AutoGrid Lands on Global Cleantech 100 List for 5th Consecutive Year
Cleantech Group recognizes AutoGrid as one of world’s top 100 cleantech companies
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22, 2018 – For the fifth consecutive year, AutoGrid, the leading provider of flexibility management software for the energy industry, has won recognition as one of the top 100 clean technology companies in the world.
The Cleantech Group announced its 2018 Global Cleantech 100 list during the 16th annual Cleantech Forum in San Francisco on Jan. 22.
“At AutoGrid, we’re working to speed the world’s transition to a clean, affordable and reliable energy system,” said Amit Narayan, AutoGrid CEO. “We’re honored to be recognized once again by the Global Cleantech 100 as a company that is changing how the world makes, uses and distributes energy.”
The Global Cleantech 100 annually takes the pulse of the global innovation community’s views on which companies, and which types of companies, are most likely to have “a big commercial impact” in the next five to 10 years, according to the Cleantech Group. “The companies represent the most innovative and promising ideas in cleantech and that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges,” the organization says.
AutoGrid develops flexibility management software that allows utilities, electricity retailers, energy service providers and owners of large asset portfolios to monitor, predict, optimize, aggregate and control flexible capacity from distributed energy resources—such as energy storage batteries, solar panels, small generators and smart thermostats—on a large-scale basis and in real time.
AutoGrid first appeared on the Global Cleantech 100 list in 2013 and has achieved recognition in each subsequent year that the awards have been made. This year, the company was selected from among a record 12,300 companies from 61 countries. The Global Cleantech 100 list is assembled by combining proprietary CTG 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. 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.
