New research from Clean Edge gives Oregon high marks for leadership in the clean energy world.

The clean-tech research firm Clean Edge ranked Oregon the No. 2 leader in clean energy behind California.

Their research ranked more than 70 different indicators in technology, policy, and capital, the top 10 states in the nation are California, Oregon, Massachusetts, New York, Colorado, Washington, New Mexico, Minnesota, Connecticut, and Vermont.

Idaho leads the U.S. in clean electricity as a percentage of its total generation – at an astounding 84 percent – when you include hydro and biomass.

Washington ranks high in this area, too, with 71.59 percent, and Oregon weighs in at 63.84 percent clean energy (again including hydro and biomass). South Dakota ranks third in this category with 65 percent clean energy.
