LONDON, April 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovator Capital, the London based specialist cleantech investment bank, announced today the dates for CleanEquity Monaco 2012. The invitation only, next generation cleantech event will be held on 29th & 30th March 2012.
Mungo Park, Innovator's Chairman said, "We raised the bar once again in 2011 with the quality of the technology companies and delegates attending; it was clearly apparent to those that attended in previous years. PR Newswire's contribution to raising brand awareness for the companies was invaluable. Also noticeable was the increase in the number of delegates interested in licensing or finding technologies for deployment in their respective countries such as China, India and the UAE; the companies were presented with clear alternatives to cash investors."
Siddharth Dixit of Sunon Energy, New Delhi, said, "Innovator's intelligence base is vast. Any country in the process of deciding on a particular technology would do well to consult with them. We only get one chance to get it right."
His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco presented the awards for excellence.
The Research award went to HaloIPT, a wireless charging technology for electric vehicles. The runner up was the vertical farming company, Aero Farms.
The Development award went to Enecsys, a next generation micro-inverter technology for the solar industry. The runners up were Ecotemis and NGenTec.
