 How Germany, Spain, and China Are Seizing the Energy Opportunity and Why the United States Risks Getting Left Behind

The United States must make long-term investments in clean energy development or risk being shut out of a $2.3 trillion industry, this new report has found. The study describes Germany, Spain and China as early winners in the next great technological and industrial revolution because each imposed policies to encourage low-carbon energy development. Japan, Denmark and South Korea, the authors predict, also will profit handsomely as the industry expands. But the United States, lacking domestic clean energy policies, threatens to be left behind.

This report is a cooperation of the Center for American Progress and the Heinrich Boell Foundation.
