Executive Named Technology Pioneer

Richard Hansen, president and founder of Soluz, Inc., a business and technology development company, specializing in commercializing distributed micro-power for the global transition to sustainable energy, has been named a 2003 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum.

Chelmsford, Massachusetts – February 12, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The Technology Pioneers are chief executives that are developing and applying the most innovative and transformational technologies. The Forum believes that this dynamic group is at the forefront of change in a variety of technology sectors. In line with the Forum’s commitment to improving the state of the world, the Technology Pioneers program was started in 2000 to provide a new perspective on technological change. By bringing these chief executives together with scientists, academics, non-governmental organizations, and Forum members and partners, the Forum hopes to shed new light on how technology can be used to stimulate medical breakthroughs, create economic growth, and enhance global communication. Hansen participated with other Technology Pioneers at the annual World Economic Forum January 26 to 28, 2003, where he led a discussion session about the energy divide, the disparity in access to modern sources of energy and the potential for distributed micro-power for rural electrification in developing countries. “It’s a privilege to be able to share experiences within a community of global leaders and innovators,” said Hansen. “Addressing the needs of a significant portion of the world population without access to electricity will require continued innovation, collaborations, and partnerships. We’re pleased that the Soluz experience in rural energy delivery with solar photovoltaic technology was included in this event.”
