Pew report: U.S. drops to third in clean energy investment

The United States in 2010 slipped to third in the world in the amount of private capital invested in the clean energy sector, according to a recent report by the Pew Charitable Trusts. The U.S. saw $34 billion in private equity invested in the sector last year, a 51 percent jump from 2009, but China received $54.4 billion, increasing the lead it’s held over the U.S. since 2008. Germany last year passed the U.S. with $41.2 billion invested in clean energy.
