Increased Interest In Clean Technology
A number of economic and political factors have lead to an increased interest in the clean technology sector, which seems more sustainable than peaks of interest in recent decades:
- increasing energy demand by emerging economies like India and China
- increasing oil and gas prices (also the fear of approaching peak oil)
- instability in many oil supplying regions (Middle East, Venezuela, Bolivia)
- energy resources being used as geopolitical levers
(i.e. Russia in Ukraine and Europe, Iran in Russia and China)
- increased certainty that global climate change is “real” and poses a severe problem
California And Germany Leading Clean Technology Regions
California and Germany stand out as well established leaders and attractive target markets in the clean technology industries. Some of the key areas that are strongly represented are:
- solar energy
- wind energy
- hybrid engines and fuel cells
- water technologies
- energy efficiency
