Adura Technologies Wins Three “Top 100” Green Tech Awards


Adura Technologies, a leading provider of wireless lighting and energy management solutions, has been named to three lists of “Top 100” green technology companies in the U.S. in the past five weeks.

The most recent, announced Wednesday, is the 2010 California Game Changer list, sponsored by the Governor's Office of Economic Development. Adura was one of 100 finalists selected from a list of 350 nominations from investors, entrepreneurs and event sponsors throughout the state. The awards honor an elite group of California-based companies that are market-leading in their industry, according to the competition organizers.

In October, Adura earned recognition in the 2010 Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group, providers of leading global market research, events and advisory services for the cleantech industry. The list was created in collaboration with the Guardian News.

Adura also was chosen in October by AlwaysOn, a leading business networking media company, as one of the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Top 100 winners. Adura's inclusion in the list signifies “leadership among its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets,” according to the announcement.

“We are delighted with these awards,” said Andy Wheeler, CEO. “They not only recognize Adura's past achievements, but our potential for the future.”

Earlier this year, Adura received two other awards -- finalist in the San Francisco Business Times Green Business Award competition, one of only 25 companies selected from a pool of nearly 200; and the Greetechmedia Top 50, a list of the top startups across the nation, as selected by the highly regarded organization.
