WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Edison Awards winners were announced on March 25, 2020. The Battery Condition Annunciator App by NEC Energy Solutions (NEC) took the bronze award for the applied technology – threat, defense and security category.
The Battery Condition Annunciator App is the first-of-its-kind mobile application designed to address safety issues in battery storage systems. The app allows firefighters and emergency personnel to improve situational awareness from a safe distance through automation and remote controls. Since it may often be unclear what the source of the hazard is in the battery unit, the app tells the user exactly what is going on in the system and how best to proceed.
The Battery Condition Annunciator app will save time, money and lives. NEC hopes this application inspires other energy storage integrators to prioritize safety.
Among the nomination entries comprising the best products, services, and businesses in innovation for the year 2020, the Battery Condition Annunciator App was chosen as a winner by a panel of over 3,000 leading business executives from around the world. “After a thorough review, the Edison Awards Judges recognize the Battery Condition Annunciator App as a game-changing innovation standing out among the best new products and services launched in their category,” said Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director of the Edison Awards.
“We are honored to be recognized with this Edison Award highlighting our innovative battery safety features,” said Steve Fludder, CEO of NEC Energy Solutions. “As someone quite familiar with the legacy of Thomas Edison, it gives me great pleasure to see our NEC Energy Solutions team recognized with an award inspired by such a legendary man.”
