Last week, for the first time the CleanTech Founder Prize was awarded, which was launched by the Green Economy Center Langenfeld and the German CleanTech Institute. The first winners were the companies PMR-Gas Generators and enbreeze. Environmental start-ups in North Rhine-Westphalia are recognized with the CleanTech Founder Prize. By conferring the award, the initiators of the CleanTech Founder Prize want to foster the courage to be independent in the CleanTech sectors and recognize above-average entrepreneurial achievements. ENBREEZE 2ND WINNER Second place went to enbreeze (more on enbreeze). The young entrepreneurs optimize small wind turbines for low-wind sites. Up to this point, small wind turbines could only be operated economically where there were high winds. With the wind turbines from enbreeze, other locations can now be considered. In this way they contribute to decentralization of the power supply. The systems developed continue to have the advantage that they are not dependent on subsidies. The initiators of the CleanTech Founder Prize, the German CleanTech Institute (DCTI) and the Green Economy Center Langenfeld, aim to sensitize entrepreneurs to aligning their businesses from the outset to make a contribution to a sustainable society. With the CleanTech Founder Prize, they have now created a platform for appropriately honoring entrepreneurs for their efforts.
