Great Long Term Market for U.S. Businesses in Clean Energy

  • In response to rapid economic growth and an increasing demand for energy, the central and provincial governments are focused on meeting energy demands while raising clean energy and biofuels as strategic priorities.
  • The newly elected administration has set targets to significantly increase energy production, advance their obligations to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide.
  • This focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency and improved electricity infrastructure creates tremendous opportunities for U.S. companies.
