Orison was selected as a HIVE 50 Innovator for 2017 by Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential, commercial design and construction industries. This honor was recognized at the HIVE conference, short for Housing Innovation, Vision & Economics, at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown December 6-7, 2017, and featured in the December issue of BUILDER magazine.
“The future of housing is being created through inspired innovation,” said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. “The HIVE 50 honorees are examples of true innovation that comes from collaboration and a connection to the best of thought leadership in other industries. We are honored to highlight the contributions of these innovators at HIVE and look forward to seeing what they create in the future.”
The HIVE 50 are drawn from the top people, products and processes that are leading the charge to inspire creativity, higher performance, and innovation in housing. This year’s honorees were separated into five categories – building technology, capital, design, intel and strategy.
“Orison is honored to be recognized for transforming the housing conversation,” said Eric Clifton, founder & CEO of Orison. “We believe our simplified business model will be a disrupter and market advantage for land developers and production builders. Our home battery system is the first all-in-one, self-install appliance that allows developers to create enhanced renewable energy communities without being constrained by utilities, permits or regulatory challenges. While Orison is low cost, its greatest propositions are its scalability, ease of use, and indoor design that serves all consumer groups, from low-income housing to high-density housing as well as single-family homes.”
HIVE is the curtain call to the cast of innovators who will shape housing today and tomorrow.
