New York, March 25, 2019 – Ten innovative companies that are revolutionizing the energy, transport, and industrial sectors have been named as the 2019 New Energy Pioneers by BloombergNEF (BNEF). The winners are pursuing new opportunities in areas as diverse as EV charging, industrial digitalization, and innovative manufacturing processes. The 2019 New Energy Pioneers have been unveiled today at the BNEF Summit in New York.
BNEF’s New Energy Pioneers recognize ground-breaking companies that are fueling the transition to a lower carbon economy and highlighting new ideas for business models, technologies, market structures and commercial opportunities.
An independent panel of industry experts, assisted by BNEF’s analysts and technology specialists, selected the ten winners from more than 185 applicants from 35 countries around the world. Each candidate was assessed against three criteria: the potential to scale the opportunity and have global impact; the level of innovation of the technology or business model and the novelty it brings to the market; and momentum by showcasing substantive progress in the form of strong commercial partnerships, the distribution channels in place and sales growth.
