The New Energy Equation - Investment Patterns

By Richard Wottrich, Blog Editor

Cascadia Capital LLC has published an alternative energy analysis based upon a Deloitte and Cleantech Group LLC New Energy Finance Report entitled, “Global Trends in Sustainable Energy Investment 2009 Report.”

Venture capital investing in clean energy jumped 10 percent between Q209 and Q309, reaching $1.6 billion; VC investing in clean energy has risen steadily this year, albeit from lower levels.

Clean energy was the largest investment category in Q309 for venture capitalists, with a 27 percent share of investments, up from 15 percent in Q109. Increased government spending on clean energy is stimulating private investment in the sector.

The average size of clean energy deals transactions in 2009 is $52.6 million and the 2009 YTD total transaction values are $18 billion.
