SolarReserve Leads Renewable Energy Companies At 2012 Platts Global Energy Awards

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --   SolarReserve, a U.S. developer of utility-scale solar power projects, led the renewable energy industry as an award finalist in four categories, including Leading Technology, at the 2012 Platts Global Energy Awards, held in New York on November 29 th. Hosted by Platts, a major energy, metals and petrochemicals information provider worldwide, the annual awards program honors exemplary achievement in the global energy industry, recognizing corporate and individual performance, innovation and entrepreneurship. 


Alongside some the world's leading energy giants, both conventional and alternative energy, SolarReserve received the "Award of Excellence" in the Corporate Stewardship category, which recognizes the company's commitment to corporate social responsibility, efficiency and the production of renewable energy.  SolarReserve CEO, Kevin Smith, captured the " Rising Star – Individual" award in the Vision and Leadership category for his dedication and entrepreneurship in the power and energy industry worldwide. 

"We were pleased that SolarReserve received such significant recognition by Platts and its distinguished panel of judges as a result of our market-leading solar energy storage technology and the progress our team has made in implementing large scale solar projects," said Kevin Smith, SolarReserve's CEO. "While it was an honor to be personally recognized, the individual award is a reflection of the contributions by everyone at SolarReserve to the company's substantial achievements."

SolarReserve has the most advanced solar energy storage technology in the industry as its molten salt power tower design has the capability to deliver clean, reliable electricity at any time, day or night.  SolarReserve's concentrated solar power plants capture and store the sun's thermal energy and can operate on demand just like a conventional coal, natural gas or nuclear power plant, but without the harmful emissions associated with burning fossil fuels or other hazardous wastes associated with conventional power plant technology.  Providing firm and predictable electricity generated from the sun, a limitless fuel, SolarReserve's technology also provides grid stability and a solution to intermittent electricity generation, a problem from which most other renewable technologies suffer.
