"Clean Tech Investments Soar Worldwide in Q3: Report"
"SAN FRANCISCO -- Global investment in clean technology roared back in the third quarter, driven by solar power and a public offering that underscores growing enthusiasm for the sector, Greentech Media reported on Monday.
Clean tech investments -- which include solar power, an electric grid controlled by computers for efficiency, electric cars, biofuels and green building materials -- rose to $1.9 billion in 112 deals, Greentech said.
That represents another big jump, after clean tech went from $836 million in the first quarter to $1.2 billion of second quarter."
