Quantum Dot Leader Recognized for Clean Technology Innovation
SAN FRANCISCO, January 26, 2016: QD Vision, the global leader in quantum dot display technology, today announced it was named to the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 Under the Radar list, produced by Cleantech Group.
This inaugural list puts the spotlight on companies that are flying “under the radar,” but who have strongly caught the interest of the Global Cleantech 100 Expert Panelists. The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem. This year, a record number of nominations were received: 6,900 distinct companies from 60 countries.
“To be recognized as a cleantech leader among such a large group of qualified nominations is a true honor, and a testament to QD Vision’s commitment to creating energy-efficient products that are aligned with the principles of responsible development,” said Mustafa Ozgen, CEO of QD Vision. “Our quantum dot technology improves performance while reducing energy consumption and environmental waste, and it is gratifying to be recognized for our dedication to this cause.”
Nominated companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 323 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s Expert Panel, resulting in the Under the Radar list, in addition to the annual Global Cleantech 100 list. To qualify for both lists, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
