Always On Going Green has announced their list of who they think are the most promising green sector companies in the East. These types of lists are great resources for identifying potential employers, so if you get a chance, check out the Going Green East Top 50. They evaluated several hundred private cleantech companies in the region, paying special attention to companies that appear likely to thrive in spite of tight credit and cheap energy.
Other variables evaluated in include: the disruptive potential of the company’s technology combined with its likely feasibility; the strength of the management team; credibility of the investors; how big a market is there for the innovation; the clarity of the company’s mission; how close is the company to bringing this innovation to market; and the strength of its claim to belong to the cleantech revolution.
The winners include eight companies in solar energy, eight in resource recovery, seven in energy efficiency category, six in energy storage, five in building materials, five in nanotech, four in biofuel, and at least one in every other category. The top winner, GreatPoint Energy is commercializing a technology that converts raw coal into natural gas.
