Abstract
Some renewable sources of energy are becoming economically profitable and legislatures are providing greater legal predictability for investment in this area. Many states have implemented Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPSs) and the U.S. Congress extended the investment period for Investment Tax Credits (ITCs) recently. Wind energy is the most mature renewable technology and energy-efficiency offers high profit potential in the short term. These two areas thus provide great investment opportunities for venture capital funds interested in clean technology and private equity funds focusing in renewable energy buyouts.
