“The most effective way to accelerate cleantech products and services, and scale cleantech, is not to throw more government money at the industry, but for the government to embrace its role as policy maker and setter of standards. There is no lack of capital to be brought to this industry. What it needs are long term assurances that there will be a continued market for cleantech.”
