What is Cleantech? How is it Different from Climate Tech?
Cleantech and climate tech have quite significant differences, Solum.id tries to explain them in detail
Increasing world awareness of the need for change to anticipate the climate crisis has resulted in rapid development in the sector cleantech and climatetech.
These two terms are often used interchangeably, including one in Wikipedia, indicating that the two are actually the same in basic concept.
Although this assumption is true, cleantech and climatetech actually have quite significant differences.
This article will try to explain what it is cleantech and climatetech, and how the two can be differentiated.
What is that cleantech?
Before discussing the differences, we of course have to recognize each one first.
Menurut Investopedia, cleantech is a term used to classify various companies or technologies that have the aim of improving environmental sustainability.
Term cleantech became popularly used in 2002. at that time, cleantech is defined as a wide range of products, services and processes designed to improve performance and efficiency, while at the same time reducing or eliminating the resulting environmental impact.
What is that climatetech?
PwC describe climatetech as technology specifically designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, or to help address and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Examples climatetech covers carbon capture and storage technologycarbon capture & storage – CCS), as well as technologies designed to improve building energy efficiency.
From here you can actually see that climatetech has a more specific goal than cleantech. But at the same time, we can also get an idea of how the two will intersect.
