Leap Recognized on Cleantech Group’s 2022 Annual Global Cleantech 100 list

January 13, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO, December 2, 2021 - Leap, the leading energy market access provider, announced today that the company has been recognized on Cleantech Group’s 2022 Global Cleantech 100 list for its contributions and dedication to building a more digitized, decarbonized and resource-efficient future. Named as Cleantech 100 Early Stage Company of the Year in 2020 and included on the 2021 Global Cleantech 100 list, Leap’s recognition for a third consecutive year highlights the company’s rapid growth and further solidifies Leap’s position as a cleantech leader. Leap’s scalable software solution continues to unlock grid stability and new revenue streams via its dynamic, market-driven approach.

The 100 companies on the list represent the private, independent, and for-profit companies best positioned to deliver solutions that will take us from commitments to actions in the sprint to net zero. This is the 13th edition of the widely respected annual guide. This year’s list included over 10,000 entries from 94 countries. The sectors covered include Agriculture & Food, Enabling Technologies, Energy & Power, Materials & Chemicals, Resources & Environment and Transportation & Logistics.


“Out of all the players creating impact across the cleantech ecosystem, we are honored to be recognized as one of the Cleantech 100 companies this year,” said Thomas Folker, CEO at Leap. “As the grid continues to modernize and incorporate more renewable energy and smart devices, Leap’s software solution enables energy resources of all types and sizes to gain automated, real-time access to energy markets so that each device can maximize the value it delivers to the grid and end-consumers alike.”


The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgments from a global, 85-member Expert Panel of leading investors and executives active in technology and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the Expert Panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.


“We have the science and ingenuity to solve most of the issues and there is the investment capital, in both private and public markets, to propel a three-decade transformation, to net zero,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “The 2022 Global Cleantech 100 companies show this in spades. What they, and hundred others like them, now need is braver regulators, policy makers and procurement departments, to enable such solutions to scale and go down their different cost curves much faster than the current trajectories.”


The 2022 Cleantech Forum San Francisco will take place in Palm Springs, California, and virtually on January 24-26. Leap CEO Thomas Folker will take the stage to discuss how Leap is actively managing distributed energy resources to support electric grids, the grid flexibility landscape today, and what opportunities and challenges lay on the path ahead.
