Green / cleantech investments grew significantly in Q1 2010 after their Q4 2009 retreat. Green investments jumped 55% and 134% on a deals and dollars basis, respectively, vs. the prior quarter. The big dollar jump is attributable to a handful of mega-investments but deal count especially in the Energy/Renewables arena grew appreciably as well.
