VCs and Clean Energy

Investors may be hypersensitive to market bubbles after the debacles of the Internet crash in 2000 and the current housing crisis.  While some industry watchers have suggested a similar situation could occur in the clean energy movement, venture capitalists do not see trouble on the 2009 horizon.

Over 9/10’s of venture capitalists and other experts expect to see at least 10% investment increases in this sector. The optimists are looking for investment increases of 20%. Investments will be spread among the following sectors: Energy storage (fuel cells and batteries), Clean coal, Wind energy, Alternative fuels, and Solar

By region, investment in this industry will vary: West Coast 60%, Southwest 14%, Midwest 13%, Northeast 9%, and the Southeast 4%.
