Sunfire, a developer of high-temperature fuel cells, electrolysers and a pioneer in the fields of Power-to-Liquids and Power-to-Gas, today announced it was named in the prestigious http://www.cleantech.com/indexes/global-cleantech-100/2015-global-cleantech-100/, produced byhttp://www.cleantech.com/indexes/global-cleantech-100/2015-global-cleantech-100/, whose mission is to connect corporates to sustainable innovation through its http://www.i3connect.com/ and global events.
The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas in cleantech. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solvetomorrow’s clean technology challenges, Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make the most significant market impact.
“To be named in the Global Cleantech 100 means a lot to us. It shows that it really pays off to break new grounds. We are happy that our innovative technology appeals to both customers and investors. We are proud to contribute to the global energy transition,” said Carl Berninghausen, CEO of sunfire.
This list is collated by combining proprietary Cleantech Group research data, with weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations, and specific inputs from a global 100-person Expert Panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
This year, a record number of nominations were received: 6,900 distinct companies from 60 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 323 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel, resulting in a finalized list of 100 companies from 17 countries.
The 100-member expert panel was drawn equally from leading financial investors and representatives of multi-national corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting across Asia, Europe, and North America. The composition of the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community, from pioneers and leaders to veterans and new entrants. The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem.
“The Global Cleantech 100 provides us with insight into the collective opinion of key market players on which megatrends and innovation companies are most likely to have a significant impact in the next 5-10 years,” said Michele Parad, Senior Manager at Cleantech Group and lead author of the Global Cleantech 100 Report. “Now in its 7th year, the Global Cleantech 100 program reveals which themes are staying relevant and which sectors are taking center stage.”
