SCIenergy, Inc., the global leader in cloud-based energy management solutions for building owners and operators, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winners. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in green technology. SCIenergy was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“We are honored to be selected as a GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winner,” said SCIenergy CEO Steve Gossett, Jr. “On behalf of all of my SCIenergy teammates, I’d like to thank the selection board for this award for recognizing our potential to completely change the energy efficiency market.”
SCIenergy is dedicated to optimizing building energy performance by leveraging a unique combination of technology and financial solutions to provide large scale energy efficiency to the built environment. SCIenergy’s solutions rely on both its cloud based building optimization software platform known as SCIwatch as well as its unique Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service model known as a Managed Energy Services Agreement (MESA). Through MESA, building owners are able to acquire the beneficial use of energy efficiency upgrades through an “as-a-service model”.
“This year’s GoingGreen Global 200 displays a maturity in the green technology industry that makes it very attractive to both investors and innovators. Greentech research is maturing rapidly, and as it couples with technology innovators and investors, companies are emerging that have the ability to change the way we live our lives for the better and bring huge returns to their founders and funders,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s GoingGreen Global 200 winners are pushing the bounds of how technology can bring about change in the war on our planet’s waning resources. The strength of these companies lies in their ability to nurture innovative ideas and see them through to successful, sustainable, and profitable businesses.”
SCIenergy was selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and green technology industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
