Efficient Energy America Selected as Finalist for NCTA 21 Awards

Intelligent Building Optimization Technology Recognized in Green Technology Company and Small Technology Company Categories

WILMINGTON, NC--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Efficient Energy America (E2America), a leading supplier of building optimization technology, announced today that the company has been selected by The North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA) as a finalist in two categories for the prestigious NCTA 21 Awards. E2America is being recognized in the categories of Green Technology Company and Small Technology Company for the company's HVAC control, optimization and real-time reporting systems, and the technology's ability to reduce electricity costs, usage and carbon emissions for commercial buildings. Winners will be recognized at NCTA's annual awards gala on Thursday, Nov. 10 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham, N.C., presented in conjunction with title sponsor Grant Thornton.

The NCTA recognition is the latest endorsement for the impact that E2America's technology is having across North Carolina and nationwide. Earlier this year, the UNCW Entrepreneurship Center and the Greater Wilmington Business Journal selected E2America as the Coastal Entrepreneur Award winner.

E2America's systems are installed in McDonalds, Bojangles, Taco Bell and Golden Corral franchises, as well as other commercial buildings across the U.S. Customers typically save as much as $800 each month, per location, on electricity costs after installation. E2America's system more directly impacts overall energy consumption by optimizing HVAC performance and better managing electricity demand. The technology not only considers the environment inside a commercial building, but also considers the environment a building is in, ensuring maximum thermal comfort in all areas. It is the only system that takes into account 19 variables, including external weather data, internal and external humidity, solar heat load and building occupancy to continually monitor, control and optimize the operation of the building's HVAC systems.

"We are pleased to be recognized in two categories for the prestigious 21 Awards," said Dara O'Neill, E2America CEO. "We continually hear from our customers about the benefits our technology brings to their businesses in reducing electricity costs and usage. It's especially rewarding to have those endorsements and our technology validated by a well-respected organization like NCTA."
