The clean energy race is on. The investment and finance data presented in the Pew Clean Energy Program's new report, Who's Winning the Clean Energy Race? 2010 Edition (PDF), show that 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 key financial, investment and technological trends related to clean energy in the world's leading economies, the Group of Twenty (G-20). It documents the continued growth and dynamism of clean energy investment in these economies and it follows recent Pew research showing that policy priority for clean energy is well-placed: Investment in clean power assets alone could reach $2.3 trillion over the 2010-20 period. Countries that succeed in attracting investment can realize the economic, security and environmental benefits of the global race to harness clean, renewable energy sources.
