Toronto, Ontario – On August 9th, 2016, energyX Solutions Inc. (“energyX”) is pleased to announce that its flagship product, My EnergyXpert, has won 2 MIT CoLab Awards, for Impact and People’s Choice in the Smart Zero Carbon Cities 2016 contest.

energyX presented its unique, autonomous, low-cost energy scan as a smart technology that will assist in driving a rapid transition to zero-carbon cities.

“energyX is currently in a period of high growth as we execute and deploy projects with energy suppliers, advisors and educational institutions across North America.  The win at MIT is inline with the vision we share with our clients of providing energy management for all”, stated Nishaant Sangaavi, energyX CEO.

The Climate CoLab is a project of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence in collaboration with many other organizations.   Each year, the MIT Climate Colab runs a competition to identify and promote leading clean technologies to fight climate change. In March 2016, the Climate CoLab opened 14 contests on key challenges the world is facing as we confront climate change ranging from behavioural issues to transportation.

Nearly 500 proposals from around the world were submitted and evaluated by judging panels of industry experts and leading academics.  The top 60 proposals selected as Finalists were also opened for public voting.  After tallying the votes, the awards were announced in each of the 14 contests on August 9th, 2016.

“These MIT Awards are a tremendous honour and validation of our clean technology”, commented Alex Corneglio, energyX CTO. “Winning is about more than certifying our algorithms: it solidifies the impact we have on fighting climate change”.

As an award winner, energyX has been invited to present My EnergyXpert at the MIT Crowds & Climate Conference, one of the largest climate change conferences in the world, on September 28th and 29th in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
