BBOXX, a next generation utility, was named by Cleantech Group in the prestigious 2019 Global Cleantech 100.

“Our tenth edition is dominated by innovations for the future of food and mobility, and a decentralised and digitised future not only for energy but for the industrial world more generally,said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group.

“This is a far cry from the dominance of hardware, solar and biofuels in the inaugural Global Cleantech 100 in 2009,” he added.

BBOXX has installed over 150,000 solar home systems with a strong presence in Rwanda, Kenya, Togo and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Global Cleantech 100 is an annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private, independent, for-profit companies best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges. This year marks the 10th edition of the list.

Mansoor Hamayun, CEO and Co-Founder of BBOXX said: “We are thrilled to have been recognised in the Global Cleantech 100 list. It is a testament to the way our technology and relentless focus on innovation are making a meaningful difference to people’s lives around the world.

“Energy access is a global problem, and we have bold ambitions to accelerate our global footprint to bring clean, reliable and affordable electricity and value-added services to these underserved communities.”

The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 87-member expert panel comprised of leading investors and experts 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 within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.
