About CleanTech.Org is the leading portal for energy & environmental technology commercialization.

Think of us as a virtual incubator for clean technologies, and a resource to scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs and investors interested in new technologies in cleantech. The cleantech sector is global, with no geographical center of gravity... so we've created one on the web.

We welcome new technologies across the energy and cleantech sector: solar and photovoltaics, ethanol and biofuels, fuel cells, batteries, combustion, carbon, IT, alternative energy, wind, geothermal, renewable power, water, environment, energy efficiency, or any other green technology.

Find an investor or executive interested in your area, post your resume or business opportunity, dive into 10 years of proprietary research, or ask our experts for advice or help.

Our mandate is to be the access point for the growing number of individuals and companies seeking to become involved in the sector. We seek to allow these participants to develop networks with each other, and to access information and resources to facilitate commercialization of clean technologies through an interactive experience.
