Glo AB Selected as a European Cleantech Company of the Decade

Glo AB, a company that provides high-quality light source solutions for displays, illumination, and automotive sectors using its proprietary nanowire-based LED technology (nLEDTM) was named today by the Cleantech Group (CTG) as one of Europe’s Cleantech Companies of the Decade.

“This is a great acknowledgement of the significance of our advanced technology and its potential to be a game-changer in the area of LED solutions for display as well as lighting applications,” said Lars Samuelson, Chief Scientific Officer of Glo AB and Professor at Lund University. GLO AB originates from the Nanoscience research at Lund University.

This one-off award was made in connection with the 10th anniversary of 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. “To identify the best five European cleantech companies of the decade would be an impossible task. After all, how can you meaningfully compare, say, a profitable ESCO with a pre-revenue bio-materials developer?” said Sheeraz Haji, CEO, CTG. “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.”

“We selected Glo—a 2013 Global Cleantech 100 company—because it represents the energy efficiency opportunity, as well as the quality of Europe’s science base as a lever for more start-ups in the future,” explained Richard Youngman, Managing Director Europe & Asia, CTG. “All the indicators and information we are privy to suggest a very bright future for Glo.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
