For the second year running, Geli has been named in the prestigious 2017 Global 4-2017_globalcleantech100_ebadge_top100_010517Cleantech 100. The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas in cleantech. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, the Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the greatest potential to make significant market impact.

“We are honored to be included for a second time in the Global Cleantech 100 list,” said Ryan Wartena, co-founder & President of Geli. “This award is validation of Geli’s approach to providing end-to-end software solutions for the entire lifecycle of advanced energy projects that incorporate energy storage.”

Geli is pioneering an end-to-end software platform that enables project developers, equipment suppliers, and project owners to design, install, finance, and operate heterogeneous energy storage and solar-plus-storage systems using a common analysis and control suite.

This list is collated 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.

This year, a record number of nominations were received: 9,900 distinct companies from 77 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 325 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by CTG’s Expert Panel, resulting in a finalized list of 100 companies from 17 countries.

The 86-member expert panel was drawn equally from leading financial investors and representatives of multi-national corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting across Asia, Europe, and North America. The composition of the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community, from pioneers and leaders to veterans and new entrants. The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem.
