Cleantech Energy Investing

  1. 1. Get more info on this report!Cleantech Energy InvestingJuly 1, 2010Energy consumption is rapidly growing around the world. The modernization ofemerging economies (such as India and China) has increased pressures on traditionalenergy providers (as well as increasing environmental concerns). As fossil fuel reservesdwindle, there is a growing need for clean energy supplies. Clean energies haveemerged as an alternative for the fossil fuels, but many technologies still do not displaythe same level of efficiency and maturity compared to more traditional sources.Investments remain a key growth factor, as many technologies present technicallimitations to practical use. Many existing cleantech technologies cannot compete withcoal energy, with is used as the current benchmark when evaluating feasibility.Subsidies are an important key of the clean technologies puzzle, but if thesetechnologies are unable to develop long-term comparables, they run the risk of beingrelegated to niche products. This is especially true of renewable technologies.This new SBI Energy reports delves into the global investments patterns dedicated todeveloping and commercializing these technologies. It covers a significant range oftechnologies and geographies to gain a greater understanding of the global investmentsmarket. After interviewing close to a dozen key stakeholders of the clean energytechnology sector and doing extensive documentary research, we were able to buildthis report.Exploring investment growth in seven energy producing technologies (solar, wind,biofuel, hydro, geothermal, nuclear and clean coal) and eleven geographies (the UnitedStates, Canada, Brazil, Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, China, India,Japan and Australia), it is an essential tool for any manager looking for a global cleanenergy investment perspective within a single document.Read an excerpt from this report below.Table of Contents
