The challenge of clean tech investing

Investors in clean tech stocks have, in the main, had a difficult few years – and they are quickly finding out that when it comes to renewable energy companies, size does matter.

Alternative energy is turning out to be unhappy hunting ground for stock-picking fund managers as the small scale of energy projects forces them to turn to bigger manufacturers and technology companies vulnerable to the economic downturn.

The decentralised model of alternative power generation can be a bonus, cutting grid transmission losses and construction times, but it can also be a burden for investors, particularly during a downturn that favours defensive stocks.
