A brief description and history of the Top 100 Clean Energy Technologies listing by the New Energy Congress, as well as guidelines and suggest bullet format for the listing.



The above list is a working draft document by the New Energy Congress (NEC), designed to come up with a listing the top 100 clean energy technologies, continually updated to reflect new developments and innovations.

If you know of a technology that should be listed here, you may submit it for review.

The ranking is based on the criteria adopted by NEC. A more rigorous method for determining ranking of technologies based on those criteria is yet to be programmed.

This page was first approved by NEC on Feb. 28, 2006 as an official NEC working document (not necessarily the contents and sequence at that time, but the page idea).

Subsequent to that, the Congress has begun to vote one technology at a time, every few days, and began releasing a monthly report beginning May 1, 2006. The first technologies listed are ranked according to those assessments by NEC members.


As a matter of a general guideline, NEC endeavors as a body to spend about 50% of our collective attention and efforts on conventional renewable energy technologies, and the remaining 50% on non-conventional, or "fringe" clean energy technologies. (Approved March 10, 2006)

A Word to the Wise:
You've heard the saying, "He who is one step ahead is a genius; he who is two steps ahead is a crackpot." That saying applies to the world of ideas. In the marketplace, it can be rephrased as follows: "He who is one step ahead is very rich; he who is two steps ahead is very dead -- or at least very persecuted." If you have a "two steps ahead" technology that is nearly ready for introduction into the market, you might consider purposely ratcheting it back a notch or two, so that it resembles a "one step ahead" technology. Then, once you have your foot in the door and your reputation established firmly, the "two steps ahead" will only be one step ahead. Probably the only way a two-steps-ahead technology could be introduced, would be through open source, where a simple set of plans for an easy-to-build device are published openly for the world, impossible to stop by the powers that be.


Please use the following format when presenting a technology:

  1. Directory1 / Directory2 >
    Name of technology, with hyperlink to PESWiki index - Brief synopsis of the technology, the team promoting it, and its stage of development, in sentence form. 10-35 words. Hyperlink should preferably be to an index page at PESWiki that includes NEC commentary on the technology. (url of company) (NEC specialist: name)
