Global warming and high oil prices will help the clean-energy market to more than quadruple by 2015, according to a new report.
The report, from consulting and analysis firm CleanEdge, predicts the market will grow from the current $39.9 billion to $167.2 billion in the next nine years. It asserted that a number of trends will cause a growing interest in solar, wind and other forms of energy that don't revolve around fossil fuels.

Initiatives and Funding Programs
- Empire State Development's Environmental Investment Program (EIP), invests in projects that lead to the reuse or recycling of solid or industrial process waste and pollution prevention projects that lead to reductions in the volume or toxicity of waste before it is generated. In return, the organization must produce measurable results in the form of pollution prevention, reuse, remanufacturing or recycling. Small and medium-size businesses, municipalities and non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for this program. For further information contact the Environmental Services Unit at (518) 292-5340 or firstname.lastname@example.org by email.
- Through a variety of programs, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) helps businesses, institutions, municipalities and residential utility customers identify, finance, and implement cost-effective energy efficiency improvements. Energy efficiency contributes toward pollution prevention goals by reducing energy consumption and therefore the emissions associated with energy production and use. For more innovative or technically challenging projects, NYSERDA's research and development program can provide funds toward the development and demonstration of new pollution prevention products that reduce or recycle wastes. For additional information, please contact Dana Levy, (518) 862-1090 x3377, Miriam Pye at (518) 862-1090 x3370 or visit NYSERDA's website (see Other Links of Interest below.
- The US Environmental Protection Agency Source Reduction Assistance Grants Program provides grant funding for various pollution prevention projects, such as equipment technology changes, product reformulation/redesign or process modifications that would reduce the quantity of pollutants entering the waste stream, or reduce the use of raw materials, energy, water or other resources. Governments, institutions and non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for funding. For further information please visit EPA's website at www.epa.gov/oppt/p2home/grants/index.htm.
- The Rural Utilities Service Water and Wastewater Disposal Loan and Grant Program is offered by the US Department of Agriculture and provides loans and grant funds for drinking water and wastewater projects that serve small, low-income rural communities. Communities where residents face conditions that could result in significant health risks will receive priority for available funding. To find out more about this program, visit the USDA website at www.usda.gov/rus/water or contact the USDA Rural Development State Office at 315-477-6400.
