26 Jan RayVio Corporation is Named in the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 Under the Radar List
List Recognizes Private Companies Gaining Traction in Clean Technology
Hayward, Calif. – January 26, 2016 – RayVio Corporation, a technology leader of Solid-State Ultraviolet (SSUV) LED solutions, today announced it was named in the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 Under the Radar list, produced by Cleantech Group, whose mission is to connect corporates to sustainable innovation through its i3 Connect platform and global events.
The inaugural Under the Radar list puts the spotlight on companies that are flying “under the radar,” but who have strongly caught the interest of a few of the Global Cleantech 100 Expert Panelists. This sister list – new to the Global Cleantech 100 programming – highlights companies whose support among the investor and corporate panelists may be small in number, but noticeably very strong in its evaluation. The Expert Panel consists of an influential group of 100 panelists who help determine the annual Global Cleantech 100 list. The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem.
“We are delighted to be nominated in recognition of bringing industry leading SSUV LED technology to the market. Customers are thrilled with our products and their performance, offering a sustainable alternative to current mercury or amalgam containing lamp based solutions,” said Dr. Robert C. Walker, CEO of RayVio. “The proven value proposition of our SSUV LED products together with the expansion of our Hayward, California based production capacity will turn 2016 into an even more exciting year!”
This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 6,900 distinct companies from 60 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 323 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel, resulting in the Under the Radar list, in addition to annual the Global Cleanteh 100 list. To qualify for the both lists, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
