The creation of better power management technologies for use in clean energy installations may depend on the introduction of new incentive schemes by the government.
Dan Ilett, editor in chief at enterprise environmental consultancy Greenbang, says the current market penetration of clean technologies could be reaching an impasse unless more is done to support their continued roll-out.
With four-fifths of carbon emissions in the UK arising from the nation's cities, he adds that they should represent a particular area of focus for the greening of infrastructure through sustainability improvements.
However, while renewable energy generation has been a focal point thus far, he suggests looking to alternatives - which may include better power management - to boost efforts to lower emissions.
"It's important to say that clean tech is essentially a number of industries all rolled into one - the definition of clean tech is reasonably poorly defined," Mr Ilett asserts.
