REHOVOT, Israel, September 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
BEEMTech, a global provider of advanced lighting control and energy efficiency management solutions, was selected by JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) as one of an elite group of Greentech companies to exhibit next month at the Japanese Smart City Week. BEEMTech, one of only 14 companies worldwide to be selected, will showcase their LightBEEM[TM]system in the JETRO Zone at the Smart City Week at the Pacifico Convention Center in Yokohama, Japan from October 26th to October 28th, organized by Nikkei Business Publications.
LightBEEM[TM] is a complete, easy-to-deploy lighting control and energy management system that delivers facility-wide control, lowering lighting energy costs by as much as 75%. Based on patented technology, LightBEEM's retrofit-ready design allows it to be easily installed in a broad range of commercial buildings without requiring additional wiring. By communicating over existing power lines, rather than requiring new wiring, LightBEEM overcomes one of the chief impediments to widespread adoption of lighting control and energy efficiency systems in existing buildings, while speeding implementation and improving system ROI.
As the importance of energy efficiency grows in Japan, LightBEEM is uniquely poised to provide critical operational and financial benefits by substantially reducing energy usage in normal operations, with the bonus of additional savings during peak usage periods. All of this is accomplished while fully maintaining room occupant comfort and satisfaction.
"Since the crisis that resulted from the earthquake and tsunami, parts of Japan have been suffering from a serious shortfall in the supply of electricity. Major efforts have been invested throughout the country and at all levels to save on electricity and maximize the usage of the available supply. We believe that the unique and smart solutions offered by BEEMTech can make a significant contribution to these efforts and make energy use that much more efficient," says Kei Takagi, manager of the JETRO office in Tel Aviv.
"We are honored to have been selected to participate in Smart City Week. BEEMTech looks forward to this venue acting as a springboard for our entry into this very savvy and important market", said BEEMTech CEO Nati Freiberg. "Interest has already been expressed by some of the Japanese multinational industrial firms, as well as leading construction and building management companies. Apparently, their urban and industrial environments are poised to reap extensive benefits from LightBEEM's retrofitting and design features, along with the high savings and rapid ROI they generate."
JETRO, or the Japan External Trade Organization, is a government-related organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO's core focus in the 21st century has shifted toward promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and helping small to medium size Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.
