Upsolar today announced its selection as a member of AlwaysOn’s GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200, a set of awards bestowed annually to companies demonstrating “game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in green technology.”
Upsolar was chosen from thousands of international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and green technology industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
"This year’s GoingGreen Global 200 displays a maturity in the green technology industry that makes it very attractive to both investors and innovators. Greentech research is maturing rapidly, and as it couples with technology innovators and investors, companies are emerging that have the ability to change the way we live our lives for the better and bring huge returns to their founders and funders,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s GoingGreen Global 200 winners are pushing the bounds of how technology can bring about change in the war on our planet’s waning resources. The strength of these companies lies in their ability to nurture innovative ideas and seen them through to successful, sustainable, and profitable businesses.”
"We are honored to be recognized – especially by a prestigious organization like AlwaysOn – for our commitment to continuous innovation,” said Zhe Jiang, CEO of Upsolar. “We look forward to pushing the envelope even further in the months and years to come as we strive to deliver the best solar products on the market while raising the bar for environmental stewardship.”
The GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s seventh annual GoingGreen Silicon Valley, November 27-28 at the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco, CA.
