When people think of the phrase “disruptive technologies,” one of the first things that might pop into their heads is a Silicon Valley start-up. But right now, perhaps the most interesting market disruption we are witnessing is in energy, as old ways of powering our economy give way to advanced technologies.

And as we found when compiling Next 10’s 2016 California Green Innovation Index, which presents fresh economic data from 26 metro regions, clean energy leadership can be found across California — not just in traditional innovation hotspots.

Fresno is the state’s top region for industrial solar power, according to a report from a San Francisco nonprofit.

The amount of solar on Fresno-area warehouses and distribution centers – 11,132 kilowatts – is larger than the amount installed in the Silicon Valley and the greater Los Angeles areas combined, the 2016 California Green Innovation Index said.

A just-released report hails California as the dominant state in the country when it comes to developing a clean-energy economy and promoting green technology.

And if California's figures were counted as a nation, the Golden State ranks among the top five in the world in measures such as energy productivity, electricity from renewable sources and reductions in carbon intensity.

California is getting cleaner while also growing its economy dramatically, according to findings in a new study.

The eighth annual California Green Innovation Index shows the state has grown its economy, as measured by gross domestic product, while being less carbon intensive.

​California installed 3,266 megawatts of new photovoltaic solar arrays in 2015, more than any other state.

California is easily the top state in the country in developing its clean-energy industry, leading all other states in solar energy production, electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle sales and the number of clean-energy patents issued, according to the eighth annual California Green Innovation Index report released Wednesday by San Francisco-based think tank Next 10.

That wasn’t much of a surprise, though the state’s clear dominance was indeed striking.
