"It’s perhaps not surprising that a recent report from PA Consulting finds that we rank only fifth among 14 European nations as attractive for investors in clean tech."
PA’s Energy Investment Map has been mentioned in an article on Professional Engineering. The Energy Investment Map is an online interactive energy map which assesses the investment credentials of 14 European countries and the business case and risk assessment factors for ten different technologies.
The article explains how companies that develop low-carbon technologies are struggling to get the backing they need from investors.
The article goes on to explain that Britain has ideal credentials to develop clean energy technology; plenty of resources of wind, wave and tidal power. Companies working on developing renewable energy devices and technologies on a smaller scale are widespread in the UK, but are struggling to attract the investment they need to flourish in the recession.
“It’s perhaps not surprising that a recent report from PA Consulting finds that we rank only fifth among 14 European nations as attractive for investors in clean tech – behind Austria, Norway, Denmark and Sweden,” reports Professional Engineering.
The article explains that PA’s report suggests: “Chinese investors and international funds may be showing “significant” interest in investing in UK infrastructure assets.”
