Seventh annual awards honor creative solutions to some of the biggest issues facing the world today
Brenmiller Energy Ltd. ("Brenmiller", "Brenmiller Energy” (TASE: BNRG, Nasdaq: BNRG), a global leader in thermal energy storage (TES), announced today it has been given an Honorable Mention for its thermal energy storage system in the Energy and Sustainability category of Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards.
Brenmiller’s bGen TES system is an intelligent, scalable, and cost-effective technology that provides industrial organizations and power producers with around-the-clock low-carbon heat. In addition to renewables, the bGen system can store energy generated by waste heat and other types of clean energy for minutes, hours, or days and produce steam, hot water, or hot air that can be accessed on-demand and used for industrial and power generation processes. This provides critical reliability, protection from renewable intermittency and fluctuations in energy market prices, as well as a solution to decarbonize heat generation.
This year’s World Changing Ideas Awards showcased 45 winners, 216 finalists, and more than 300 honorable mentions—with health, climate, energy, and AI among the most popular categories. A panel of Fast Company editors and reporters selected winners and finalists from a pool of more than 2,200 entries across urban design, education, nature, politics, technology, corporate social responsibility, and more.
“This marks our third clean tech award and recognition in 2023 to date, and we are very pleased to be among a select group of innovators named by Fast Company,” said Brenmiller president and CEO Avi Brenmiller. "Having just inaugurated our gigafactory for thermal energy storage, we are ready to provide clean energy for a clean planet."
“It’s thrilling to see the creativity and innovation that are so abundant among this year’s honorees,” says Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, the entrepreneurs, companies, and nonprofits featured in this package show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems. Our journalists have highlighted some of the most exciting and impactful work being done today—from housing to equity to sustainability—and we look forward to seeing not only how these projects evolve but how they inspire others to develop solutions of their own.”
