Toronto – 5.14.2019 – Opus One Solutions (“Opus One”) has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, one of the technology industry’s most prestigious prizes.
Finalists for the awards are among the continent’s brightest and most innovative private ventures. Their place among North America’s tech elite has been chosen by Red Herring’s editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management. Previous Top 100 finalists include Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.
“We are honoured to be a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award,” says Joshua Wong, President & CEO of Opus One Solutions. “Reaching this stage of the competition is recognition for the world-class technology we’ve created to help utilities around the world seize new opportunities in an industry that is shifting towards cleaner, smarter, and more decentralized power grids.”
Opus One provides a suite of solutions via its GridOS® platform that enable electric utility partners across North America and Europe to use integrated planning, real-time data and model-based planning tools to analyze energy supply and demand. This capability is becoming increasingly important as utilities plan and manage an increasing number of distributed energy resources (DERs), such as solar energy, energy storage, demand response, and electric vehicles.
The Top 100 North America has become not only a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names, but a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry’s sharpest edge.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2019.”
“Opus One fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I’ve every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world,” added Vieux.
The winners will be announced on May 15.
