Six companies nominated for WWFs Dutch Cleantech Award 2012

WWFs Dutch Cleantech Award 2012 will be awarded on December 11, to the most promising cleantech company during the Clean Tech Symposium in Rotterdam. Six companies that make an important contribution to a 100% renewable energy supply have been nominated.

The following companies have been nominated by an independent jury: Hygear, Locamation, SkyNRG, HeatMatrix, Tempress and A. de Jong Group. “The variation in the six nominated companies illustrates the breadth and potency of the cleantech sector. From technological innovation to ICT or chain innovation, from energy savings to smart grids and solar energy to sustainable biofuels,” said jury chairman and CEO of Siemens Netherlands Ab van der Touw as the nominees were announced.

The purpose of the award is to stimulate the cleantech sector in Holland so solutions can grow and reduce emissions worldwide. At present Holland is in 21st place worldwide. Denmark, China and Germany lead the top 25 according to WWF in the Clean Economy, Living Planet report.

“The Dutch cleantech sector already has a good foundation. To get into the top ten worldwide there is a need for stable regulations, adequate funding and a strong domestic market. Only then can the sector take off and enable the Netherlands to reach the top 10,” says WWF Director Johan van de Gronden. Cleantech is seen as one of the drivers of a green economy in both the government manifesto and in a recommendation of the Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER) on energy and economy cleantech. “Such support is very useful for this sector. We are on the right track. ”

The Cleantech Star Award 2012 is organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), together with employers organisation FME-CWM and energy company Eneco. The nominees will present themselves on the WWF Cleantech Symposium which will be held on December 11 at Drijvend Paviljoen in Rotterdam.
