Sopogy is one of five showcase winners that will be on display at numerous venues, including the Hawaii Convention Center, Ala Moana Center, and the CEO Summit at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.   Sopogy will also feature in Leader’s Week Hawaii TV in-room hotel program, an APEC Hawaii virtual online exhibit, a full page ad in the Star Advertiser, and a Hawaii Business circular to be distributed to APEC dignitaries and media.

Sopogy’s technologies are helping APEC economies achieve their clean energy goals and create local jobs.  Sopogy has installations in place or in progress in the US, Mexico, Japan and Papua New Guinea, with agreements for further systems in China, Thailand, and the Philippines.

Darren T. Kimura, President and CEO of Sopogy said, “Given the quality and quantity of companies vying for this title, we are really honored to have been selected as the APEC Business Innovation winner for Honolulu.”

Sopogy’s patented MicroCSP technology uses mirrors and optics to intensify the heat from the sun creating thermal energy.  Thermal energy is the fuel for efficient, renewable power generation, air conditioning, and process heat.  Sopogy’s collectors are about one-third the size of a traditional solar parabolic trough systems and can generate 30% more energy than fixed-mounted PV panels.  Sopogy’s proprietary thermal storage system stabilizes volatile production when cloudy and prolongs production after sunset.

PBN: APEC Host Committee names Showcase finalists

August 15, 2011

Pacific Business News – by Linda Chiem , Pacific Business News

Date: Tuesday, August 9, 2011, 2:19pm HST

Thirty-five Hawaii businesses have made the final cut for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation 2011 Hawaii Business Innovation Showcase — a business recognition program the Hawaii Host Committee launched to promote local businesses during the APEC Leaders’ Week meetings Honolulu will host in November.

Most of the businesses are at the forefront of Hawaii’s burgeoning technology and renewable energy sectors, which falls right in line with the U.S. goal of promoting “green growth” at the APEC meetings.

In May, the APEC Hawaii Host Committee, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii and the four counties, established the showcase to provide what it described as an unprecedented opportunity for businesses registered in the state to showcase innovation in products and services to an international audience during the APEC 2011 Leaders’ Week, which takes place Nov. 7-13.

Of the 35 finalists, one winner from each county and one overall statewide winner will be selected Sept. 6.

The winners will get top billing and exposure at key venues and events during APEC Leaders’ Week — an enviable prize for any local business since so much of Hawaii’s success from hosting APEC rides on the exposure and publicity it generates for the entire state. For more information, click here.
