This is the third year the Cleantech Group, an industry market intelligence company which provides Fortune 1000 global corporations, among others, with industry analysis about cleantech innovation, has presented the Global Cleantech 100, a list of the top 100 private companies in clean technology.
This year Israel has been well represented by eight companies, four of which are based in Israel and four which were founded by Israelis but with operations in the United States.
The awards were split into three regions (North America, Europe and Israel, and Asia Pacific), with 16 countries providing entrants.
Out of three regions Israel was represented in the top 10 in both North America, with BrightSource Energy, a developer of solar thermal power systems, winning the Continued Excellence award for being the highest ranked company on the list for the past three years, and in the Europe and Israel region with TaKaDu which was awarded with the highest rating in the region.
