The article focuses on an Ernst & Young report which revealed that venture capital investments in U.S. clean tech companies rose 55 percent to $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2008 amid heated solar interest. Clean tech for all three quarters of 2008 scored $3.3 billion, a 71 percent jump over the same period in the previous year, according to the report. The funding bright spot comes amid economic woes that raise uncertainties for clean tech investments and a change in the Oval Office that could promise to boost the clean tech industry.
