Menlo Park, CA - June 18, 2008 - Award-winning business magazine Sustainable Industries today announced Agilewaves' flagship product, the Resource Monitor(TM) as one of its 2008 Top 10 Green Building Products winners. Sustainable Industries' Top 10 Green Building Products guide is an annual publication profiling industry-leading green building products selected by a panel of expert judges and the Sustainable Industries editorial team. This year's Top 10 Green Building Products guide is the first-ever digital publication to contain 3-D images of green building products that can be manipulated by the viewer and plugged directly into actual design sketches.
Agilewaves' Resource Monitor was selected based on its environmental performance, scalability/market impact, innovativeness, design aesthetic, value and compatibility with the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. Profiled in the guide with accompanying 3-D images, the winners were announced today in a Sustainable Industries Webinar featuring judges from the expert panel. The 2008 Top 10 Green Building Products guide is emailed to Sustainable Industries subscribers and is available for free online at www.sustainableindustries.com/resources.
"In the years Sustainable Industries has produced this trusted and popular independent guide, green building has advanced from cutting-edge to mainstream," says Brian Back, Founding Editor and Publisher of Sustainable Industries. "But not all products with eco-monikers are as high-performing as innovative as builders and their well-intentioned clients demand. We're confident the Top 10 Green Building Products guide provides a snapshot of some of the most innovative building materials on the market today."
"We are honored that the Resource Monitor was recognized by Sustainable Industries as a Top 10 Green Building Product," said Peter Sharer, CEO Agilewaves. "It highlights the growing demand for innovative and customized monitoring solutions that can measure not only a buildings' use of gas, water and electricity, but also gauge the efficacy of proactive green approaches such as solar panels and living architecture."
Founded in 2006, Agilewaves provides the most in-depth building utilities management solutions available on the market. A leader in conservation technology, the flagship Resource Monitor(TM) displays on a touch-screen or custom website a building's activity and vital statistics, including gas, electricity and water usage and solar power input.
