Next Kraftwerke was named a 2020 Global Cleantech 100 company by Cleantech Group. The 2020 Global Cleantech 100 is the 11th edition of the annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features private, independent and for-profit companies that contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient industrial future.
“We are very happy to be named a Global Cleantech 100, already for the second time. With an ever-increasing share of renewable energy in the system, questions arise such as 'Which plant is feeding in how much electricity at a given time', 'How much electricity should it feed into the grid in order to operate more economically' and 'What happens in four hours?' This is where we have developed solutions through our Virtual Power Plant and where we want to support partners by contributing our experience of being a Virtual Power Plant operator for over ten years now,” says Hendrik Sämisch, founder and CEO of Next Kraftwerke.
The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 80-member expert panel of leading investors and executives from corporations and industrials. The Global Cleantech 100 program is sponsored by Chubb.
