SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Nexant, Inc. announced today that it has again been named as one of the world's top cleantech companies by Cleantech Group, a leading global research and advisory firm focused on innovation in energy and the environment. This is the second year in a row that Cleantech has recognized Nexant as one of the world's foremost pioneers in the energy efficiency sphere.

The annual Global Cleantech 100 list is unique because it highlights the capabilities of private clean technology companies from 85 countries, focusing on those companies that key market participants believe are currently the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next five to ten years.

"We are once again very pleased to be named as one of the Global Cleantech 100 companies," said Basem Sarandah, Nexant CEO.

In addition to our leadership role managing these programs and systems infrastructure projects throughout North America, our experts work with local, regional, and global partners and agencies to support efforts to transform energy economies worldwide."

"The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our companywide mission to help corporations, investors and financiers, professional service firms, and governmental agencies connect with global cleantech innovation," said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group CEO. The Global Cleantech 100 list is derived from Cleantech Group's own data and research combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations and the viewpoints of a global panel of 75 cleantech experts. The 8,285 companies nominated this year were weighted and scored to create a short list of 236 candidates that was presented to the expert panel for evaluation, with a final round of the top 100 companies selected from 13 countries.
