Green technology rages

By Matt Marshall 01.25.07 11:29 AM

greentech.bmpInvestments into new green technology companies tripled last year, and the trend continues unabated.

The President is pushing for alternative energy investments, and Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth gets nominated for two Oscars, which will only add fuel to the fire. The spigot is fully open. We’ve seen more green-related fundings today than ever before. Here are the latest:

–See our story today about A123Systems, the lithium-ion battery company that wants to make better electric cars. It just got $40M.

–Nexterra Energy, of Vancouver, a developer of waste-to-energy gasification systems, has just raised $6.8 million in a third round led by ARC Financial.

–Sopogy, a Honolulu developer of solar concentration technology, has emerged from a long incubation period (six years) and received $3 million in angel financing, according to VentureWire (sub required)

–Sulfurcell, a Berlin solar module maker, using thin-film solar technology (which lets you essentially paint solar cells onto roofs and parking lots), has raised under $10 million in a second round of funding. Masdar Clean Tech Fund LP, managed by Credit Suisse Group, led the round, and previous investors, including angel investor Engelbert Giesen, IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft, Vattenfall Europe AG and Ventegis Capital, also participated. It has raised a total of $32 million to date. Silicon Valley companies Miasole and Nanosolar are doing similar things.

–Vancouver’s Day4 Energy, has raised $11 million more to market its highly efficient solar panels. British Columbia Discovery Fund led the round, after having invested $2.8 million earlier.

    wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that
    you just could do with some % to force the message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d
    like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been written about for decades. Excellent stuff, just excellent!

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
