Großröhrsdorf, Germany, 23rd of January 2018. Skeleton Technologies, the European market leader in ultracapacitors and energy storage systems for transportation and grid applications, today announced it was named in the prestigious 2018 Global Cleantech 100, produced by CTG (Cleantech Group), whose research and events services keep its audiences and clients in touch with emerging trends, leading innovation companies and all key players in sustainable innovation.

The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas impacting the future of a wide range of industries, according to the players in the market. 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 highest potential today to make significant market impact within a 5-10-year timeframe.

“This is the third consecutive year that Skeleton has been named in the Global CleanTech 100, demonstrating not only the continuing and growing confidence towards our product portfolio from our industrial customers and investor community, but also the strength of our technology and its ability to create real differentiation in our market.

Graphene-based ultracapacitors will have a major impact on the transportation and grid segment over the next five years helping to save energy, cut costs and reduce CO2 emissions. We are incredibly proud to be included in this prestigious list and look forward to seeing our company grow and further establish itself as a leader in the cleantech space”,

said Taavi Madiberk, Skeleton Technologies CEO.

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: 12,300 distinct companies from 61 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 312 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by CTG’s Expert Panel, resulting in a finalized list of 100 companies from 18 countries.

The 86-member expert panel is drawn 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.

“The ongoing mainstreaming of clean technology solutions and the rise in their strategic importance was evidenced by an unprecedented burst of recent M&A activity,”

said Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG (Cleantech Group).

“For the first time, now in its 9th year, four of this year’s Global Cleantech 100 companies were acquired by multi-nationals between the striking of the final list (in September 2017) and its official release today (in January 2018). More will surely follow if this set of companies achieve even half of their anticipated impact.”
