IRVINE, Calif. — Phoenix Energy Technologies proudly announced today that EnterpriseDX has received a 2017 Smart Grid Product of the Year Award from, a TMC and Crossfire Media sponsored technology media website.

EnterpriseDX (EDX) is a software-based energy management platform servicing the multi-site retail, theatre and grocery industries.
