Lucibel was named in the prestigious 2013 Global Cleantech 100 list, which recognizes the 100 most promising private companies in the Cleantech sector. This list was produced by a jury of 90 experts gathered by Cleantech Group, after a harsh selection among close to 6,000 companies in 60 countries. After the “2012 Most Innovative Cleantech Company in Europe” awarded by Cleantech Connect, this new awards is a new recognition of the quality of the teams and solutions from Lucibel, a company which now belongs to the most recognized LED solutions new entrants at a Global level.
Cleantech Group is a global market intelligence and consulting firm helping executives connect with innovation. The Global Cleantech 100 list is unique because it highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from all around the world, focusing on those companies which the players in the market feel are currently the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years.
Based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the market, this list is produced by a panel of 90 independent experts. This panel was drawn principally from leading financial investors and representatives of multi-national corporations, located in Asia, Europe, and North America. The composition of the expert panel is created to be broadly representative of the global cleantech community, and includes pioneers, leaders, veterans, and new entrants in cleantech. This diversity results in a list of companies that command a broad base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem.
5,864 independent and non-listed companies coming for 60 countries were nominated in 2013. 300 were short-listed on the basis of quantitative and qualitative criteria, and analyzed by the expert jury to bring it down to 100 laureates from 18 countries.
The complete list of 100 companies was revealed on October 9th at the Global Cleantech 100
Summit & Gala in Washington, D.C. Lucibel is among the list. Only 2 other companies producing LED luminaires and solutions are among the list. Lucibel is also one of the 4 French companies to be rewarded in the list.
