Luxim Named Best Emerging Cleantech Company by the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - Last night at its Energy Awards celebration, the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal named LUXIM "Best Emerging Cleantech Company." The ceremony was held at the Computer History Museum to recognize dedicated companies and leaders in cleantech and energy conservation in Silicon Valley. LUXIM joined other category winners that included the City of San Jose, Coulomb Technologies, GlassPoint Solar Inc., Google and Hara. The award is the latest for the company and its energy-efficient Light Emitting Plasma [LEP™] technology. Earlier this year, LUXIM was named a top-10 cleantech company by The Wall Street Journal.

"It's an honor to be recognized alongside prominent energy leaders in our community," said LUXIM's CEO Tony McGettigan. "We're all motivated by the same goal: create inventive technology that reduces energy consumption and improves the environment. For us, it's sustainable light-source solutions for city streets, industrial work areas, parking lots and other venues. In these high-output applications, our LEP technology is cutting energy consumption by 50 percent while providing better-quality light at a much lower overall cost."

Last night's event marked a debut for the publication's Energy Awards. McGettigan commended the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal for its excellent coverage of the energy sector and its role in promoting the region as a center of energy technology innovation.
