Fueling Economic Growth
As the economy continues its sluggish recovery, many corporate stocks remain depressed. However, U.S. clean-energy companies enjoyed a stock index rise of 25% from February 2009 to February 2010, accord-ing to Clean Edge, Inc, the world's first research and publishing firm devoted to the clean-tech sector.

By 2018, CleanEdge predicts that the global market for biofuels and wind and solar energy will reach $325 billion, fueled by the increasing number of companies and organizations, like the U.S. Postal Service and Waste Management Inc., which are transforming their delivery vehicles into green hybrid fleets. According to the State of Green Business 2010 report by Greener World Media Inc., clean-energy technologies ac-counted for 1,125 patents issued in 2009 and, in a year when commercial construction all but halted, green certifications for new and existing buildings grew faster than ever.
