Export Markets Offer Clean Tech Opportunities And Challenges


With the global market for clean technology products and services poised for significant growth, both established energy players and emerging technology providers must look beyond local markets to maintain and enhance their leadership positions. For this reason, clean technology is a focus of President Obama’s National Export Initiative and the Export Promotion Cabinet, the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC), and the federal agencies working to carry out the National Export Initiative.1

The Export Promotion Cabinet’s newly released “Plan for Doubling U.S. Exports in Five Years” (the export plan) describes both new initiatives and efforts to enhance wellestablished programs. This WSGR Alert highlights opportunities that may be of interest to the clean technology sector. Although a more specific “National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Export Strategy” is expected soon, clean technology providers should not delay their plans to seek export assistance. Many of the initiatives are already open for business and well underway.
