Enevate Named in the 2020 Global Cleantech 100 List of Innovators

Enevate, a pioneer in advanced silicon-dominant lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology capable of extreme fast charging for electric vehicles (EVs), was selected from among thousands of companies around the world for Cleantech Group’s 2020 Global Cleantech 100 list.

Enevate develops innovative battery technologies to accelerate adoption of electrified mobility and has a vision to enable a cleaner and more sustainable environment. Enevate enables battery-powered applications and products that are accessible and affordable to everyone. Its recently announced 4th generation XFC-Energy™ Technology for EVs will help lower CO2 emissions.

The 2020 Global Cleantech 100 is the 11th edition of the respected annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource efficient industrial future.

"We are honored to be included in this important bellwether listing as our mission is also to make a better world through development of clean technology," said Enevate CEO Robert A. Rango. "Enevate’s innovative and industry-ready solutions to charge an EV as fast as refueling a gas car will accelerate EV adoption and be a critical piece of the puzzle in creating a truly sustainable world."

The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgments from nominations and insight from a global 80-member expert panel of leading investors and executives from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players with the cleantech innovation ecosystem. The Global Cleantech 100 program is sponsored by Chubb.

"It feels right that our first list of future-defining 2020s should see a continued strengthening in the representation of truly impactful and necessary innovations to transform our diets, to enable a more renewable-heavy energy system, and to capture and utilize the vast levels of CO2 we have been freely emitting for decades," said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. "Also included in our 2020 list are some big and critical shots at solving global problems – from proving out fusion and next-gen batteries to zero carbon aviation."
