BOSTON -- (BUSINESS WIRE) – EnOcean announced it has been named in the prestigious 2010 Global Cleantech 100—produced by the Cleantech Group, providers of leading global market research, events and advisory services for the cleantech industry. The list is produced as part of the Global Cleantech 100 program run in collaboration with the Guardian News and Media and sponsored by Autodesk.

“EnOcean has become a global leader in green, energy harvesting wireless solutions, and being named a Global Cleantech 100 Company for two years in a row is indeed an honor,” said Jim O’Callaghan, president of EnOcean, Inc.

“Commercial buildings are energy gluttons that leave hideous carbon footprints. They need to be brought under control, not in 10 years, not in five years, but now. EnOcean’s batteryless, wireless sensors have already been adopted by more than 100 manufacturers and deployed in over 100,000 buildings worldwide.”

The Global Cleantech 100 highlights the most promising private clean technology companies worldwide, citing companies that are the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next five to 10 years in the eyes of the world’s cleantech experts.

A total of 4,616 nominations were received from 3,260 unique sources from 50 countries, which was ultimately winnowed down to the Global 100. The complete list of 100 companies will be unveiled today at Cleantech Forum New York.

“The second Global Cleantech 100 shines a spotlight on which companies and which technology areas the global innovation community is currently most excited about, from a commercial standpoint,” said Richard Youngman, MD, Europe & VP, Global Research at Cleantech Group. “There have been significant changes since 2009: more Asian companies and less renewable energy generation companies attest to the growing diversification of cleantech innovation. Cleantech is a broader phenomenon than just clean energy. The wider issues of resource scarcity are starting to gain attention and traction.”
