Clean energy and clean technology are established global markets with excellent prospects for future growth. In the United Kingdom, the clean energy and clean tech sectors have continued to expand despite difficult economic conditions. In 2011, worldwide spending on solar projects totaled $136 billion while U.S. spending equaled $56 billion. At the same time, worldwide investments from venture capital, corporate RD&D and government R&D sources in the development of clean tech exceeded $10 billion. (Bloomberg New Energy Finance)
