Platts Global Energy Awards - 2011 Finalist

Richardson, Texas (October 6, 2011)–Lennox Industries has been selected as a finalist in the Platts Global Energy Awards, an annual program recognizing exemplary industry leadership. The 2011 finalists, selected from more than 200 nominations, were announced this week by program host Platts, the leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals and metals information.

Established in 1999 and often described as “the Oscars” of the energy industry, Platts Global Energy Awards highlight corporate and individual innovation, leadership and superior performance in 19 categories spanning the entire energy complex.

Lennox’ SunSource® Commercial Energy System—the first and only commercial HVAC system to integrate directly with solar power—is a finalist in the “Sustainable Technology Innovation of the Year” category. All finalists in this category receive a 2011 Award of Excellence.

“We congratulate our finalists and look forward to spotlighting their accomplishments and all others when we unveil the Global Energy Awards winners in December.” said Larry Neal, president of Platts.

Designed to reduce business energy spending and emissions, the SunSource Commercial Energy System uses the sun’s clean, free energy to provide heating and cooling to buildings, while helping to reduce their carbon footprint. Integrating easily with Lennox’ Energence® rooftop unit, the SunSource system can provide effective efficiency levels of 34 SEER and beyond6.

Nearly 600 guests are expected to attend the black-tie dinner at New York’s Cipriani Wall Street on Thursday, December 1, when the 2011 Global Energy Awards will be presented by Platts.

The awards event will be preceded in the morning of December 1 with an associated event, Platts Global Energy Outlook Forum, which features roundtable discussions from debates from executives, government officials and industry leaders on “The World’s Quest for Clean Energy.”
