This year, the World Economic Forum
has selected 26 companies active in energy, environmental technologies,
health, information technologies and new media as the 2010 class of Technology Pioneers. Not only are they developing groundbreaking products and services that can
help achieve the promises of sustainable energy, the reduction of the various digital divides, and the treatment and improved monitoring of various
health conditions, but they are also redesigning business and society with their disruptive innovations.
"We're at an historic point in time when technology can finally enable clean, renewable energy at a price competitive with fossil fuels," said Bill Gross, Founder
and CEO of eSolar. "For the last 200 years, man burned everything he could to power the planet. Now, before it's too late, we can make
the switch and usher in a new era of low-cost solar energy. eSolar is honored to be recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer working to make this happen."
