The article features Windsor, Colorado-based Ice Energy, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Frank Ramirez is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, which has 35 employees. Its key investors are Second Avenue Partners and Sail/Odyssey Ventures. Ice Energy's air-conditioning system is a five- by five-foot box that creates ice at night when energy costs are low and then circulates the collected cool air through the house. The company claims its Ice Bear system reduces demand during peak hours by 95 percent. The company secured a few contracts with a number of towns, such as Victorville, California, and is making its way into the industrial and commercial sector. But Ice Energy's system still has a long way to go before mass adoption.
