Cleantech in China
The 2009 research agenda
This report overview is a prospectus for the Cleantech project, offering a review of our current thinking of key issues in all aspects of clean technology development in China, and, by extension, global trends and China's impact on clean technology developments in the world. The Cleantech Group will build this new reporting and information project on the foundation of the pioneering reports on China's clean technology industry and investment opportunities published in 2007 and 2008, most recently our primer for investors, Cleantech Venture Capital & Private Equity Investing In China.
This report overview and the research activities it inaugurates will set out a comprehensive scoping of the cleantech agenda, an extensive discussion of particulars of China's cleantech developments and China within a global context, analysis of investment trends and mechanisms, as well as trends in economics, markets, and regulatory frameworks, with special attention to the global financial crisis and emerging new global financial order. This report and the research activities will explore in detail all key cleantech sectors, their technologies, applications, prospects, and players. We plan to organize and distribute reports, data, and information from this initiative in formats that serve the needs of cleantech investors, developers, entrepreneurs, regulators, technology officers, service professionals, and consumers.
The convergence of forces and factors that make China a flagship carrier of this growth and the wealth creation it will support discussed in this document include:
- The global context
- The policy view
- The market view
- The investment view
