fall on a daily basis. Some problems appear here to stay. When these situations arise people look towards government, business and one another for answers to these problems. Renewable energy, climate change and the environmental forces humanity tends to impede upon, seem to be the most important news items of the day. Quantum Technologies, a company with leadership in this environmental arena, has become an interesting case study within the green energy industry and all of its potential offshoots.

The purpose of this essay is to examine Quantum Technologies and its position within the green energy industry by using Porter's five forces model as a guide.

This essay will be useful in understanding applied business theory and possibly predicting market outcomes and results.
