The report reveals Germany has a huge 15% share of the global clean tech market and is set to experience futher growth in the sector. The country's clean tech companies already generate 11% of the country's GDP and employ nearly 1.5 million workers, the report said, but the clean tech market volume is predicted to more than double, reaching £540 billion by 2025.

Luc Bas, director of European programmes and international state and regions at NGO The Climate Group, said Germany's success could be attributed to, among other things, it's  vision and reassurances of investment security.

The study also suggests the sector's rapid growth is stimulating more traditional segments of the economy, including Germany's giant manufacturing sector.
