“President Obama’s Climate Action address has reenergized the cleantech
industry, and our i3 data — in addition to the strong performance of Solar
City and Tesla — underscores our belief that we are turning a corner,” said
Sheeraz Haji, Chief Executive Officer of Cleantech Group. “Recent acquisitions
of Waze, Power-One and ecoATM provide further reason for optimism, and the
breadth of private companies generating material revenue is impressive.
Alongside these trends, we continue to track increased activity by large
corporates. Indeed, the tide appears to be turning in 2013.”
