Green – or clean – technology is much vaunted as the most important step humanity can take in the next decade. With the majority of the world (with the exception of a notable few) accepting that something needs to be done to protect the environment from man-made pollutants, green technology is becoming ever more prevalent.
One of the factors behind the revolution is that green tech is at a stage where it is now offering a viable alternative in many fields. Dan Matthews wrote an article for our Investors’ Academy which highlighted the improved cost-competitiveness of solar and wind power. Logically, if the technology is more efficient and affordable, it will be taken on by a greater number of users. This, alongside an increasing number of governmental schemes to decrease emissions, landfill and waste, is the driving force behind the trend to invest in clean technologies.
Forbes wrote in 2015 that China will see an investment of $2.5trln into green technology in the next decade, in the search for efficient alternative energy sources. Equally, The Guardian noted last year that we are at the tipping point for investing in renewable energy, with many institutions cutting back or dumping investments in oil.
There are two sides to green technology investment opportunities. Some companies are looking to minimise the impact of existing technology while others aim to switch existing tech to a new resource.
