SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — WardsAuto, a world-leading provider of automotive insights and analysis, today announced it has been honored with a Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Award in the Best Technical Content category for the in-depth article The Big Story: 48V Industry’s Next Power Play written by James M. Amend.
The article took a deep dive into the emergence of 48V by examining the regulatory drivers compelling automakers to turn to the technology, the industry’s uneven history in making a leap up from standard 12V systems, and the challenges facing its integration. The reporting also identifies key players delivering 48V systems, pulls in commentary on the technology from leading industry executives and draws on a specially commissioned study to forecast elements of its global rollout.
“We’re thrilled to be honored for our analysis of this vital topic,” said Sue Boehlke, Ground Transportation Vice President. “WardsAuto is committed to delivering business intelligence for the automotive industry, providing not just daily reporting on current news but also looking forward with analysis of major shifts that will impact everyone’s role within this global industry.”
The Jesse H. Neal Awards were created by Connectiv in 1955 to recognize and reward editorial excellence in business publications. They are named after Connectiv’s first managing director, who remained active in promoting the B2B industry throughout his life.
The Neal Awards were presented in ceremonies in New York on March 31.
