Albeo Technologies Inc., a leader in solid state lighting and tenth fastest growing manufacturing company in the US, announced today it was named Best of Energy Efficiency/Green Building by the Global Cleantech Cluster Association http://www.globalcleantech.org. Winning the GCCA Later Stage Award for Energy Efficiency/Green Building demonstrates Albeo’s significant success in the growing cleantech industry and validates their leadership in the Energy Efficiency/Green Building sector. Albeo was nominated for the GCCA Later Stage Award by GCCA Member Cluster, Colorado Cleantech Industrial Association http://www.coloradocleantech.com in May 2011 for its rapid growth, superior technology, industry leading installations, and high value job creation.
“Our Top 10 winners are truly the best in class and companies to watch,” says Ben Taube, Chairman of the GCCA. “In each category, these companies are making both broad strides in their global industries as well as working closely with their regional cleantech clusters to build sustainable green economies and jobs. We are thrilled to name them the GCCA Global Top 10 for 2011.”
“Albeo is honored to win the GCCA award for the highly competitive Energy Efficiency/ Green Building category. Having installed the three largest general LED lighting projects in the United States, totaling over 1.6 million sq. ft., we have clearly demonstrated the value of Albeo’s LED lighting technology” said Jeff Bisberg, Albeo Technologies CEO. “Our newest H-Series LED high bay offers the widest range of light levels available at efficiencies that are higher than fluorescent and promises to be the leading high bay solution in the market.”
The GCCA Later Stage Award Top 10 winners were selected from an original pool of 4000 eligible companies represented by the GCCA’s 33 member clusters. Each cluster conducted internal evaluations to nominate up to 10 companies in the 10 award categories. In total, these member clusters nominated 185 companies for the 2011 Later Stage Award. That number was later narrowed to the Global Top 30 semi-finalists and to the final Top 10 winners. Head Judge Dr. Peter Adriaens of the University of Michigan and CleanTech Acceleration Partners lead the evaluation and judging process along with 28 leading venture capital investors and cleantech serial entrepreneurs http://www.globalcleantech.org/awards/judges/.
