Solarcentury Continues Explosive Growth
There's certainly been a lot of talk recently of what the current market carnage means for solar and other clean tech industries. However, it's not all bad news. UK based Solarcentury who regularly feature on our pages (see below for an extensive list of links) have just been named one of the top ten British clean tech companies by the Guardian, Library House CleanTech 100, as well as being featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 a few weeks later. The Times' feature claims that Solarcentury has seen sales soar from UK£6.0m (approx.US$12m) in 2005 to UK£19.4m in 2008. In fact, Solarcentury's press release about these latest accolades claims that they are now "officially the UK's fastest growing energy company". Here's a little more from the Solarcentury website about the recognition they've been receiving — let's just hope that they continue to ride high through the present turmoil:
" First, on Thursday 18th September we were named one of Europe's top ten clean tech companies by the Guardian, Library House CleanTech 100. Referred to as a 'beacon' of the UK solar energy industry in this new survey, we were then, on Sunday 28th September, featured alongside the best of UK technology companies in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100.
This is the third time we've been included in the Tech Track 100, so we're pleased to be keeping up the standard. It's probably a good time to thank our customers and suppliers for helping us do this, after all, we work hard here at Solarcentury towers, but it's down to you too! Onwards and upwards towards a wonderful solar future "
