On a consecutive quarter basis, dollars invested in Q3 2011 is 4% above the amount in Q2 2011.

These numbers led Jay Spencer, Ernst & Young LLP’s Americas Cleantech Director to say, “Confidence in cleantech investing continues despite the challenging investment market. We saw significant commitments in energy storage, which reflects a growing corporate focus on proactively managing their energy mix.”
