Energy companies from 25 countries have been selected as Finalists. The 2016 Finalists, chosen from over 170 nominees from 30 nominating countries, were announced by program host S&P Global Platts, the leading global provider of energy and commodities information and spot market benchmarks.
Sentient Energy will be competing with 11 other exceptional companies for the “Rising Star – Company” award. Sentient Energy develops, manufactures and sells power-grid analytics systems for leading electric utilities. Sentient’s Grid Analytics System consists of MM3® intelligent line sensors, distributed software apps, and the Sentient Ample® Analytics Suite.
Sentient Energy line sensors have been referred to as the new ‘wearables’ for the electric grid. Along with Sentient Energy’s analytics software, their ability to detect and define anomalies are helping major North American Utilities reduce the number and duration of service disruptions, and to anticipate and remediate problems before they occur. As the growth of distributed solar power continues to transform the electric distribution grid from single to bidirectional power flow, Sentient Energy sensors and analytics will provide the grid intelligence necessary to maintain safety and efficiency in this new distributed model.
Established in 1999 and often described as “the Oscars of the energy industry,” the Platts Global Energy Awards highlight corporate and individual innovation, leadership and superior performance in 18 categories that span the entire energy complex.
Hundreds of energy industry representatives are expected to attend the 2016 Platts Global Energy Awards black-tie dinner gala in New York City on December 8. The awards program will be emceed by CNBC Reporter Jackie DeAngelis.
