Invest In Your Future With Alternative Energy ETF’s

Playing Renewable Energy With ETF’S (FAN, KWT, NLR, GEX)

renewable-energyChina, second only to the United States in terms of power consumption, announced this week that it will spend about 100 billion yuan ($14..6 billion) to more than double its wind power capacity by 2010 over last year. More than 200 billion yuan was allocated to energy saving and carbon reducing projects under China’s stimulus plans. That investment will take the country’s wind power capacity to 30,000 megawatts from the current 12,000 megawatts, according to the country’s deputy director of renewable energy. Further, China expects its investment in alternative and renewable energy sources to exceed 2 trillion yuan by 2020.

Nuclear: The Next Energy ETF Trend (NLR)

nuclear1Catching the mega trend is a tricky business. If you’re paying attention, you might have a chance. Green energy was one such trend - and now we think another such trend may be developing in nuclear energy. When oil jumped significantly a couple of years ago, Hummers were still popular. Most Americans didn’t mind filling up their 2 SUVs (remember those?). As long as gas was “reasonable” they just put it on the card. But as the global boom unfolded, the world consumed more energy than the market could supply at such “low” prices. Crude oil briefly shot up to around $150. This scared many Americans. They scaled back on their energy consumption - sometimes out of necessity. At the same time, Al Gore (remember him?) came out with his movie about global warming. The resulting publicity about greenhouse emissions led to soaring interest in alternative energy sources. Suddenly the hybrid Toyota Prius was mainstream and incandescent light bulbs were a social faux pas. Green energy was in. Anyone who bought Green four years ago made out like a bandit.
