1 min. read

Just a "heads up" about the new report by CleanEdge,  entitled, "Clean Energy Trends 2011."  A few highlights:

  • Cleantech growth rates "now rival that of earlier technology revolutions like telephony, computers, and the Internet."
  • The global market for solar photovoltaics (PV) "has expanded from just $2.5 billion in 2000 to $71.2 billion in 2010, for example, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.8 percent."
  • "Wind power (new installation capital costs) is projected to expand from $60.5 billion in 2010 to $122.9 billion in 2020."
  • "In 2010, U.S.-based venture capital investments in clean technologies increased from $3.5 billion in 2009 to $5.1 billion in 2010, an increase of 45.7 percent...represent[ing] nearly a quarter of all VC activity in the country last year, a new record."
