In order to write an effective clean technology business plan, you must factor in several important trends in the clean tech (or “green” tech) sector and broader investment trends as well as economy. What affect will these important trends have on your new clean technology venture?

  • The volatility in the price of oil and other global commodity prices
  • The nation’s (and world’s) growing awareness and concern over global warming
  • Widespread consumer adoption of energy conservation
  • The government’s pursuit of energy independence and incentives to achieve independence
  • Increased investments from venture capitalists and private equity firms in clean tech businesses


Questions For Clean Technology Business Plans

To write a successful clean technology business plan and successfully launch your new clean tech venture, you must determine answers to the following questions:

    • What is the true market demand for your clean technology solution?
    • How will you prove the feasibility of your clean technology venture?
    • What kind of financing (e.g. debt, equity, etc.) will you need, and how much?
    • What sources will you seek capital from?
    • What relevant alternative energy experience does your management team have, which you can leverage to impress investors?
    • What strategic partnerships will you forge?
    • How will you market (and/or distribute) your product/service?
    • What are your future financial projections?
