Cleantech News

Do you invest in cleantech companies? Do you have a general interest in the sector, or are you involved in a business that offers clean technology products or services? If so the Wiser cleantech news email is for you. The terms cleantech and clean technology are often used interchangeably. They describe businesses, products or services that come under the broad heading of environmentally friendly. This includes companies the produce clean energy, or products that are classified as sustainable or green. Industry, regulators and governments are interested in this technology, but one of the main drivers is consumers. This has seen a rise in innovative businesses breaking into the sector and, importantly, investors seeking out these sorts of investments. And while people continue to look for ways to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and be kinder to the environment, cleantech is a sector that will continue to grow. It is a fast moving sector with new innovations being developed all of the time. To stay on top of the best and learn the mistakes of the worst, sign up for the comprehensive daily cleantech news email from Wiser.
