This can be a daunting task in a world so dependent on foreign oil sources. But with energy costs continuing to soar at an alarming rate, Kimura knows that now is the time for everyone to go green. Kimura has been ahead of his time in many ways, establishing Energy Industries at the age of 19 while on summer break from college. Fourteen years later, the energy solutions company is on the cutting edge of renewable energy research and engineering, with 12 offices and more than 100 employees in the U.S. and Philippines.
It is this dedication to innovation, leadership and growth that has earned Energy Industries this year’s 2007 Tech Company of the Year Award by the Pacific Technology Foundation — a recognition Kimura refers to as a “massive win.”
