Sesame Solar Named One of the 2022 SEAL Sustainable Innovation Award Winners
Jackson, Michigan (December 13, 2022) - Sesame Solar announced today that it was selected as a winner of the 2022 SEAL Sustainable Innovation Award. The SEAL Awards recognize companies across the globe that make measurable contributions to sustainability and develop innovative initiatives that represent game-changing ideas that bring us to a more sustainable future.
Sesame Solar was recognized for creating the world's first 100% renewably-powered Mobile Nanogrid for Emergency Response. The Nanogrids are powered by solar power, lithium Ferro-phosphate batteries, and green hydrogen – including a hydrogen fuel cell, electrolyzers, and solid-state storage tanks – that contains a 5G mesh network, water filtration, an interior/exterior workspace, and Level 2 electric vehicle charging to deliver weeks of autonomy in providing mobile, reliable and renewable energy to communities impacted by disaster.
"Being honored with the SEAL Sustainable Innovation Award Winner for 2022 is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team,” said Lauren Flanagan, CEO and Co-Founder of Sesame Solar. “At Sesame Solar, we are committed to developing clean energy solutions that not only benefit the environment but also provide reliable power to communities around the world. We are excited to continue driving positive change through sustainable innovation."
The SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement and Leadership) Awards recognize organizations dedicated to making progress on environmental and sustainability issues. SEAL Award winners are determined by a holistic methodology that measures applicants against established benchmark metrics that demonstrate impact and progress towards a healthy planet and a sustainable future. Environmental Award Winners must meet or exceed established baseline and comparative benchmarks.

“Companies have a unique opportunity and responsibility to drive environmental progress where politics cannot. Our corporate sustainability awards celebrate organizations that embrace the responsibility to effect positive change,” said SEAL Awards’ Founder Matt Harney. “Most business sustainability initiatives are unglamorous and invisible to the general public despite having significant positive impacts – we hope our awards bring some much-needed recognition to both the activities and the leaders behind them.”
