Tallaght-based HUB Controls has been placed in a prestigious global list of the top three companies who have achieved outstanding innovation in the cleantech sector.

The company, which manufacturers a smart thermostat, The HUB Controller, that regulates temperatures in the home, was recognised in the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) Top 3.

Every aspect of the HUB Controller is developed in Ireland including design and engineering, as well as manufacturing.

Founded in 2014, HUB Controls was also awarded a Silver Medal – just one of three major awards handed out at the annual event that celebrates global cleantech businesses.

The GCCA's Global Top 10 winners represent the best of the Association's member clusters and over 10,000 member companies worlwide.

Sustainable Nation Ireland, which promotes Ireland a hub for sustainable business, is the Irish partner of the GCCA. It can nominate up to 10 companies every year for consideration.

Previous Irish finalists have included Open Hydro, Cylon Controls, Imperative Energy, Hanley Energy and Fenestra Pro.

"We could not be happier. The quality of cleantech innovation and entrepreneurship at the event and being promulgated by GCCA and Sustainable Nation is testament to the concept and dedication of the association," Oliver Hynes, CEO and founder of HUBControls, said.
