Capital is needed to grow one’s business, particularly when entering new markets. Obtaining it from private sources, whether through conventional bank loans or via the capital markets, is a common route. A less hyped alternative is public (i.e. government) funding. The report offers information and advice for those exploring the public option.
The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce has during 2009 formed a new and exciting partnership with one of the most prominent American based consulting organization on sustainable development, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR). The collaboration has been put together to focus and promote on the challenges the business sector faces within a sustainable water handling. As one product of the efforts taken this year, a report on water has been published, which also bring light on the participating companies that attended our Water Conference on November 5, in New York. The report was made possible by the generous support of IBM.
Through a series of reports the Chamber's GreenTech & Business Services division continues to tap into the latest buzz within the cleantech sector in New York. The latest report documents an ongoing debate on some of the technolgies and innovations that seems to be the hottest at the moment but also possibly with the shortest time to market in terms of competitive products. The report is not intended to give an in depth analysis of the all aspects but rather to give a snapshot of some opportunities worth digging deeper into.
As a follow up to Part 1 in this series, the Chamber's GreenTech & Business Services division launches Part 2 which identifies and present concrete initiatives in water and energy efficiency within the cleantech sector in New York. The report aims to link the most interesting sources and efforts that are taken in this field at present and in the future. The report is not intended to give the full scope of all opportunities within this field but rather to inspire how to use governmental and private incentives to leverage your entry and/or expansion on the U.S. market.
The GreenTech & Business Services division at SACC New York has published a report titled "The Current Market for Renewable Energies in the United States." This is part of a series of publications throughout the fall aiming to bring light to the cleantech opportunities in the U.S. in general and New York in specific. The purpose of this report is to provide a snapshot of the renewable energy source industry in the U.S. market and to provide strategic information to small and mid-size Swedish companies considering entry into this market.
Part I of the report describes the renewable energy market in general and the factors influencing current market growth. In line with the current financial recession, private investments in cleantech have taken a plunge, and the industry will in a near term perspective rely heavily on federal and governmental support. This is best expressed in the U.S. State stimulus package, American Reinvestments and Recovery Act of 2009, which was launched in February 2009.
Part II highlights specific natural resources which play a significant role for future energy generations. The United States has an enormous potential to utilize these renewable energy sources but the availability and economic sense varies with each region. It is therefore fundamental to understand state incentives being created to promote cleaner technologies and solutions.
Part III is a report linked to Swedish knowledge of cleantech and how companies can take advantage of these opportunities.
