The report provides you rich insights about the industry and its myriad opportunities. Upon reading the report, you will be ready to take the entrepreneurial plunge into this exciting industry.

Why Cleantech?

Every second news item today is about alternative energy and about the world going green. What computers did to the world of business in the mid-seventies, the alternative energy revolution is expected to replicate and even exceed, in terms of opportunities.

The cleantech market is much larger than the more prominent renewable energy market. The cleantech market worldwide is worth about $2 trillion, while the renewable energy market is only about 20% of that!

There are opportunities in renewable power production - solar, wind, biomass, small hydro etc, but upsides for these opportunities are rather constrained. And the possibilities to innovate, while definitely available, are again constrained. Cleantech is however much larger than renewable energy. And every aspect of cleantech has a long value chain with a plethora of opportunities.
