The clean energy squeeze

Renewable energy is facing challenges as subsidies fade out in some regions, but through the gloom there are strong rays of hope, with one country claiming its solar could power the world four times over by 2020.

Squeeze a tube of toothpaste in one place, and the paste squirts out somewhere else. Squeeze the clean energy sector in one location, and investment immediately seems to pop up in a different part of the world.

That was the case again last week, as debate continued to resound over subsidy programs in Germany and the US. As this happened, fresh announcements of renewable power investment plans were made in Israel, Bali and Saudi Arabia.
