Clean Technology Investing: the Future is Here

Posted by admin on March 30, 2013 in Clean Energy with 16 Comments

For almost decades now, humans have been battling the after effects of technology and development. Its impact on the environment has already begun to show up. Global Warming is one of the gravest dangers being faced by mankind today. This is one of the reasons why clean technology has become such an important part of development today.

Clean technology investing is a thing of the future, say venture capitalists. But what is clean technology?

Clean technology is any technology that uses raw materials like water, air and electricity more effectively and produces minimum toxic waste from it.

In simpler terms, it is technology that has a minimum impact on the environment and at the same time gives a much better output in terms of profit. It is also known as ‘cleantech’ in short. The applications of cleantech are many. For example, energy, water filtration, electrical vehicles etc.

What makes it lucrative for investors?

The growth of ‘cleantech’ in the last few years has been significant. While cleantech companies only represented about one percent of all American investments about 5 years ago, it has risen to almost 7 percent now. This number is set to further increase. Automation technologies that for energy management is set to rise to $5 billion in the next few years.

By the year 2012, the global wind energy market is estimated to touch $28 billion. The energy infrastructure in the US has been clearly underinvested and this has cost the US billions of dollars.

This is one of the sectors where cleantech has made massive inroads in. Similarly, the water sector is another area that is undergoing considerable development.

The growing number of attractive deals

In the last three to four years, there have been almost 500 investment transactions in Cleantech. The number of deals is set to rise even further. This is what makes it one of the best investment options ever.

    Do we really want to go back to the Republican party?
    What are Republicans future plans for America besides increasing offshore drilling, and increasing the size of our military, or low income taxes? Why aren’t they investing in things like science, Immigration, clean energy,technology,etc. Things that will actually get this economy going as well as the nation. We all saw what Republicans did to us years ago when bush was in office. Do we really want to go back to that?
    I know America is losing the trust of the democrates, but I don’t think we are ready to go back in trusting the republicans.

    I have lost faith in both political parties

    I used to be voting for the Democrats but now I either won’t vote

    or vote for the lesser of two evils

    I am so disillusioned

    Conservatism is what’s going to keep America strong, so, yes, I am joining the Republican party

    They win by default because the democrats are doing such a horrible job, and there is no viable third party.

    I don’t know I think that people are impatient and are wishing for everything to happen at once. I am not surprised though. When republicans screw up again they will turn to the democrats and than when they fail to fix everything instantly they will vote republican again.

    I think its just a vicious cycle that will probably never get completely fixed.

    I give a provisional yes; if the Republican party abandons the "Democrat Lite" approach and is truly prepared to return to their conservative roots, then yes… Otherwise, there’s no difference between the two – For the last 8 years or more, it’s been like watching Professional Wrestling – The disagreements are staged for when the cameras are on and then they hang out together in the dressing room after the show.

    The lack of difference between the two parties is exactly what has led to the current extremism on both the right and left; our form of government is partisan by nature – When they’re all agreeing, it’s a tag team match (Back to the ‘rasslin reference) and a segment of the American public is left with no partner

    Dude I know that with your question that you don’t like the idea of a strong national defense. also you don’t like more money in your pocket. You would much rather let the Government have your money that you worked for. As for investing in science and alternative energy. Why not let the ones better qualified to use science to developer it. So far we (tax payers) have been ripped off by this administration and congress and other administrations and congresses that have not came up with one solution to the problem. So why let them take any more.

    I suppose that you are one of the happy ones that will be happy to see the Bush tax cuts come to an end December 31, 2010.

    If your taxable income is $28,400 you will pay 15% in taxes, next year you get to pay 28% or damn near double. If you are one of the super rich you pay 35% this year and next year will pay 39.4%.

    I saw what the republicans did, during their 12 years of controlling congress they added a total of $3.878 trillion to the national debt, an annual average of $348.9 billion each year. The democrats controlled congress for a total of 4 years during Clinton/Bush and the last 1 1/2 years of Obama have added more than $5 trillion.

    Yeah, I’m ready to go back
