This research report analyzes the U.S. clean technology industry including forecasts through 2018. It is a useful resource for consulting firms, clean technology research organizations, investment firms, utilities, and government participants in clean tech fields.

This report features a section listing clean technology and renewable energy grant and loan programs, and includes a directory of up-and-comping clean technology companies.

Renewables are expected to make up one‐quarter of the global electricity mix as early as 2018. The United States remains a dominant global player in renewables and markets are trending upwards.

In 2013, renewable electricity capacity (potential) from sources like biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar and wind accounted for more than a third – 34.9 percent –of new generating capacity in the U.S. Meanwhile, total installed operating capacity (actual) of renewables accounted for 16 percent.ii Excluding hydroelectric power sources, renewable energy generation climbed by 16% from the previous year, representing approximately 14% of overall production in 2013.

This report reveals that no matter the fuel source, without energy storage technology advancement, there is a limit to how effective renewable energy generation will be. Therefore we feel that there is large opportunity in the energy storage technology sector.

This research report analyzes the Clean Tech industry through a series of frameworks including a SWOT analysis, PEST analysis and a Porter's Five Forces analysis. Details includes industry definition, industry statistics, requirement for renewables in the U.S., industry value and volume analysis, industry segmentation, market and technology trends and much more.

The role of policies impacting the U.S. renewable energy industry plays a big part in the growth of this industry and a section is dedicated to the analysis of the policies that govern the U.S. renewable energy industry. We also look at the country's energy policy and it's relation to other oil‐producing countries.

An in‐depth forecast for the industry is included in this report. Outlook for the renewable energy industry in the U.S. is segmented into government and institutional outlook, outlook by industry value and volume, outlook by trade organizations, outlook by sectors such as marine and hydrokinetic, hydropower, solar power, wind power, biomass and ethanol, and others.
