“The Clean Energy Upside from G20”
By Sam Hopkins | Friday, April 3rd, 2009

To the G-20 communique “We have today therefore pledged to do whatever is necessary to build an inclusive, green, and sustainable recovery”, GreenChip responds “By taking a holistic approach to the reform of global financial institutions and the way money moves, the G20 will ensure the flow of funds into clean energy ventures and national projects.”

Green Chip Review is an on-line investment newsletter, so expect a lot of stock-picking advice. It does offer a useful overview of alternative energy news and opinion.
