San Jose ranked No. 2 in cleantech growth potential
San Jose ranks second in the nation among U.S. cities that are leading the way in "cleantech" -- the term that refers to venture capital-funded technology start-ups in everything from biofuels to renewable energy, according to a report released Tuesday.
SustainLane Government, a sustainability knowledge base and networking Web site for state and local governments, released its top five cities with the most prominent emerging cleantech incubation clusters, which it said are likely to help drive 21st Century metro area economic growth.
San Jose draws upon strong existing Silicon Valley semiconductor engineering base and IT venture networks, with a focus on solar energy and nanotechnology, SustainLane said.
