Company name Description

BrightSpace Technologies BrightSpace Technologies targets #1 demand of the top energy consumer: Lighting in Commercial Buildings. Instead of PV & LED’s (only 5% aggregate efficiency!), we utilize fiber-optic cables to route the sunlight within the structure, with retrofit ‘Hybrid’ luminaries that share electric LED’s to compensate when solar resources diminish. IR is stripped off to reduce heat-gain while uniquely driving special CPV cells, to simultaneously “co-generate” electricity while daylighting interiors.
Campuscene

Adding these new metrics to the admissions process will reduce recruitment costs, produce better outcomes, and save colleges millions of dollars per year through reduced student attrition.
