SECTOR: Clean Technology
FUND: Michigan Growth Capital Partners I
TYPE: Growth Capital
STATUS: Realized



Relume designs, manufacturers and markets highly efficient, environmentally friendly and cost effective LED lighting products and smart grid control systems for outdoor lighting applications. The company’s products are used primarily in street and area lighting for municipalities and corporations, commercial signage, outdoor advertising, transportation and U.S. military applications.

Relume’s patented thermal management technology enables its LEDs to burn brighter, last longer and be packaged in lighting fixtures that cost less.  The company’s smart-grid technology, Sentinel™,  allows municipalities, counties and departments of transportation to network their LED-based light fixtures (including those of competitors) and incumbent lighting technologies to remotely control them to power up or dim lights across all or parts of the network, reducing energy consumption, maintenance costs and CO2 generation.

Beringea’s fund exited its investment in Relume in August 2013. The company was acquired by Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (“Revolution Lighting”) (NASDAQ: RVLT).
