More on the Clean Edge report

As this Forbes.com article shows, clean energy is getting more and more attention these days. The quote from Rodrigo Prudencio at Nth Power (another great clean energy VC) is pretty much exactly right: The comfort is coming back into the market, as people realize these really are big and important markets.

What's really useful in the article, however, is the litany of M&A and other "big company" activity it provides. Especially in clean energy and other clean technologies, the most likely exit for a venture investor is going to be a trade sale or other non-IPO outcome. So it's really important to see the big guys paying more attention to this and getting in on the action -- it shortens the investment horizon, which is a good thing.
