Sierra Energy, a waste gasification and renewable energy company, announced today that its been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Global 200 winners, for the second year in a row.
“Picking this year’s GoingGoing Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great greentech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we’ve seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming.”
“Sierra Energy is honored to share the stage with such well financed businesses this early in our growth,” says Michael Hart, founder and president of Sierra Energy. “To date, we have been fully self financed, however this recognition couldn’t have come at a better time. Sierra Energy is currently seeking outside financing to support the construction of our first commercial facility, planned for 2012 in the Sacramento area.”
The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international greentech technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and greentech industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
Sierra Energy will be honored at AlwaysOn’s GoingGreen Silicon Valley event on September 27th, 2011, in San Francisco, CA. Hart will also be participating in Saturday’s program discussing the “Hottest Emerging Sectors in Alternative Energy”.
