Preview — The Clean Tech Revolution by Ron Pernick

When industry giants such as GE, Toyota, and Sharp and investment firms such as Goldman Sachs are making multibillion-dollar investments in clean technology, the message is clear. Developing clean technologies is no longer a social issue championed by environmentalists; it's a moneymaking enterprise moving solidly into the business mainstream. In fact, as the economy faces...more

Shelves: misc-non-fiction
Read this book if you want a comprehensive, if US-centric, rundown of cutting edge energy saving and emissions reducing solutions available today, but be prepared for the rhetoric of revolution.
Co-authors Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder are founder and managing director respectively of Clean Edge, a California-based research and publishing firm, so its not surprising they appear completely sold on the potential for clean tech and assume the reader is too.
There is little debate around the nuances
I added one extra star to my rating for the importance of the subject matter. Otherwise, this book is a little light on substance. It reads more like an extended brochure for the clean tech industries. The author does cover a wide range of industries from solar to wind to water, etc. Maybe it is the idea of looking at human-race-saving technologies from a money making point of view that is a bit of a turn off. But that is exactly how we should be looking at it to ensure the proliferation of clea...more
This is a high level and clearly biased overiew of the various areas of clean tech (solar energy, wind energy, biofuels, biomaterials, smartgrid technology, water filtration and purification). It was written to be accessible for the non-expert. As such it's filled with hyperbole, jargon and cliches. It's not a bad read, but I would make several recommendations to the authors on how to better present their conclusions and data. It is not well tied together, although there are valuable nuggets to ...more
The Clean Tech Revolution was the first book I read for my school project. It is a very interesting book since it has a lot of information on changing from gas- solar, wind, or energy power. I inspire everyone of all age to read this book, as it can help us save the environment in a better way, without damaging the economy.

Recommends it for: a few specific types of person (see below)
Like a previous reviewer said, this isn't 'required reading' (despite the blurb on the cover); it's probably not going to change the way you think about clean tech or anything like that.
What this book *is* is an optimistic overview of the state of clean tech today and some of the challenges it still faces. It isn't *super* deep, but it can be a really good starting point if you want to learn more about different clean tech sectors because...
-you're thinking about investing money in clean technol
Fairly comprehensive survey of the clean-tech industry, including power generation, construction sector, transport, etc. Interestingly, the author does not include 'clean coal' and nuclear as part of cleantech. The top companies in each sector are also analyzed - would be interesting to see where these companies are in a few years. It was good to see a couple of Indian companies mentioned (Suzlon (wind energy) and Reva (electric cars))....more
Nothing earth shattering in this book. It is a lengthy whitepaper on the topic. The biggest weakness of the book is that it does not propose a cost benefit analysis, a company valuation or a ROI. Yet, it proposes to recommend the next big growth and investment opportunities. In other words there are no hard numbers to really support the new technologies. In summation, this book is a collection of ideas culled from headlines and business journals.

Recommends it for: investors, environmentalists, interested in energy field
This book provides good insight to the various ideas out there that involve 'Clean Tech.' In particular it deals with the energy issues that we (are?) will be facing in the future and all the options that sit on the table. The book also highlights the current leading companies for each respective area. Would be a book for anyone interested in the Green movement or investing, or an even better book for those that are interested in both. ...more
A great primer on the state of the clean energy industry for investors or just the idly curious. The authors go through industry by industry and highlight the relevant companies in each. A great read for anyone looking for clues as to where the next bull market in stocks might come from. Highly informative and very accessible.
Well written and informative, but not exactly a page turner. It also doesn't help that this edition is several years old, as the subject matter is changing so fast. In any case, I enjoyed it and felt I learned a lot....more
It was an amazing book and it was very helpful. I used this book for a science project and covered all the information that I needed for the report. It was very well written had lots of facts and statistics.
Interesting book on the future of renewable energy technologies. This is a book that I enjoy because of the field of work I'm in, but anyone interested in business and/or renewable energy would probably like it. ...more

This is a well thought out book. It is especially helpful if you are looking to invest in GREEN Companies. A good deal of thought and research went into the layout and developing of the book. The Author's have a fantastic GREEN website. An educational read....more
Great book to see what's already happened in business as far as strides towards a greener way of existing and making money. Very quick read. ...more

A simple overview of the sectors within green business. Not much real substance of the real issues concerning each sector.
great book that breaks down leading investment opportunities in clean tech. read this before the economy hit the crapper.
sort of high level compiled facts, some hype, but more depth kept missing.
