MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – September 20, 2011 – Cogenra Solar™, a provider of distributed solar cogeneration systems and renewable energy service solutions, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Global 200 winners. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Global 200 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Cogenra Solar was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
Cogenra Solar and the GoingGreen Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s GoingGreen Silicon Valley event on September 27th, 2011, at San Francisco City Hall in San Francisco, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on the most promising emerging green technologies and new entrepreneurial opportunities.
“Picking this year’s GoingGoing Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great greentech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we’ve seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming.”
The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international greentech companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and greentech industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
Cogenra’s innovative solar cogeneration architecture combines proven photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal technologies in a low-cost and scalable design that simultaneously maximizes energy harvest and optimizes economic benefits. The hybrid solar solution produces five times the energy, three times the greenhouse gas reduction and twice the savings of traditional PV. Available in ground mount and rooftop options, Cogenra’s solution is being rapidly adopted into a variety of industries such as the military, food and beverage, hospitality, healthcare and multi-tenant housing including college dormitories, corporate campuses and assisted living facilities.
