Who's Winning The Clean Energy Race: PeW
The clean energy race is on. Countries are jockeying for a leadership position in this growing and increasingly competitive sector. Countries with clear, consistent and constructive clean energy policies are powering investment forward.
This report examines keyfinancial, investment and technological trends related to clean energy in the world's leading economies, also known as the Group of Twenty (G-20).
Our primary focus is on investment, which is the fuel that propels the innovation, commercialization, manufacturing and installation of clean energy technologies. The data have been compiled and reviewed by Pew's research partner, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, a market research firm focused on renewable energy.
Our research shows that the clean energy sector around the world has roared back from flat recessionary levels, increasing 30 percent from 2009 to achieve a record USD243 billion worth of finance and investment in 2010.
