The United States is no longer the most attractive renewable energy market for many investors, according to the Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index. India and China have surpassed the US at the top of the index semi-annual ranking of the 40 leading countries on the attractiveness of their renewable energy investment and deployment opportunities, based on a number of macros, energy market and technology-specific indicators.
