NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2012) - Recent data from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) has showed that investment in clean energy projects may fall for the first time in eight years as the industry continues to struggle with excess capacity.

According to BNEF investment in renewable energy during the third quarter fell by 20 percent, when compared to a year ago, led by a decline in wind farm financing. Investment by the U.S. in the third quarter totaled $7.3 billion, a 28 percent sequential decline, and a 62 percent decline year-over-year.

"The location of some of the biggest projects financed in quarter three this year highlight the geographical shift that is taking place in clean energy, with established markets such as the U.S., Europe and China losing momentum while newer markets in South America, Asia and Africa pick up steam," said Michael Liebreich, CEO of New Energy Finance.
