The Government Services Administration (GSA) has awarded Worcester, Mass.-based World Energy Solutions Inc. a 2008 Environmental Award for its work in providing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with green energy.

The award acknowledges the role of World Energy and its world green exchange online auction platform in helping the National Park Service secure a contract for 100% wind power to run these landmarks.

The renewable energy procurement was conducted using World Energy's leading online auction platform, on which more than 11,000 successful energy and green commodities transactions have occurred and which will soon be running America's first carbon cap and trade program - the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

"We are honored to receive the 2008 Environmental Award from the GSA," says Richard Domaleski, CEO of World Energy. "It validates our team, technology and process for delivering value to our customers across the spectrum of their energy needs. Our ongoing work securing renewable energy contracts for federal, state and commercial entities underscores that the right way to procure renewables is through auction. It also highlights that buyers benefit when they couple renewable energy purchases with traditional energy procurements."
