Founded in 2008, the publication was built from the ground up by Ian Thomson, Marco Schmoecker and Ceylan Thomson, three passionate entrepreneurs with a strong interest in promoting environmentally and economically sustainable solutions. Under their leadership, CleanTechies was quickly recognized as a “Best Business Blog” by the Weblog Awards in 2009.

In February 2014, CleanTechies was acquired by RenewableEnergyWorld.com Co-founder Oliver Strube in collaboration with Debrah Dubay, Chairman of the Communication Committee at TREIA, and Marshall Harkins, Houston Metro Director at Cleantech Open. 

Guided by these three new visionary Principals, the CleanTechies brand continues to thrive upon its founding mission of supporting individuals and organizations in bringing sustainable, clean technologies and renewable energy to more businesses, homes and communities around the world.
