Recurve, a San Francisco-based provider of home performance services that help homeowners and contractors create healthy, energy-efficient homes through green energy remodeling, today announced that the company was ranked 3rd among Fast Company's 2010 ranking of the World's Most Innovative Companies in Energy.
To create this year's Most Innovative Companies issue, Fast Company's editorial team analyzed information on thousands of businesses across the globe. The result is a package unlike that of any other business media. It's not just about revenue growth and profit margins; it's about identifying creative models and progressive cultures – to define the many forms of innovation that exist across the business landscape.
"It was invigorating to engage with so many exciting new ideas and developments," said Fast Company editor Robert Safian. "Our goal was to offer a snapshot of the creativity at work in the global marketplace and to inspire the Fast Company audience with illustrations of how powerful and effective business can be."
"It's a great honor to be recognized by Fast Company and to be included in the mix with top energy innovators like First Solar and Silver Spring Networks," said Pratap Mukherjee, CEO of Recurve. "We view this award as yet another sign that 2010 will be the year that energy efficiency moves to the top of the agenda for saving homeowners money, creating green jobs, and cost-effective carbon abatement."
Demand for home energy efficiency upgrades is expected to grow dramatically with the rise of attractive financing and incentives from utilities and city, state, and federal government sources. Recurve has provided expertise and legislative support for Obama's Home Star program (aka Cash for Caulkers), which could provide up to billions of dollars for home energy improvements.
To help the industry meet this increase in demand for home energy efficiency upgrades, Recurve has leveraged its five years of experience into a first of its kind software-as-a-service solution for contractors who wish to perform green retrofits. The software is designed to streamline all parts of the projects, from performing high-quality audits to executing retrofit projects profitably and consistently.
