Boston, MA, April 4, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Energy Points, a source energy intelligence company, is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as one of the top ten Wall Street Journal’s “Next Big Thing in Cleantech.” Today Founder and CEO, Dr. Ory Zik, joined four other recognized entrepreneurs in giving their elevator pitches to the ECO:nomics audience, which included the world’s leading CEOs, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and industry experts.

“I am thrilled that the value and impact of comprehensively quantifying and analyzing source energy is being recognized. Source energy is where long-term corporate profit meets sustainable business practices,” said Dr. Zik.

Organizations recognize that energy resilience is critical to their operations. Energy Points source energy analytics enables organizations to optimize and de-risk their energy supply chains. The Energy Points platform uses geospatial ‘big data’ and sophisticated algorithms to quantify source energy, measuring energy use from its source to the site of consumption, while accounting for resource scarcity and environmental impact. The insights provided help organizations make information-driven decisions about their energy sources, including: when to invest in distributed energy alternatives, which sources present the least risk and environmental impact, and, based on location, which projects will have the greatest energy and financial returns.

“In the last 10 years great progress has been made with energy efficiency on site,” said Dr. Zik. “The market is ready to have that same progress extend to the source. When you know that nearly 80% of carbon emissions come from source energy, it becomes clear that we have to start measuring and analyzing it. Corporations want their business practices to support resilience and long-term growth. They just need to see the numbers that directly tie those practices to the bottom-line. That’s what we do.”

For Energy Points, validation from the world’s leading CEOs, policy makers, and industry experts is promising. It is consistent with shifting perceptions around long-term profit, energy resilience, and environmental sustainability—they are inextricable linked. With Energy Points, organizations can now quantify and understand exactly how.
