Inaugural List Recognises the Top Private Companies in Clean Technology in the Asia Pacific Region
SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, September 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Wattwatchers, the Australian-based digital energy company, today announced it has been named to the 2018 APAC 25 List, produced by Cleantech Group (CTG) whose research and events services keep its audiences and clients in touch with emerging trends, leading innovation companies and all key players in sustainable innovation.
The APAC 25 is a new sister list of the Global Cleantech 100 program, launched this year and made possible by the support of Enterprise Singapore.
Like its parent program the Global Cleantech 100, the APAC 25 seeks to provide a reading of which private and independent companies, and types of sustainable innovation companies, are catching the attention of those in the market, and which they believe are most likely to have significant impact in a 5-10-year time frame.
CTG put together the list of 25 companies through a combination of APAC-related inputs from the annual Global Cleantech 100 process (as described on its methodology page) with the specific inputs asked of an APAC 25 expert panel. Those companies where, based on the inputs provided, CTG can detect the strongest patterns of agreement across all the input points will do best under the scoring methodology.
“The Wattwatchers team is very excited about this external recognition of our company,” said Wattwatchers CEO Gavin Dietz. ‘Because the list is constructed by independent selection and expert evaluation, rather than being one of those awards or rankings that you self-nominate for, we see the new APAC 25 as being especially valuable as an indicator of how Wattwatchers is progressing in Australia and internationally.
‘It’s a great validation of our work to enable Grid 2.0 – the new digital, distributed and demand-response era for electricity systems – with circuit-level monitoring and control in real-time through the cloud. We also are delighted to see other Australian technology companies recognised on the list – smart grid leader GreenSync, second-life energy storage start-up Relectrify, and water and wastewater innovator BioGill – and we congratulate all of the new APAC 25 list companies.’
Members of the APAC 25 expert panel play an important role in how the list comes together. Each provides a minimum of three (maximum of nine) nominations, no more than a third of which can be portfolio companies (in the case of investors). Expert panelists can weight their nominations to indicate their relative strength, and all nominations are blind (no expert sees any of the other panelists’ nominations). These nominations are then combined with the outcomes from the Global Cleantech 100 process, which itself benefits from thousands of data points.
“We are excited to have produced this new sister list and to shine a spotlight on the innovation activity happening in the Asia Pacific region,” said Richard Youngman, CEO of Cleantech Group. “With the globalisation of innovation – where solutions are emerging from, where demand is, and who is providing the capital for our ecosystem – now, more than ever is the right time to do this.”
