JouleX Recognized as the First-Ever Winner of the Award, Which Honors Innovative Concepts, for its Solution to Improve Energy Efficiency
ATLANTA — April 26, 2011 — JouleX, the leading innovator in enterprise energy management systems for data centers, distributed office environments, and facilities, has taken first place in the BT Green Economy category at the Success for Future Awards, collecting a prize of 20,000 euros (or approximately $29,000). Its successful JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) enterprise solution impressed the 17-person jury across the board.
JEM analyzes, offers a visual representation of and manages all IT systems on a company’s internal network. It offers the ability to monitor, analyze and control the energy consumption of all network-connected devices and systems throughout the company. The Success for Future Awards honor projects with depth and genuine social commitment, and which offer accomplished solutions in the areas of environmental protection and sustainability. Prizes are awarded in eight different categories.
“The award shows that there is more and more interest in topics such as green IT and deploying sustainable solutions, both from the public and from business. An increasing number of companies recognize that protecting the environment and being successful in business are no longer incompatible. On the contrary, cutting rising energy consumption and effectively reducing costs require ecological innovation,” explains Josef Brunner, co-founder and executive director of JouleX.
"Acting sustainably is a matter for all of us and has been a key part of BT's business strategy for the last 20 years. In initiating the Success for Future Awards, we want to show that there are lots of fine examples of companies where sustainability and business success go hand in hand. JouleX’s solution was a big hit with the jury, and I am very pleased that we are able to award the BT Green Economy Award to a company which is a real game-changer in the area of sustainability and energy efficiency. We hope that the prize will also encourage other organizations and companies to get more closely involved with pioneering solutions,” explains BT Germany CEO Karsten Lereuth.
The Success for Future award is a newly created sustainability prize which honors people, ideas and projects which combine business success with sustainable action. With the help of interesting, realistic sustainability projects, its objective is to promote greater engagement with sustainability and to inspire imitation. The award was created and is sponsored by BT Germany and Schüco International KG and is supported by EnBW and Bank Sarasin AG.
