Perhaps the most active cleantech efforts in California take place in this eco-friendly city that happens to have all the resources to make it happen. U.C. San Diego provides the intellectual fuel needed to keep cleantech R&D in algae technology, wind and solar development, electrical storage systems, and a myriad of other cleantech technologies grinding out new processes that can be converted to everyday life. Private partners like San Diego based Sapphire Energy, Cellana, and Synthetic Genomics make clean energy happen. As a result, San Diego is ranked 2nd in the nation for its solar installations which generate over 303 megawatts and 8th for clean power production at 51 million kilowatt hours.
