World’s Top Cleantech Site
CleanTechnica is the world’s #1 source for cleantech news and analysis. It entertains and informs approximately 7 million monthly global readers along with hundreds of thousands of social media followers. It is followed by some of the biggest names in the cleantech world on Twitter, where it enjoys tens of millions of monthly impressions.
CleanTechnica’s work has been referenced by the New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Think Progress, Reuters, Scientific American, and plenty of other media outlets. Some of the cleantech industry’s top CEOs, directors, founders, and board members read us regularly.
CleanTechnica has been covering the cleantech industry obsessively since 2008 — before it was popular for mainstream media to dedicate blogs or subdomains to the topic.

But What is Our Focus?
Technology-wise, our focus is solar power, clean transport, wind power, energy efficiency, and energy storage. However, we also get into many other topics — geothermal, hydropower, nuclear power, climate change, etc.
Overall, our top goals are to:
- Inspire people and help them to take cleantech action in their lives.
- Share correct information on cleantech, including debunking widespread myths and horrible cleantech coverage in the mass media.
We want to be a useful site for the world and want to develop a strong, useful community of world citizens in order to help move humanity forward in a positive direction!
