Xconomy, a business and technology publication, recently compiled a list of Washington’s clean technology and alternative energy companies.
Luke Timmerman, the national biotechnology editor for Xconomy, writes that they “defined the alternative energy industry broadly, including innovative developers of biofuels, solar power, wind, and energy storage, as well as technologies for hybrid vehicles and smart-grid applications and software for energy efficiency and conservation.”
WTC client companies on the list include 3TIER, Boeing, EnerG2, InnovaTek, Microsoft, and Neah Power Systems. Several speakers at Washington’s Innovation Summit 2009 come from companies on the list (Blue Marble Energy, General Biodiesel, PACCAR, and Prometheus Energy).
Xconomy compiled the list of more than 80 Washington companies with the assistance of several organizations and people: The Washington state Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development; the Washington Clean Technology Alliance; Rick LeFaivre of OVP Venture Partners; Eric Gertsman of the University of Washington; Jane Shaw of the Canadian Consulate’s office in Seattle; Pernick of Clean Edge; Gary Spanner of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, WA; and Kim Zentz of Sirti in Spokane, WA.
