Geographic distribution

As per the previous years, the key cleantech hubs remain in areas with prominent institutes of higher learning and locations with high economic activity. Very little movement is seen in the overall ranking of cities with most cleantech actors this year.

However, a notable observation in 2020 is the decentralization of the cleantech actors. Whereas previous years saw a consolidation of actors in the main economic hubs, 2020 saw a reversal of this. For the first time, many of the cities in the top 10 ranking saw a decrease in the number of registered actors, where many smaller communities saw an increase. The cause of this change is speculative, but possibly related to the change in work conditions induced by the COVID19 pandemic.
