Agilyx, Bridgelux & Purfresh continue to be named three of the most promising private cleantech companies & newer addition ENBALA continues its industry recognition
VANCOUVER, BC – Today, Chrysalix Energy Venture Capital, the world’s most active cleantech venture capital firm, announced that four of its portfolio companies – Agilyx, Bridgelux, ENBALA Power Networks, and Purfresh – have made the Cleantech Group’s 2012 Global Cleantech 100 list acknowledging the most promising private cleantech companies. The annual list recognizes early-stage organizations from around the world expected to make the biggest impact on clean technology over the next five to ten years.
“This year’s Global Cleantech 100 list once again shows multi-year winners, Agilyx, Bridgelux, and Purfresh, continue to lead the industry. We’re also pleased to see our relevant newcomer, ENBALA, make the list for the first time after solidifying significant commercial contracts for its unique Smart Grid platform in the past year,” said Wal van Lierop, President & CEO of Chrysalix.
“We’re at an exciting point within the industry, one where cleantech has matured and is officially becoming part of the mainstream energy provision. This in part due to Global Cleantech 100 companies like these driving down the cost curves and making cleantech increasingly more competitive with mainstream energy solutions. Then there’s the ongoing interest and action from the Fortune 500 companies who are more than ever looking to external innovation for revenue growth and competitive advantage. It is exciting innovators like the Global Cleantech 100 that continue to move the dial and advance cleantech on the whole. We congratulate each of our honoured companies in addition to EnOcean from the portfolio of our European partners, Chrysalix SET, who also made the top 100 list.”
Bridgelux and Purfresh are part of Chrysalix’ CELP II Fund and both Agilyx and ENBALA are included within the Firm’s more recent CELP III Fund. For further details on each company, please visit Chrysalix’ “Portfolio” Web page at http://www.chrysalix.com/portfolio.
