Today in Cleantech

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that today’s big news in Green IT is the UNEP announcement that investment in clean energy projects surpassed investment in fossil fuel projects in 2008. After all, it is big news. What it doesn’t mean is that clean energy generation is by any means dominant, or that it will be anytime soon. But it does indicate the growth opportunity that clean energy sector represents. Tech companies have long delivered solutions for the utility and energy industries; shifting from, say, oil exploration to wind integration might not be a bad call.
