List Recognizes Up-and-Coming Private Companies in Clean Technology
Aquarius Spectrum, a leading provider of cloud technology solutions for monitoring municipal water distribution networks and leak detection, today announced it was named in the 2016 Global Cleantech 100 Ones to Watch list, produced by Cleantech Group (CTG).
The GCT100 Ones to Watch list seeks to highlight a group of up and companies that are catching the eye of leading investors and corporates in the market. The companies made the top 250 in this year’s Global Cleantech 100 program and carry pockets of strong support among the GCT100’s expert panel, albeit they did not have quite enough market support to make the 8th edition of the Global Cleantech 100 list itself (which will be published on January 23, 2017). As such, these companies represent this year’s Ones to Watch.
“The Global Cleantech 100 program is our annual in-depth research exercise to identify the innovation companies leading players in the market are most excited by right now”, said Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG, “By the nature of the list, the Ones to Watch truly represent the next cadre of exciting disruptive companies.”
"Aquarius Spectrum is developing rapidly gaining a growing interest in the global water market. The company's innovative solutions enable monitoring and control of the water infrastructure for water utilities while significantly reducing their water loss which in some places in the world reaches 30-50% of the intended water for consumption", said Mr. Oded Fruchtman - CEO, Aquarius Spectrum.
This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 9,900 distinct companies from 77 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 325 companies, with these nominees reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel. The Ones to Watch list, a sister list to the annual Global Cleantech 100 list is created from the top 250 of the shortlist. To qualify for either list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
