Selected through a thorough research process by sector experts and investors, the Cleantech 100 companies provide sustainable solutions for a wide-ranging sectors from Energy & Power to Agriculture & Food, Materials & Chemicals, Resources & Environment, and Transportation & Logistics.
Energy & Power remained the largest in terms of recorded deals and money invested, with 42 companies on the list. CorPower Ocean is the first wave energy company to make it on the list for over a decade.
Patrik Möller, CEO of CorPower Ocean said: ‘This is a recognition of wave energy having reached an inflection point where commercial traction is picking up thanks to technological breakthroughs that have addressed the key challenges that previously held back commercial adoption – storm survivability and efficient power generation in regular ocean conditions.
Richard Youngman, CEO of Cleantech Group, said: ‘Congratulations on becoming the first wave company in Cleantech Group’s Global Cleantech 100, for more than 12 years. Patrik Möller and CorPower Ocean, you are changing minds of people who likely walked away and wrote off wave power in the early 2010’s. Keep up the good work!’
