Cleantech Capital Day in Oslo June 2 - 3rd - a meeting place for Scandinavian Cleantech
Stockholm, 3 May 2010
Ministers, CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors – they all meet at the Cleantech Capital Day in Oslo on June 2 – 3rd
Despite a slow year of cleantech investments worldwide, amounts invested in Nordic Cleantech companies have increased three years in a row. The total amount of capital attracted by cleantech companies in the Nordics rose to EUR 460 million during 2009, a 24% growth rate compared to the year before, marked by an increased inflow of international capital. Of the top 20 investment deals, no less than eight were Norwegian, including the largest investment. Norwegian solar related technologies have attracted plenty of funding in 2009 through companies such as Norsun, Metallkraft and Innotech Solar.
