Bloomberg New Energy Finance has unveiled its assessment of the leading investors and service providers in clean energy and the energy smart technologies sectors.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance names 2012

The list shows different leaders from the previous year in every single category, among them the European Investment Bank in asset finance, Japan-based Toray Industries in mergers and acquisitions, Germany-based HEAG in venture capital and private equity, and Goldman Sachs in public markets.

“This is the eighth year we have prepared annual league tables showing the most active deal-makers in the sector," said Michael Liebreich, chief executive of Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

"The transactions in 2012 that helped to produce winners this time included everything from a $1billion-plus offshore wind financing, to a $701 million energy storage acquisition, to an $18 million venture capital investment in a solid-state lighting technology developer,” he added.

The 2012 Clean Energy and EST League Tables are based on results calculated from the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Industry Intelligence database, the world’s largest and most authoritative resource covering financial transactions in these sectors.

The same source produced figures earlier this week showing that clean energy investment was $268.7 billion in 2012, the third successive year in which it has exceeded quarter of a trillion dollars. However the 2012 total was down 11 percent on 2011, hit by regulatory uncertainty and policy changes in some key markets.

The league tables identify the most active and innovative investors, project financiers, investment banks, and law firms in sectors as varied as wind, solar, bioenergy, geothermal, carbon capture and storage, low-carbon services, smart grid, energy efficiency and electric vehicles.
