The article reports on the findings of the clean-technology research firm Clean Edge which revealed that three clean-technology sectors--biofuels, wind power, and solar photovoltaics--have surpassed $20 billion in global revenue in 2007. It notes that the growth of these clean-technology sectors has been aided by tax incentives and subsidies, and their continued success depends on them.
