FridgeWize is finalist in 2016 Energy Awards
FridgeWize’s award-winning Q Blade is up for the Energy Efficient Product of the Year — HVAC&R. Earlier this month the Q Blade received the Innovation of the Year Award at the RAC Cooling Industry Awards. The Energy Awards celebrates excellence for the intelligent use of energy.
“There is an immense talent that exists across the energy industry, despite the continually challenging environment, and the fact that FridgeWize has been selected as a finalist is testament to the work they have achieved in this sector over the past year,” said Andrew Gaved, Editor-in-Chief of H&V News and RAC, and host of the Energy Awards.
Founded in Carbondale in 2010, FridgeWize has grown to be a multi-million-dollar energy-efficiency company focused on the most efficient carbon fiber fan blades in the industry including the revolutionary Q Blade.
“It is truly rewarding for FridgeWize to receive this recognition from the international community, and provides validation to the effort put forth, to the product, and to everything the Q Blade has made possible in the energy saving world,” said Ryan Grobler, FridgeWize President and CEO.
FridgeWize also won the Environmental Leader’s Top Product of the Year in 2015 and was a finalist at the 2015 Platts Global Energy Awards for Commercial Application of the Year.
