AMEE has been named one of the 2010 Global Cleantech 100, a recognition granted to the clean tech innovators regarded by industry experts as most likely to have a significant market impact over the next five to ten years.
The Global Cleantech 100, a joint effort of The Cleantech Group and The Guardian, cited AMEE’s definitive carbon data platform, which allows companies, governments, and individuals to model, measure, and reduce their environmental footprint. The AMEE platform incorporates a wide array of independently verified emissions factors and measurement methodologies to ensure that carbon footprint calculations are are accurate, complete, and fully compliant.
The award reflects the consensus view of hundreds of industry experts. This year, over 4,616 companies were nominated. The award committee whittled this initial group to a shortlist of 218 innovators. A panel of 60 industry experts then voted to identify the 100 pathbreaking companies most likely to move markets over the coming years.
The resulting list is both global in scope and unique in the breadth of expert opinion it incorporates. 14 countries overall are represented. 57% of the companies on the list reside in North America; 37% in Europe; and 7% in Asia.
The clean tech category with the greatest number of entries on this year’s list is energy efficiency, a group which includes AMEE. The relative rise of energy efficiency over clean energy in this year’s ranking reflects an increased focus on measurement and management of resource consumption as a key strategy for reducing emissions.
