Aiming to creating new markets and unlocking potential across the developing world through access to energy and other modern utilities, BBOXX has installed more than 150,000 solar home systems with a strong presence in Rwanda, Kenya, Togo and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Global Cleantech 100 is an annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private, independent, for-profit companies best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges. This year marks the 10th edition of the list.

Mansoor Hamayun, CEO and co-founder of BBOXX, said, “Energy access is a global problem and we have bold ambitions to accelerate our global footprint to bring clean, reliable and affordable electricity and value-added services to these underserved communities.”

The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 87-member expert panel comprised of leading investors and experts from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting.

“Our tenth edition is dominated by innovations for the future of food and mobility, and a decentralised and digitised future not only for energy but for the industrial world more generally,” said Richard Youngman, CEO at Cleantech Group.

“This is a far cry from the dominance of hardware, solar and biofuels in the inaugural Global Cleantech 100 in 2009,” Youngman added.
