Today in Cleantech

The World Economic Forum has announced the winners of its Technology Pioneers contest, and for the first time, clean tech companies have won an equal number of spots alongside traditionally dominant IT companies. The list of green winners does include many that cross the boundaries of IT — take water infrastructure monitoring service provider TaKadu, networked lighting startup Digital Lumenshome energy efficiency specialist OPOWER, long-range smart grid wireless provider On-Ramp Wireless, and well-connected home energy management startup Tendril. But Thursday’s winners also included green cement manufacturer Novacem, vehicle engine efficiency booster Transonic Combustion, sewage-to-fertilizer waste recovery startup Ostara, and Nigerian renewable energy developer Quintas Renewable Energy Solutions, among others.
