With the right blend of government policies and incentives, the Chinese greentech market could reach $1 trillion -- or 15 percent of the country’s GDP in 2013, a coalition of business and policy experts said this week. The report identified more than 300 greentech solutions across seven sectors in a country whose economy has grown into the world's third-largest, but not without significant environmental costs, including pollution and water scarcity issues. The report says the private sector can also play a large part in driving the cleantech sector, but will do so only if the underlying policy framework makes for an attractive business case.
