Clean energy is a nebulous term which mean different thing for different people. For some, even natural gas and nuclear energy is considered as clean fuel while others accept only Solar and Wind energy as clean energy. In general we can define Clean Energy as any form of Energy whose generation leads to creation of negligible greenhouse gases and other waste products.
About Mission Innovation:
It is a global initiative of 22 countries and European Union to dramatically accelerate global clean energy innovation. These countries represent 80% of global clean energy R&D budget.
Participant countries have committed to double clean energy research and development investments over five years.
