Award recognizes Rhombus for its contribution to improving the environment with its high-power electric vehicle charging systems and for creating clean-tech jobs in Michigan

Rhombus epitomizes the reason that these awards were created – to recognize companies whose products are changing our world for the better,” said Daniel Radomski, Director of the Centrepolis Accelerator at Lawrence Technological University

Rhombus Energy Solutions is pleased to announce that it has been selected by the Centrepolis Accelerator program of Lawrence Technological University as the “Best CleanTech Company in Michigan” for 2020. Rhombus competed with a number of Michigan companies for awards in five different categories and was chosen by public vote as the Best CleanTech Company. The award recognizes companies with the best clean energy, energy efficiency and sustainability technology or products.

“Vehicle electrification for commercial fleets has unique challenges that our team’s innovative engineering delivers solutions for,” said Rick Sander, CEO of Rhombus Energy Solutions. “It is that spirit that drives our product development – the opportunity to provide the marketplace with highly reliable, V2G capable high-power charging infrastructure for medium and heavy duty vehicles. Rhombus is honored to be recognized as the Best CleanTech Company in Michigan by the Centrepolis Accelerator Program at Lawrence Technological University.”

While medium and heavy duty (M/HD) vehicles are only a small part of the overall US vehicle fleet, they are the source of over 40% of the harmful pollutants emitted by the US transportation sector. M/HD vehicles also consume 38% of the energy used in the US transportation fleet. Since these vehicles are utilized for commercial purposes, the reliability and availability of an M/HD fleet’s charging infrastructure is critical. Rhombus is a leading product innovator in this space, as well as a market leader in reliability, maintainability, and availability for M/HD EV fleet chargers. The company’s high-power, bi-directional smart EV chargers are all vehicle to grid (V2G) ready, helping to ease the impact of peak load hours on the energy grid.

“Rhombus epitomizes the reason that these awards were created – to recognize companies whose products are changing our world for the better,” said Daniel Radomski, Director of the Centrepolis Accelerator at Lawrence Technological University. “Rhombus high-power bi-directional electric vehicle chargers are helping to advance the electrification of medium and heavy-duty vehicles, reducing air pollution and increasing energy efficiency in the transportation sector. And what’s more exciting to us, they are developing and manufacturing these products right here in Michigan! We look forward to a continued partnership with Rhombus.”
