SLIDESHOW: Top 10 Global Cleantech Funds Raised YTD

Cleantech funds seem to be the flavor of the month in Asia where most recently major Malaysian banking group RHB Banking has teamed up with Japanese SBI Investment to launch the Asia CleanTech Fund.

Figures for the third quarter suggest there is a hunger for cleantech deals inspite of the turmoil in global financial markets. Senior editor for sister magazine Venture Capital Journal Mark Boslet last month reported on peHUB that venture capitalists had put $2.23 billion into 189 deals worldwide, with North American firms accounting for 76% of the total and Asian firms 14%. This was up 23% from a year ago and up 12% from the second quarter, according to the Cleantech Group.

On the back of this upbeat news for cleantech peHUB is posting a top ten slideshow of global cleantech funds raised this year–click through below to get to it. Canada takes the top spot for cleantech money raised so far this year. The US clearly also accounts for a big share, but there are also two Chinese funds and an Australian fund that feature in this top ten.
