"…offers readers a thorough guide to the basics of clean energy investment opportunities". (City AM, Tuesday 17th March 2008)
Clean energy, simply put, has all the earmarks of being one of the best investment trends ever. Better yet, it is still very early in the game and the bulk of the money has yet to be made. This book provides investors with a straightforward guide on how to invest in the diverse and fast-moving clean energy sector.
The demand for new and cleaner forms of energy comes not only from climate change and energy security concerns, but also from the sheer amount of new energy generation that will be needed to satisfy the world's fast-growing needs. World energy demand will grow 57% by 2030 and $4 trillion of new power generation assets are needed by 2030, according to official energy agencies. With this huge target market, the clean energy industry can easily grow at double-digit annual rates for decades.
Clean energy includes very different sub-sectors including solar power, wind power, fuel cells, geo-thermal, biomass and biogas, wave and tide power, efficient appliances and lighting, efficient buildings, smart meters, advanced power storage, hybrid battery technology, biofuels, cleaner coal, carbon trading, and others. Each of these sub-sectors features different technology, growth drivers, and players.
With Profiting from Clean Energy, respected investment analyst Richard Asplund provides an in-depth explanation of the technology and industry structure behind these sub-sectors and in the process identifies more than 150 stocks related to clean energy. Asplund provides criteria for choosing the best clean energy stocks and offers an investment opinion on each of the main clean energy sub-sectors. He also discusses how to invest in clean energy, whether through buying individual stocks, investing in green exchange-traded funds or mutual funds, or trading the biofuel and carbon credit markets.
In short, this book provides an easy way for investors to quickly become experts in the clean energy industry and discover its many exciting investment opportunities.
This book also has a companion Web site (www.ProfitingFromCleanEnergy.com) that will continue to provide essential information about this evolving topic. On it, you'll find resource links for further research, industry conference lists, clean energy video clips, and much more.
