Clean energy investments higher than previously estimated
London, March 17—New investment in clean energy slipped back in 2009 compared to the peak level achieved in 2008, as stated by Bloomberg New Energy Finance in its estimates published in early January this year. However, the absolute dollar figures have today been revised upwards, to $162bn for 2009 and $173bn for 2008. The change reflects methodological improvements carried out over recent weeks by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the world’s leading provider of news, data and analysis to decision-makers in clean energy and carbon markets.
