Brad Pilgrim announced as Clean50 Award Winner

We are pleased to announce that our CEO and Co-founder Brad Pilgrim has been recognized as a 2020 Clean50 honouree. The Clean50 Award recognizes Brad’s leadership in re-imagining how smart technology can successfully support energy management and conservation in buildings.

Canada’s Clean50 Award is announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories, who have done the most to advance the causes of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years.

Delta’s criteria in determining Honourees is to consider actual measurable accomplishments carefully, demonstrated innovation, collaboration with other organizations, and the power of the Honouree’s contribution to inspire other Canadians to take similar action.

“Brad Pilgrim was chosen after rigorous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among just 50 Honourees selected from an initial pool of approximately 750 very well-qualified nominees from across Canada,” says Gavin Pitchford, CEO & Founder, Delta Management Group, responsible for the Clean50 Award.

Estimates suggest that buildings make up 40% of all carbon emissions and account for 12% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions.

“Over the past 3 years, Brad has led his company to develop and deploy the first AI-powered energy management platform for multi-residential buildings in order to champion his personal mission to eliminate energy waste in buildings, Using this platform,” says Pitchford. “Brad and his team have helped prevent more than 14 million lbs of CO2 emissions from their customers’ buildings since 2017, saving them an average of more than $60,000 per year in utility use, and are contracted to save their current customer base of more than $2 million in the coming year.”

Parity remotely controls and optimizes HVAC systems 24/7/365 to deliver automatic energy savings and revenue to multifamily residential buildings and hotels.

The Parity approach eliminates the need for constant manual adjustments and allows building managers to achieve maximum energy efficiency while reducing their staff’s workload. Optimization can be used on equipment related to heating, cooling, fresh air, and domestic water. This includes boilers, chillers, cooling towers, condenser pumps, hydronic pumps, makeup air units, and booster pumps.

“I am proud to have received the 2020 Clean50 Award. It is a privilege to be included among such esteemed thought leaders and change-makers,” says Pilgrim. “I am even more pleased to continue to work in the area of energy management, collaborating with the Parity team to deliver innovative thinking and solutions that directly result in an improved and sustainable urban living experience.
