Solaris Synergy was awarded first prize and the Leviathan group of companies took home second and third place in the Israeli national Clean Tech Open IDEAS Competition this week. The competition focuses on leading early stage environmental technologies.

Solaris Synergy is developing a modular floating platform of solar panels to be placed on reservoirs. Leviathan was awarded the prizes for their work on computational fluid dynamics and a new small size wind turbine. Leviathan has figured out how to increase the output of large wind turbines by 20-40 percent just by focusing the wind which reaches the blades of the turbine.

The competition was hosted by the Akirov Institute for Business and Environment at Tel Aviv University as part of the Global Clean Tech Open IDEAS Competition, an annual international competition to seek out leading early stage environmental technologies.  As Israeli first place winners, Solaris Synergy will go on to represent Israel in this global competition, the university said in a statement.  Technologies were evaluated by an expert panel of scientists, investors, and market analysts who specialize in the cleantech area.
