With the aim of helping investors see the value of green stock, The Green Market has been charting the performance of stock in 3 renewable energy sectors and 2 energy efficiency sectors. The 3 renewable energy sectors are Solar, Wind and Geothermal, and the 2 energy efficiency sectors are (smart) grid and lighting. In January of last year, The Green Market posted 5 sustainable portfolios. Here are the results for The Green Market's green stock in 2009.

Firms like Canadian Solar soared last year and The Green Market's solar stock portfolio outperformed the market's strong growth for much of 2009. However, Canadian Solar is not the only green stock that surged in 2009. Here are 4 of the top performing green stocks for 2009:

- EnerNOC gained 286 percent

- Solar stock portfolio averaged gains of 64 percent
- (Smart) grid stocks portfolio averaged gains of 61 percent
