First-Half U.S. Greentech M&A Up 9%
U.S. greentech M&A hits $9.4 billion in the first of 2012 despite tepid investor enthusiasm.
First-half M&A activity was once again led by solar and energy efficiency, which together accounted for 44% of the total transaction volume, although smart distribution finished the half with a higher reported deal value ($4.2 billion) thanks to ABB’s $3.9 billion purchase of Thomas & Betts. Reported deal value for renewable energies declined by 48%, but wind and bioenergy saw transactions rise by a respective 27% and 59%.
