Third Way released a report November 2 in which it concluded that global demand for clean energy tech is expected to exceed $2.3 trillion over the next decade, but that the United States is in the middle of a severe crisis for clean technology venture capital investment. Broad venture capital investment gains made between 2003 and 2007 have been essentially zeroed out by the recession and the funds left in the clean tech sector are moving toward less-risky, later stages of innovation where more mature companies are looking to surpass their competition.
