From Chaos to Transformation: Cleantech Group Announces 2021 Global Cleantech 100 list of Companies Committed to Delivering the Future and Skeleton is Honored to be Selected

Out of thousands of innovators from across the globe, Skeleton Technologies, the global technology leader in ultracapacitor energy storage in automotive, transportation, grid, and industrial applications, was named a 2021 Global Cleantech 100 Company by Cleantech Group.

Delivering solutions that will take us from climate chaos to transformation, the 100 companies on the list represent the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient future. This is the 12th edition of the widely respected annual guide. This year’s list includes innovators from 15 countries, with just over half located in the US and the rest hailing from Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. The sectors covered include: Agriculture & Food, Enabling Technologies, Energy & Power, Materials & Chemicals, Transportation & Logistics and Resources & Environment.

"It is a great recognition for us to be included again in the Global Cleantech 100 list, which proves Skeleton is one of the most promising companies fighting climate change globally. Despite the difficulties presented by COVID-19, we have been able to successfully grow our revenues three-fold for the second year in a row, showing there is backing for innovative solutions” said Taavi Madiberk, CEO and co-founder of Skeleton Technologies.

“In the past, businesses such as Nio, ChargePoint, or Proterra have been included in the Global Cleantech 100 list as well before becoming some of the world’s biggest companies. We are well on our way to leading the global transition to a carbon-neutral economy.”

The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global, 91-member Expert Panel of leading investors and executives from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the Expert Panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.

The Global Cleantech 100 program continues to be sponsored by Chubb, the world's largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company.

“We are delighted to welcome 50 companies for their first time on this year’s new Global Cleantech 100. This replacement rate speaks to the healthy maturing of this innovation ecosystem and to some specific impacts of Covid-19,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group.

“On the one hand, the 2021 list reflects the long-running mega-trends like decarbonization, digitization, electrification, and the ever-increasing volumes of deployed renewable energy. On the other, Covid-19’s impact is evident – for example, in the uptick in automation and robotics-enabled solutions, in logistics and supply chain solutions, and solutions in the food chain to prevent, reduce and repurpose food waste. Resilience is a new critical factor at play.”
