Out of over 13,000 inno­va­tors from over 90 coun­tries, Kiwigrid secures a place in the 2019 Glob­al Clean­tech 100 again

Kiwigrid, the Ger­man-based IoT com­pa­ny that aims to help busi­ness­es suc­ceed in a new ener­gy and mobil­i­ty world, was named 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.

As the pace­mak­er of the dig­i­tal, decen­tral­ized ener­gy world, we con­nect very dif­fer­ent indus­tries in our open ecosys­tem. This is absolute­ly vital in order to keep pace with the rapid devel­op­ment towards renew­able ener­gies, elec­tro­mo­bil­i­ty and the decar­bon­i­sa­tion of indus­try. We are proud to be part of the pres­ti­gious Clean­tech 100 list for the third time in a row ‚” says Matthias Her­tel, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Kiwigrid.

The list com­bines Clean­tech Group’s research data with qual­i­ta­tive judge­ments 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.
