SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Voltus, Inc., the leading demand response company for commercial and industrial energy consumers, was honored by Cleantech Group in the prestigious 2019 Global Cleantech 100.
The Global Cleantech 100 is an annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private, independent, for-profit companies best positioned to solve tomorrow's clean technology challenges. This year marks the 10th edition of the list.
"When we launched Voltus we envisioned taking demand response to an entirely new level for our customers with a team of world-class energy experts, technology meant to make our customer's lives easier, and a simple commercial offer that put double the cash in customer's pockets fast. The honor of this recognition goes entirely to our team's hard work and industry-leading results," said Gregg Dixon, CEO of Voltus.
The list combines Cleantech Group's research data with qualitative judgments from nominations and insight from a global 87-member expert panel comprised of leading investors and experts from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem. The list is sponsored by Chubb.
"Our tenth edition is dominated by innovations for the future of food and mobility, and a decentralized and digitized future not only for energy but for the industrial world more generally," said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. "This is a far cry from the dominance of hardware, solar, and biofuels in the inaugural Global Cleantech 100 in 2009."
The complete list of 100 companies was revealed on 28 January at the 17th annual Cleantech Forum San Francisco.
