Clients are happy to pay for such technology because it adds to their pro-environment reputation.

  2. Costs of conventional sources of energy have been rising consistently, and there is a shortage of supply in many regions around the world. That makes the clean energy business models viable and fairly cost efficient in relation to the prices of conventional sources. 

  3. There is sufficient technical and management expertise and talent pool available to run these clean technology businesses efficiently. This ensures that the companies are run properly, and there is profitability and wealth maximization for the investors in the venture.
