E2America Selects DPR Group to Direct National Public Relations Campaign

Dara O'NeillGermantown, Md. and Cary, N.C. – April 6, 2011– DPR Group Inc. (www.dprgroup.com), a full-service agency that provides public relations and marketing support services to a broad range of technology companies, announced today that Efficient Energy America (E2America) Inc. has selected the firm to manage its national public relations campaign. E2America (www.e2america.com) is an emerging leader in intelligent HVAC control, optimization and real-time reporting systems.

DPR Group is working with E2America to develop and execute publicity initiatives that support an aggressive launch of the company’s energy efficiency technology, which is designed to lower energy costs for commercial consumers.

Dara O’Neill, CEO, E2America, said, “After researching a variety of public relations agencies, we chose DPR Group based on its successful track record of delivering highly effective public relations programs that bring rapid-growth companies to the forefront of their industries. We look forward to working in collaboration with DPR Group to help position E2America as a green technology leader for commercial industry.”

E2America’s intelligent HVAC control, optimization and real-time reporting systems go far beyond traditional energy management systems to reduce electricity costs, usage and carbon emissions for commercial enterprises. The only fully automated, wireless, retrofit technology to deliver cash-positive results from day-one and ROI within 24 months, E2America systems are installed in leading restaurant and retail chains, as well as other commercial buildings across the United States. The E2America intelligent Smart Grid efficiency technology reduces energy consumption (kWh) and demand (kW) of each facility through management of the HVAC equipment, which draws the heaviest electrical loads. Each solution is custom designed and built for that particular application; no electricians are needed for installation/maintenance, and no training is required. Because the systems are entirely wireless, installation takes only hours. Strategic partners include Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, Progress Energy, Duke Energy and GreenCo Solutions, Inc. The company is headquartered in North Carolina.

“We are excited to partner with E2America, a company that offers cost-effective, practical, green technologies for the commercial sector,” said Dan Demaree, president & CEO, DPR Group. “It is especially rewarding to help promote a clean technology that has long-term benefits for our society.”

At this point in time, Hermes has a well-established brand throughout Europe, but the company does not have the same level of name recognition in North America. So we decided to partner with DPR Group to let U.S. retailers know about the full range of e-commerce services Hermes offers for e-businesses and international expansion. DPR Group did a fantastic job for Hermes at the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE), promoting attendance at our sessions and scheduling media interviews before and after. We’ve never had as much press coverage at any U.S. event before. I highly recommend DPR Group to foreign companies seeking to launch their products and services in U.S. markets.
