CrowdComfort and New England Hydropower Company were two of twelve companies chosen to present at the White House for a “Datapalooza” event on Wednesday, May 28, 2014. Sponsored by the White House, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the General Services Administration, the 2014 Energy Datapalooza recognizes private-sector innovators that are harnessing the power of data to build the clean energy economy.
Martha Farmer, CEO of North Shore InnoVentures (NSIV), was pleased that the organization had such a strong presence at the event: “The fact that one-sixth of the speakers were NSIV members reflects our continuing efforts to attract innovative startups that are poised for success.”
Since its inception in 2013, CrowdComfort has been closing the gap between human communication and energy data by aggregating occupant feedback and delivering actionable reports to facility managers. Through its ongoing success, it continues to prove that humans are our most powerful source of information for concrete ways to reduce our energy consumption and build a more sustainable world. www.crowdcomfort.com
About New England Hydropower (NEHC)
New England Hydropower is a Massachusetts-based company founded in 2012 to develop the region’s renewable hydropower resources in an environmentally and wildlife friendly fashion. Throughout New England there are thousands of legacy dams from the industrial revolution that are suitable as small-scale, run of river hydro sites, but have been dormant until now. NEHC hopes to change this landscape by applying a proven technology recently adopted in the UK and Europe, the Archimedes Screw Generator. www.NEHydropower.com
