The release of the Global Cleantech 100, a report produced every year by the Cleantech Group, is one of the key annual events in the cleantech sector. It features 100 of the most promising innovations, technologies and companies trying to build a more sustainable world, in the following categories: Energy & Power; Resources & Environment; Transportation  & Logistics;  Agriculture & Food; Enabling Technologies; Materials & Chemicals.

This year’s edition, named “From Chaos to Transformation: The Companies and Themes Delivering Sustainable Innovation”, outlines some of the biggest megatrends in the cleantech sector, such as digitization, electrification, resource efficiency and the ever-increasing volumes of deployed renewable energy. Of course, it also reflects on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, noting that despite the chaos, this crisis might lead to a wake up from governments and citizens.

“2020 may yet prove to be the year which created the conditions that brought us together and got us focused harder on achieving true transformations” says Richard Youngman, CEO of the Cleantech Group.

The Solar Impulse Foundation is proud to count 13 labelled Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions among the Global Cleantech 100. Below, you will find a list of these solutions.

Our two organizations are strongly committed to accelerating the adoption of clean technologies, as we are convinced that they present an opportunity to tackle the environmental crisis while spurring sustainable growth and creating jobs.

At a time when some people feel despair about the climate crisis, this list of 100 brilliant innovations is proof that there is great hope that we can change the course of action and avoid a climate catastrophe. What we urgently need is courage and ambition from policy-makers, investors, and corporates to make bold commitments and to act in favor of clean technologies. As Richard Youngman puts it, “Let’s get to work, tackling the climate crisis together”.
