enVerid Systems Wins Red Herring’s 2018 Top 100 North America Award

This month, we are delighted to feature our client, enVerid Systems, a private technology company that has revolutionized heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) through the development of their HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) technology. On June 28, 2018, enVerid Systems received Red Herring’s 2018 Top 100 North America Award in recognition of its innovative approach to improving indoor air quality and promoting energy efficiency.

The prestigious Red Herring 2018 Top 100 North America Award recognizes the most exciting and innovative private technology companies. enVerid Systems stood out amongst thousands of competitors who were judged by industry experts, insiders, and journalists based on criteria including financial performance, innovation, business strategy, and market penetration. As Udi Meirav, the CEO of enVerid Systems, noted, “this award is a testament to the [company’s] impact on buildings, energy savings, the environment and air quality.” In addition to the award, in October 2018, enVerid Systems received an invitation to showcase the company at the Red Herring’s Top 100 Global Event.

The Red Herring award is the most recent in a string of awards that enVerid Systems has won for its pioneering HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) technology. The U.S. Department of Energy listed enVerid Systems as one of the top three HVAC energy-saving technologies for commercial buildings in recognition of the way its HLR technology fundamentally changed HVAC designs in commercial building. Instead of employing traditional methods that use oversized equipment to focus predominantly on outside air ventilation, enVerid System’s HLR technology efficiently purifies and reuses the air already inside of buildings. The HLR system uses newly developed sorbents to scrub indoor air of harmful contaminants, such as carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), while simultaneously reducing the intake of outdoor pollution. Cutting-edge software combines analyses of the sorbents’ performance with contextual data to monitor and maintain the optimal performance of the filters. This groundbreaking approach results in average annual energy savings of 20% to 30%.

We congratulate enVerid Systems on its achievement and are proud to continue working alongside the company towards a healthier and more sustainable world.
