Many times investments are kept private, however Venture Capitalists have made the largest investments in green technology, with over $8.4 billion in 2008 – a record high despite the poor economy.
One the largest contributors to the push for green energy is T. Boone Pickens. He developed the “Pickens Plan” in 2008 which called for alternatives to oil such as wind and solar. The main portion of this plan includes creating a wind farm corridor through the middle of the United States. Although this is simply a plan, he has been criticized for his plan due to his investments in the wind and solar industry, including his title on many patents which would need to be utilized for this plan to occur. He is quoted to be planning to spend over $50 million promoting this plan. Therefore, I think that he is one of the largest individual contributors to the promotion of green energy.
