback; scalability of business model; and management team.
"We are honored that Cavet Technologies has received this acknowledgement, said Albert Behr, President and CEO for Cavet Technologies. “We attribute our success to our patented technology and global distribution strategy. LumiSmart ignites a new way of thinking about energy efficient lighting solutions. Our unique approach to energy conservation versus energy generation defines the virtual power plant.”
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.
