EpiGaN Named In 2014 Global Cleantech List

EpiGaN, a provider of III-nitride epitaxial material solutions, today announced it was named in the 2014 Global Cleantech 100's Ones to Watch list, produced by Cleantech Group, whose mission is to connect corporates to sustainable innovation through the i3 market intelligence platform, expert consulting services, and global events.

The inaugural Ones to Watch list seeks to highlight a group of upcoming companies that are catching the eye of leading players in the market. They are companies who did not quite have enough market support to make the 2014 Global Cleantech 100 list itself, who have never been on a previous Global Cleantech 100 list, but who clearly carry pockets of strong support among key corporations, investors, and Cleantech Group analysts within the Cleantech Group's Expert Panel. The Expert Panel consists of an influential group of 84 panelists who help determine the annual Global Cleantech 100 list.  The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem.

 "We are very happy with this inclusion in the Global Cleantech Ones to Watch list," said Marianne Germain, founder and CEO of EpiGaN, Hasselt, Belgium. "It is great to be rewarded for the hard work of our very committed team and the continuing effort that we have brought to this work since the founding of our company in 2010. We are currently expanding our leading GaN-on-Si epiwafer production capacity to process larger wafer diameters of up to 200mm offering a very high breakdown voltage. The new facility is based on our unique in-situ SiN capping layer concept. It is equipped to support the volume demand from our worldwide industrial customers who are developing new generation of highly efficient and energy-saving power systems solutions."

 "We are excited to release a second list under the  Global Cleantech 100 program, to recognise 60 other rising stars that, from the process we ran, we can see are catching the attention of some important players in the market," said Richard Youngman, Cleantech Group's managing director, Europe & Asia and creator of the Global Cleantech 100 program. "We look forward to following their progress, and hopefully seeing some of them graduate to future editions of the Global Cleantech 100."

This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 5,995 distinct companies from 60 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 327 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group's Expert Panel, resulting in the inaugural Ones to Watch list in addition to annual the Global Cleantech 100 list. To qualify for the both lists, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
