Vancouver, BC – January 22, 2018: Awesense announced today it was named in the prestigious 2018 Global Cleantech 100, produced by CTG (Cleantech Group).

The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas impacting the future of a wide range of industries, according to players in the market. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, 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.

In addition to being one of the top 100 private companies in cleantech, Awesense was also the recipient of the “GE Innovation Award”, sponsored by GE Ventures. The GE Innovation Award is awarded to the company that best represents GE's innovation themes in advancing smart power.

“We are thrilled to be a Cleantech Global 100 company this year, and truly honoured to have received the GE Innovation Award for 2018. Our mission to optimize the distribution grid in a way that is approachable, affordable, and scalable for all utilities globally has become a reality and the industry has taken notice. We've done this by combining the latest big data, IoT and AI technologies to create data-driven recommendations for our customers - all enabled by the incredible team at Awesense. I feel as though the possibilities are endless, and we're just getting started on the possibilities on the grid of tomorrow” says Mischa Steiner, CEO.

The Global Cleantech 100 list is collated by combining proprietary CTG research data, with weighted qualitative judgments of 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, 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 CTG’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 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 ongoing mainstreaming of clean technology solutions and the rise in their strategic importance was evidenced by an unprecedented burst of recent M&A activity,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG (Cleantech Group). “For the first time, now in its 9th year, four of this year’s Global Cleantech 100 companies were acquired by multi-nationals between the striking of the final list (in September 2017) and its official release today (in January 2018). More will surely follow if this set of companies achieve even half of their anticipated impact.”
