The catalyst debates - green innovation: how can the UK do better?

Getting green innovation right will reduce costs to UK consumers, increase business productivity and help to rebalance our economy.

The UK has a fast growing clean tech business sector, and a strong renewable energy deployment programme to drive innovation. But we have a poor record of commercialising new technology and a ‘spray and pray’ approach to funding most clean tech R&D. The Green Investment Bank begins to address the gap in project finance for green infrastructure deployment but isn’t expected to invest in the UK’s most promising clean tech companies which continue to struggle in finding growth capital.
