Despite being one of the world's most prominent polluters, China's investments into clean technology far surpass the United States. According to Ernst & Young, China is the most attractive location to invest in renewable energy projects. The firm says that the United States slipped to second place last year -- due in part to China's $11.5 billion in asset-financing for clean technology in the second quarter of this year -- on the Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Indices, which grades countries on a 100 point scale in national renewable energy markets, renewable energy infrastructure, and suitability for individual technology.
