Cleantech in the UK is a key area of interest for European investors, according to Ernst & Young.

Almost a fifth of European investors rated cleantech, the new wave of energy efficient technology, as important in the analyst’s annual European Attractiveness Survey, which rates at how attractive Europe is for foreign investors.

This makes cleantech the third most important sector for investors, up from tenth in 2009, suggesting that appetite for new efficient technology is growing.

However, 56% of cleantech companies interviewed said that the attractiveness of the UK has not changed in the last 12 months.
