We are all aware of how gas and oil prices have skyrocketed in the last decade. Many huge corporations which include not only the oil and gas companies, but motor vehicle manufacturers as well, have been avoiding real, trans-formative and sustainable energy sources. The time to pay attention to new energy sources has come. Alternative energy has grabbed big business by the collar and shook it until it said, “uncle”.
There are experts in the industry who are predicting that many companies in the alternative energy field will be the place to buy stock right now and in the near future. There are three big areas where alternative energy is breaking through and those are; wind, solar and bio-fuels. Here’s an example with some hard numbers; between 2009 and 2010 worldwide investments in renewable energy sources went up 32%. These investments totaled more than $200 billion dollars.
At the end of 2011 in the middle of November, one of the largest airline companies in the U.S (United Airlines) sent one of their plane on a domestic trip with a gas tank full of algae-derived fuel. The best news about this flight; no modification was made to the plane. It was filled with the renewable fuel and sent on its way.
So, if you are looking to invest your money in stocks that have an almost guaranteed ticket to uptick, then start investing in companies that create and use renewable and alternative forms of energy and the products that support them.
