OJAI, Calif. — SimpliPhi Power has been named a 2016 Award Finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™. The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy. SimpliPhi’s high-output batteries will be honored for delivering both peak and baseload power in one compact unit, without generating a thermal profile that requires ventilation or cooling. The High-Output Series, which outperformed competitors in Marine Corp tests by 62%, supplies five times the power (250 amps) compared to similar batteries, while maintaining the non-toxic, small footprint SimpliPhi Power is known for.
“It’s exciting to see companies like SimpliPhi Power continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking,” said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards’ executive director. “Edison Awards recognizes the game-changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers.”
Award winners will be announced April 21, 2016 at the Edison Awards Annual Gala, held in the historic Ballroom of the Capitale in New York City. Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the Finalists’ success in meeting the award’s stringent criteria of quality.
“At SimpliPhi, we all feel truly honored to be receiving such a prestigious award for our technology,” said Stuart Lennox, founder and chief technology officer of SimpliPhi Power. “To make the transition to a more resilient and clean energy-based economy on a global scale, people must have the capacity to harvest, store and utilize their own renewable power on a local, distributed basis that is both robust and versatile for a variety of energy needs.”
