KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, March 18, 2024 — HCI Energy Inc.a provider of renewable, hybrid power and smart back-up power for telecom, broadband, and public safety applications — was honored with a top industry innovation award judged by the World Bank, Red Cross and FEMA at the Disasters Expo USA in Miami on March 7, 2024. As one of five nominees in the Cost-Effective Mitigation Product category, HCI Energy was recognized for providing accessible and advantageous solutions that help minimize the disruptive effect of natural disasters for communities and businesses.

The Disasters Industry Awards celebrates the tools, products, innovations and services that have made an outstanding impact in the industry over the past 12 months. In HCI Energy’s category, the award committee evaluated products that have the potential to transform the way communities view mitigation of their homes and businesses against the destructive power of nature. The judging panel distinguished HCI Energy for providing integrated renewable solutions that not only help post-disaster but can be leveraged as a preventative solution and as part of a recovery fleet.  

“In an emergency or natural disaster, power facilitates the critical lifelines for response and recovery teams and for communities. Unfortunately, power is often unavailable or the first thing to go in these situations,” Leo Morton, HCI Energy Chairman of the Board said. “HCI Energy delivers a rapidly deployed, cost-effective solution to this dilemma with hybrid, turnkey, renewable power delivered anywhere. We are honored to receive this award in recognition of HCI Energy’s positive impact on response and recovery efforts, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) initiatives, and communities affected by disaster.”
