October 30, 2012—Sunnyvale, CA — Enlighted Inc. today announced it was named to the prestigious 2012 Global Cleantech 100, produced by Cleantech Group, a leading global research and advisory firm focused on innovation in energy and the environment. Enlighted perfects built environments by making them responsive to the people and functions they support with leading-edge sensors, analytics, and controls.
“This is a great honor for our company. Buildings have seemed inherently inflexible because of their physical constraints. Now, we can create more responsive and adaptive environments for the people who own, manage, and occupy them,” said Tushar Dave, CEO of Enlighted. “We extract detailed, real-time information about how buildings are actually used. With these new insights, we make environments far more personalized and efficient to operate. This dramatic shift from building-centric to people-centric will continue to drive the success of Enlighted.”
A total of 8,285 companies were nominated this year from 85 countries. The list highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from all around the world, focusing on those companies which are most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years.
“The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our companywide mission to help corporations, investors and financiers, professional service firms and governmental agencies connect with global cleantech innovation” said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group CEO. “This report celebrates the best in innovation and is the industry standard on gauging where cleantech innovation is headed next.”
