Go Electric recognized for its energy resiliency solution and work with military, commercial and industrial customers

GreenBiz Group today named Go Electric Inc., a leading developer of advanced microgrid solutions for military, commercial and industrial and mobile applications, as one of the 2018 VERGE Vanguard Award honorees based on a global search for leaders who are accelerating an equitable transition to a clean power grid, a zero-emissions transportation system and the circular economy.

In recognizing Go Electric as an award honoree, GreenBiz notes “the Anderson, Indiana-based venture is winning accounts with its mission to provide uninterruptible power to organizations fretting over grid resilience. Its patented technology, called LYNC DR, integrates renewable energy with a microgrid controller, lithium-ion batteries and power conversion.”

“We’re proud to have our resiliency solution recognized among such a venerable collection of clean economy leaders,” said Lisa Laughner, CEO and co-founder of Go Electric. “VERGE events and programs have been a valuable source of support and experience for our company since its earliest stages, making it especially rewarding to be a part of this year’s VERGE Vanguard honorees.”

Go Electric is the only startup company and the only organization with less than 10,000 employees to be individually recognized this year. The other four company honorees are Apple, General Motors, UPS and Xcel Energy.

“The transition to a sustainable and low-carbon economy won’t happen without visionaries and leaders,” said Joel Makower, chairman and executive editor at GreenBiz Group. "The VERGE Vanguard award honors those who are showing the way, setting the path for companies, cities and all of us to follow. We are pleased to honor this year’s cohort as exemplars of the important and inspiring change we all want to see in the world.”

The rest of this year’s roster includes individuals from some of the world’s largest companies, including Google, Tesla, Adidas, C&A and more.
