When we think of clean tech, this would normally be solar, wind and other green energy products. However, this is not always the case and last year there were some significant closures in this sector, so does this mean that green tech is finished or is it just a glitch?
The problem is that the business failures and division closures in this sector are not necessarily down to green tech, but mainly to how the businesses are set up.
The truth of the matter is that investment in this sector is on the increase and yet there have not been many new business formations, which gives the illusion of a failing green tech sector.
The info graphic below by Focus shows where green tech has failed, where the deals in this sector are and where the sector is heading in the future.
