Bowman Power Group has been included in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100 list. Published by the Cleantech Group, the list recognises innovative companies most likely to significantly impact the clean technology market.
Bowman Power Group’s Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) solution recovers waste energy from the exhaust of reciprocating engine generator sets (gensets) and converts it to free, grid quality electricity, significantly improving the energy efficiency of the genset without increasing its footprint or maintenance requirements. This increases fuel efficiency and can provide up to around 10% additional power, as well as cutting CO2 emissions.
The company’s innovative technology is proven in the field, with over 700 systems deployed worldwide, which, to date, have accumulated over 15,000,000 running hours, generated over 456GWh of free energy and prevented over 189,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. ETC technology has been adopted by leading engine OEMs, power rental companies and independent power providers (IPPs), with customers including; Aggreko, Anglian Water, Cummins and Wärtsilä.
For the second time in two years, Bowman has been named in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100 list. This year, Cleantech Group announced that a record number of nominations were received, totaling 9,900 companies from 77 countries. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s expert panel, resulting in a finalised list of 100 companies from 17 countries.
“We are thrilled to be included in the Global Cleantech 100 for the second year in a row, particularly given the huge number of nominated companies in 2016”, said Paul Dowman-Tucker, CEO. “It is a fantastic endorsement of our achievements over the last 12 months, ranging from the acquisition of four new major customers, including our landmark deal with Aggreko, to the introduction of our new ETC 1000 system, which offers the same benefits in additional power and fuel efficiency but at 40% lower cost. It is yet another vindication of the vision, self-belief and sheer hard work of all our employees over many years.”
Cleantech Group’s mission is to accelerate sustainable innovation. The company’s Global Cleantech 100 list is an annually-published list of the top 100 private innovation companies in clean technology, and features the companies best positioned to tackle future clean technology challenges.
“From day one, the purpose of the Global Cleantech 100 program was to act as our barometric read on how the many facets that contribute to the emergence and maturing of an innovation theme like cleantech (the “doing of more with less”) are changing year on year,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG (Cleantech Group). “Now in its 8th year, we see more signals this year of the ongoing mainstreaming of clean technologies, sustainability, and resource efficiency on its journey towards the point where this is just the normal way business is done.”
