Today, Carbon Lighthouse is proud to announce that we have been named in the prestigious 2018 Global Cleantech 100, produced by Cleantech Group.
The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas impacting the future of a wide range of industries, according to the players in the market. Featuring companies that are well-positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, the Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential today to make significant market impact within a 5-10-year timeframe.
This list is collated by combining proprietary Cleantech Group research data, with weighted qualitative judgments from hundreds of nominations, and specific inputs from a global 86-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, we’re told that a record number of nominations were received: 12,300 distinct companies from 61 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 312 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel, resulting in a finalized list of 100 companies from 18 countries.
The 86-member expert panel is drawn from leading financial investors and representatives of multinational 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.
In addition to accepting this award at Cleantech Forum in San Francisco, our CEO, Brenden Millstein spoke at the event during a session on Rising Stars in front of an audience of journalists, investors, and entrepreneurs committed to advancing clean energy solutions.
