Eniram Limited, the fast-growinginnish provider of energy management technology and data analytic services to the shipping industry, today announced that it had been named by Cleantech Group (CTG), developer of the i3 market intelligence platform, as one of CTG’s five picks as a European Cleantech Company of the Decade. This one-off award was made in connection with the 10th anniversary Cleantech Forum Europe, held in Stockholm this year. The award was made in Stockholm’s City Hall, the venue of the annual Nobel Prize ceremony.
“We are excited to be receiving this prestigious award,” commented Mr Henrik Dahl, Eniram CEO. “Today, Eniram is a profitable company, growing significantly faster than industry averages or the rate our competition is growing. In fact, 2013 has been Eniram’s best year ever: the company generated record revenues, our systems are today in use on over 200 ships and, not least, we saved 35,000 tons of fuel, roughly $35 million, for our customers.” Mr Dahl continues, “The achievements that we have made in the last few years are clear proof that our strategy is right and we will accelerate the current growth to maintain our position as the global market leader over the next few years.”
“To identify the best five European cleantech companies of the decade would be an impossible task,” said Sheeraz Haji, CEO, CTG. “After all, how can you meaningfully compare, say, a profitable ESCO with a pre-revenue bio-materials developer? Instead, we set out to select private companies that got started and have achieved impressive results in the timeframe since we first conceived of a Cleantech Forum Europe. We sought companies whose stories are illustrative of the collective journey we have all been on, and whose promise for 2014 and beyond is exciting and speaks to the sustainable innovation opportunities in front of us.”
“Eniram was picked to represent software and the power of analytics as an enabler of ’doing more with less’ in the 21st century economy,” explained Richard Youngman, Managing Director Europe & Asia, CTG. “This particular company, in reducing emissions by 163,000 tons of CO2 last year (the equivalent to 32,000 cars) and saving the shipping industry millions of Euros in fuel costs, has been growing its revenues significantly over the past few years. As such, it is a good example of what software innovation can achieve for industrial resource efficiency going forward.”
