Global Cleantech Cluster Association

GCCA is a fully independent and open platform designed to support the development towards a shared economy and low carbon prosperity. As a meta-cluster GCCA provides access to capital, corporates, markets and insights.
With the GCCA Deployment HUB Network and its digital platforms in Europe, Asia and North America, GCCA drives the modernization of cross-border business collaboration by converging physical and digital cluster ecosystems.

A GCCA focus task is the development of new financial mechanisms to enable large-scale commercial deployment of proven technologies. Goal is to provide an investment alternative at appropriate risk and return expectations for institutional investors, e.g. pension funds.


Vision of the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) is to drive sustainable regional economic development, on a global scale.
