2 2 Freely distributable in original, unmodified form The cleantech, or greentech, category has evolved since it was first defined in 2002; Now, in 2012, Kachan & Co. has revisited its definition of the category and offers the following taxonomy Classic definitions of cleantech and the industries under its umbrella have not kept pace with innovation because data organizations legacy taxonomies are hard-coded to custom, difficult-to- change systems Analysts at cleantech research and advisory firm Kachan & Co. have recast their taxonomy of cleantech, detailed on the following pages – Revisited 11 legacy categories of cleantech, reorganized as now just 8 – Adopted terms the market has settled on and redacted outdated terminology – Categorization of technologies, not financed projects or players in the value chain – Inclusion of newly emerged, and emerging, technologies This new taxonomy shows where a clean technology fits; it helps entrepreneurs, investors, service providers and large corporations understand the breadth and depth of the cleantech category, and can help research organizations such as Kachan & Co. and others report consistently Dozens of others frameworks were reviewed, including taxonomies from Cleantech Group, China Greentech Initiative, StrategyEye, Greentech Media, Skipso and Wikipedia, all of which helped inform the final structure in the following pages A new cleantech taxonomy
