Sunpartner Technologies, inventor of the transparent, invisible solar component Wysips®, has just been named one of the Top 100 companies in clean tech for the second time. This award will be presented at the CleanTech Forum in San Francisco on January 23-25, 2017.
This Forum is the annual gathering of the international cleantech community. Its Global CleanTech Top 100 identifies innovative, sustainable companies that will have the most significant impact in the coming years. The list includes 17 categories such as energy efficiency, biofuels, and biochemicals, and Sunpartner Technologies was named in the 2016 Energy Efficiency category.
Recognition of Sunpartner’s Innovation Strategy for a More Sustainable World
This honor acknowledges Sunpartner’s achievements as it has grown successfully from a tech start-up to a manufacturing company with an entire portfolio of high-tech solutions for local energy production, tailored to each market. This distinction confirms the company’s strategy, which, together with its Wysips® technologies, helps solve new energy needs for the building, consumer electronics (wearables, smartphones and connected devices), and transport markets. Wysips® components transform any surface into a solar panel, able to generate its own off-the-grid energy while remaining design neutral.
