Hifi Engineering is Named in the 2014 Global Cleantech 100’s Ones to Watch List - List Recognizes Upcoming Private Companies in Clean Technology
CALGARY, AB – November 6, 2014: Hifi Engineering Inc., a developer of leading edge fiber optic sensing technologies primarily used to monitor gas and fluid flow in pipelines and oil and gas wells, today announced it was named in the 2014 Global Cleantech 100’s Ones to Watch list, produced by Cleantech Group, whose mission is to connect corporates to sustainable innovation through the i3 market intelligence platform, expert consulting services, and global events. The inaugural Ones to Watch list seeks to highlight a group of upcoming companies that are catching the eye of leading players in the market. They are companies who did not quite have enough market support to make the 2014 Global Cleantech 100 list itself, who have never been on a previous Global Cleantech 100 list, but who clearly carry pockets of strong support among key corporations, investors, and Cleantech Group analysts within the Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel. The Expert Panel consists of an influential group of 84 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. “Recognition by Cleantech Group is a great honour, and validation that the technology we have commercialized is key component of sustainable innovation in the energy industry” said Steven Koles, President & CEO of Hifi. “We are excited to release a second list under the Global Cleantech 100 program, to recognise 60 other rising stars that, from the process we ran, we can see are catching the attention of some important players in the market,” said Richard Youngman, Cleantech Group’s Managing Director, Europe & Asia and creator of the Global Cleantech 100 program. “We look forward to following their progress, and hopefully seeing some of them graduate to future editions of the Global Cleantech 100.” This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 5,995 distinct companies from 60 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 327 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel, resulting in the inaugural Ones to Watch 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.
