Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and Cleantech Group Announce Launch of Government Funding Resource

Online Portal Provides Extensive Database of Funding Opportunities

PALO ALTO and SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 29, 2009) – Wilson Sonsini Goodrich
& Rosati, the premier provider of legal services to technology, life
sciences, and growth enterprises worldwide, and the Cleantech Group,
providers of leading global market research, events, and advisory services
for the clean technology ecosystem, today announced the launch of a powerful
online tool that provides clean technology entrepreneurs and companies with
a searchable, easy-to-use source for federal and state government funding
opportunities and guidance on how to apply.
The publicly available tool-driven by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
content-aggregates and frequently updates the numerous financing
opportunities, such as grants, loan guarantees, tax credits, and other
programs, being offered by federal and state governments. Users are able to
search by industry sector, as well as by state-by-state resources. The tool
also includes articles by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati attorneys on how
to take advantage of governmental funding opportunities, links to useful
federal and state websites, and additional firm publications such as The
Clean Tech Report and relevant WSGR Alerts and press releases.

The tool appears on the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati website as the
Clean Tech Resource Center and on the Cleantech Group’s website as the U.S.
Government Stimulus Portal.

“We are proud to work with many of the leading clean technology companies as
they develop products that address the world’s need for clean and renewable
energy,” said Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati CEO Steven Bochner. “The firm
has an exceptional team of attorneys committed to this space, and the Clean
Tech Resource Center is just one more way in which we will continue to help
deserving companies take advantage of opportunities for growth.”

“As federal funding becomes increasingly important for financing clean tech
innovations, we are excited to add the U.S. Government Stimulus Portal to
our website as a resource for the clean tech community,” said Sheeraz Haji,
Managing Partner of the Cleantech Group. “Our firm aims to provide the most
timely, comprehensive, and relevant research and insights for global
enterprises, investors, governments, and entrepreneurs.”

The tool may be accessed through the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
website at http://www.wsgr.com/cleantech, and through the Cleantech Group’s
