  • Market-based development. Increase the profitability of local enterprises through customized solutions on sustainability
  • Concrete range of facilities (laboratories, clean rooms, testing facilities etc)
  • Provide the local, national and international industrial sector with scientific R&D for the optimum sustainability performance according to the circular economy concept
  • Lay the foundations for technologies that lower energy bills, decrease carbon emissions and improve people’s lives
  • Attract clean-tech investors and generate high-value clean-tech start-ups
  • Promote competitiveness and business culture between similar companies through common R&D activities
  • Assessment of air quality improvements when replacing conventional with clean energy technologies


Existing approaches to valuation fail to capture the full value of clean energy technologies. Investors typically consider only the direct return on their investment, rather than looking down the value chain to identify other financial benefits that increase the worth of clean energy technologies. Clean energy technologies deliver a total value proposition (TVP) far greater than their ability to generate electricity, reduce energy consumption, or fuel the world’s growing transportation sector.

Understanding the total value proposition of clean energy can help investors make better-informed decisions about project selection and implementation, as well as provide a more complete framework for effective business valuation.
