Maps Show Clean Tech

If you’re wondering where the cleantech hot spots are around the globe, then we have the ultimate map for you: Earth2Tech’s 101 Cleantech Startups, where you can see how cleantech companies are sprouting up all over the place. The different sectors — like solar, energy storage, biofuels and electric vehicles — are all represented by a logo, and each pin on the map has all of the vital stats for each startup (founding year, investors, technology, etc.). We admit we’ve got a bit of a Valley skew, but we’ve thrown in some of the international cleantech heavyweights as well. View Larger Map And for those of you who are fans of our other maps, make sure to check out our Biofuels Deathwatch map and Coal Deathwatch map.

Earth2Tech

Earth2Tech is a publication devoted to covering startups and entrepreneurs that are creating innovations to fight climate change. We scour university labs for the next cleantech leaders, and keep a close eye on tech giants’ green campaigns.

Concepts/Theories

Just Sustainability

Just Sustainability is “the egalitarian conception of sustainable development"(Jacobs, 1999:32)[1]. It generates an improved definition of sustainable development as “the need to ensure a better quality of life for all, now and into the future, in a just and equitable manner, whilst living within the limits of supporting ecosystems” (Agyeman, et al., 2003:5)[2]. This new form of sustainable development prioritizes justice and equity, while maintaining the importance of the environment and the global life support system.

D., and Evans, B. eds., Just Sustainabilities: Development in an Unequal World (London: Earthscan/MIT Press, 2003), 5.

Bottlenecks to "energy efficiency"

lack of information/awareness consumers

policies

remove subsidies and tax breaks for energy consumption

setting energy efficiency standards for appliances & equipments

remove fuel subsidies

Priorities for action

set energy standards for appliances and equipment

finance energy efficiency upgrades in new buildings and in remodels

raise corporate standards foe energy efficiency
