CleanTechnica is now the #1 most-visited clean energy or cleantech site in the US, according to Compete.com, and in the world, according to Quantcast.com (unless there are some more-visited sites I happen to be completely unaware of).
Our website strives to be (or to remain) the most indispensable site on the planet for cleantech news and commentary.
We have been covering the cleantech industry obsessively since 2008, before it was popular for mainstream media to dedicate blogs or subdomains to the topic. And we are now a well-recognized leader in this field.
Recognition from Around the Interwebs:
The following are just some of the indications that we are a top site to follow or reference for cleantech news, facts, or commentary:
- We were featured on CNBC for one of the videos in CNBC and Harvard Business Review’s “Energy Opportunities” series. (Site director/editor Zachary Shahan was interviewed in CNBC’s London studios for this video.)
- We won TreeHugger‘s 2011 Best of Green Reader’s Choice Award for Best Sci-Tech blog.
- We consistently rank near or at the top of Technorati’s “Top Green Blogs” ranking.
- We were featured on Mashable for a series on “5 Startups Improving Society Through Technology” (CleanTechnica being one of the five).
- We were invited to the first ever Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week as “VIP Media” (all expenses paid).
- We have been syndicated on Scientific American, Reuters, and other top sites for years.
But What is Our Focus?
Technology-wise, our focus is solar power, wind power, energy efficiency, and clean transport. However, we also get into many other topics — geothermal, hydro, nuclear, climate change, energy storage, and more.
Overall, I think our top goals are to:
- inspire and help people to take cleantech action in their lives;
- share correct information on cleantech, and debunk widespread myths;
All in all, we want to be a useful site for the world and want to develop a strong, useful community of world citizens in order to help move humanity forward in a positive direction.
