BluWave-ai Wins IEEE Award for Clean Technology Innovation

Company Recognized for Product Innovation and Market Strategy

Ottawa, Canada – November 16, 2019

At the 75th Annual IEEE Ottawa Section AGM and banquet last night, BluWave-ai was presented with the 2019 Outstanding Clean Technology Company Recognition Award. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a global association with nearly half a million members and is a world leader on a wide array of technology specialties. BluWave-ai received the award from Dr. Wahab Almuhtadi and Raed Abdullah, Chair and Vice-Chair, respectively, of the IEEE Ottawa Section Awards & Recognition Committee. The event was attended by 200 IEEE members from both academia and industry.

“We were very impressed with BluWave-ai’s use of artificial intelligence coupled with big data analytics to enable sustainable, affordable, and reliable energy”, stated Dr. Almuhtadi. “Our selection is based on a broad range of criteria, including level of innovation, patents, and the market strategy nationally and internationally.”

BluWave-ai’s platform uses data from IoT sensors and global weather feeds to predict renewable energy generation and utility energy needs in real-time, optimizing both sides and minimizing how much transmission grid energy is required. The BluWave-ai Edge product is deployed in multiple locations. BluWave-ai Center manages them, carries out the intensive computing of input data, and continuously adapts AI models to predict, optimize, and dispatch control back to the Edge.

"We at BluWave-ai are on a mission to enable the transition towards a smarter electric grid with a significant penetration of renewable energies and electric vehicles,” commented Mostafa Farrokhabadi, BluWave-ai Director of Grid Analytics & Technology. “Our technology relies on a diverse set of skills and expertise, many of which fall under the category of one or more IEEE societies.”

“The recent recognition by the IEEE Ottawa Section is a great motivation and an indication that we are on the right path,” added Hubert Sugeng, BluWave-ai’s Director of Engineering. “Congratulations to each of our clever and thoughtful staff for all their accomplishments that made the award possible."
