Ken Hagaman, Anixter, and Ted Pinnow, United Stationers, Pronounced
Energy Champion-End User Co-Winners
LOS ALTOS, Calif. - October 28, 2014 -
Daintree Networks, the leader in open wireless smart building solutions
for enterprise control and energy management, today announced the
winners of its first annual Energy Champion Awards. The awards were
created to honor the efforts of those in the industry who are openly
driving awareness to save energy by using technologies and processes to
reduce energy consumption in warehouses, offices, retail stores, and
other commercial buildings. In concert with National Energy Awareness
Month, Daintree announced the winners yesterday at Verge 2014 in San
Today, energy efficiency is front and center of the American agenda as highlighted during National Energy Awareness Month. Former President Bill Clinton delivered a keynote at the World Energy Engineering Congress earlier this month and focused on two solutions to the national energy crisis: building retrofits and renewable energy. He estimated that if 25 percent of existing buildings in the U.S. were retrofitted over the next 10 years, with each building averaging a 20 percent reduction in energy consumption, national energy consumption would be reduced by 10 percent. On the heels of this momentum, Daintree Networks is proud to recognize the industry's Energy Champions.
Daintree Networks Energy Champion award winner in the Thought Leader category is Jim Sinopoli, managing principal, Smart Buildings, LLC. The Thought Leader award is given to the person who has made the biggest impact in raising awareness for the need to save energy in the commercial sector in 2014. Sinopoli was chosen for his pioneering work in designing and engineering operationally efficient, intuitive and sustainable buildings over nearly three decades as well as spreading awareness throughout the corporate community.
"It is an honor to be recognized with an Energy Champion award. It validates the impact of our ongoing efforts to optimize building technology systems and networks for greater energy efficiency," said Jim Sinopoli.
In the End User category, Daintree Networks Energy Champion award co-winners are Ken Hagaman, director of Real Estate Services for Anixter, Inc., and Ted Pinnow, facilities maintenance manager at United Stationers. The End User award is granted to individuals whose efforts have reaped the greatest demonstrated results in terms of reduced energy consumption and overall energy savings within their company.
Hagaman was instrumental in driving Anixter's efforts to achieve significant energy savings and operational efficiencies using streamlined processes and innovative building control and energy management technologies in the company's various facilities including warehouse and office buildings.
Under Pinnow's oversight, wholesale business-products distributor United Stationers achieved monthly lighting savings of 94 percent after it installed an intelligent lighting system consisting of LED fixtures and a wireless, open standards-based control system at its Sacramento, Calif., site.
"As a leading advocate of open solutions for building energy management, we believe it's important to recognize the efforts of those who are both championing the need to save energy and those who have proved themselves champions in those efforts," noted Daintree CEO Danny Yu. "We congratulate the winners and applaud their valuable efforts in energy conservation. Thank you, also, to all the nominees - we look forward to their continued work and hope they will participate again next year."
