NASDAQ Clean Energy Index Launches

nasdaq.jpgChalk up another progress point for clean-tech. The NASDAQ, along with Clean Edge have launched a clean energy index which will follow the performance of certain publicly traded clean energy companies. (WSJ article here). The index is great news for anyone following clean tech, and I’m guesing it will out perform the market (given today’s energy situation). Let’s hope it does! (thanks Joel)

  1. I wish it was true. The rational that clean energy will outperform the market because of a looming energy crisis doesn’t make sense. I suspect that alternative energy, clean or not, will outperform. If there is a crisis the consumer will demand that any readily available technology be used to overcome the shortage.
