CCBJ estimates the global climate change industry at $171 billion in the U.S. and $615 billion globally in 2008. While growth in 2009 will be flat due to the global recession, we expect growth to resume in 2010, with the industry reaching $380 billion in the U.S. and $960 billion worldwide by 2012.
This edition also analyzes the advanced waterpower segment (wave, tidal, river-instream) and covers the latest evolutions in the voluntary and mandatory carbon markets.
Inside this edition:
- The ARRA: How changes in tax credit policies for renewable energy will affect project finance for wind, PV, geothermal and other projects.
- Survey Results: Professionals from all segments of the Climate Change Industry rank elements of the ARRA, describe their firms’ perspective on specific opportunities, comment on what types of contractors will be most likely to get work from the federal government and offer ideas for measuring the impacts of the ARRA.

- Investor perspectives: VC investment in the climate change industry
- Advanced Waterpower: New hydrokinetic technologies are emerging that generate power without dams. CCBJ covers wave energy devices, river instream energy converters and tidal instream energy converters, including profiles of Pelamis Wave Power, Hydro Green Energy and Free Flow Power.
- Guest perspectives: Analyses and forecasts regarding the climate change industry from Energy Central’s Sierra Energy Group, HSBC Climate Change Centre of Excellence and ICF International.
