The global clean energy race offers insight to the leading indicators of innovation, commercialization, manufacturing and installation of renewable power technologies. The investment and finance data presented in the Pew Clean Energy Program's new report, Who's Winning the Clean Energy Race? 2011 Edition, 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 Group of Twenty (G-20), the world's leading economies. It documents the continued growth and dynamism of clean energy investment in these economies. This report follows recent Pew research showing that investment in clean power assets alone could reach $2.3 trillion by 2020. Countries that succeed in attracting investment can realize the economic, security and environmental benefits of the global race to harness clean, renewable energy sources.
