Be Careful Investing in Renewable Energy Says Jim Cramer
Jim Cramer shows off his Apple (AAPL) Watch and answers Twitter (TWTR) questions from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. On the subject of renewable energy, Cramer says he thinks you have to stay away from the group. He does likes First Solar (FSLR), and says the safest thing to do may be to buy a yield co like the one NRG Energy (NRG) spun off. He also says as oil prices rise, Valero (VLO) is a stock to sell. With Alibaba (BABA) reporting earnings, Cramer says the best way to play it is to buy Yahoo (YHOO). He also thinks the dollar has peaked and that 3M (MMM) is a stock to buy. He does not think Apple has peaked, and that you buy Apple to own it and not trade it.

Renewable energy investment explained
Renewable energy is currently a hot topic in the business world, with financial experts picking green energy investment as one to watch for those looking to invest in something ethical and sustainable without necessarily comprising their investment return But what types of renewable energy schemes should investors consider? How do they work and what are the likely returns and potential risks? The Energy Bonds scheme is the UK's first secured solar mini bond which sees investment in a countrywide scheme that allows businesses to convert their roof space to mini solar farms at no cost to themselves in exchange for significantly reduced energy bills. For investors a 6.5% return is paid quarterly over three years, which compares favourably to the rates being offered by banks' traditional savings accounts. In fact, the situation for savers has become so miserable that some everyday current accounts now pay better rates than those specifically designed for saving. For the majority of savers, the average interest rate in a savings account is less than 2%. With inflation running at around 2.7% it means that savers are effectively losing money by leaving their savings in the bank. With the government's commitment to providing subsidies to green businesses and underwriting energy efficient schemes in order to meet Kyoto Protocol carbon emission reduction targets, schemes such as Secured Energy Bonds are expected to become more of an attractive proposition to businesses and investors in coming years. So are Energy Bonds something you should be looking into?

Renewable power less expensive than newly installed fossil & nuclear - UNEP Renewables 2018 Report
Excerpts. For Full Visit: http://webtv.un.org/watch/press-conference-4-june-2018/5793359057001 A new report released by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) says positive developments show that the renewable energy transition is possible, but advances so far are uneven across sectors. Speaking to reporters in New York, Laura Williamson from the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) said “renewable power accounted for 70 per cent of net additions to global power generating capacity which is the largest increase of renewable power capacity in modern history. A lot of this was thanks to new solar PV.” She added “capacity which at the end of the year had a 98 giga watts installed capacity. So to put that in context that’s equivalent to about 40,000 PV panels being installed hourly across 2017.” According to the Renewables 2018 Global Status Report, the year 2017 was another record-breaking one for renewable energy, characterised by the largest ever increase in renewable power capacity, falling costs, increases in investment and advances in enabling technologies. Williamson said “thanks to the technology advances and dramatic reductions in cost of, in particular solar PV and wind, renewable electricity is now less expensive than newly installed fossil and nuclear power generation in many parts of the world. And in some parts of the world, it’s even less expensive than the current operating conventional power plants.” The report also says while China, Europe and the United States accounted for nearly 75 per cent of the global investment in renewable power and fuels, 2017 saw significant investment in developing country markets. When measured per unit of gross domestic product, the Marshall Islands, Rwanda, the Solomon Islands, Guinea-Bissau and many other developing countries are investing as much as or more in renewables than developed and emerging economies. These positive developments need to be scaled up for a global energy transition. The report also noted that though strong growth continued in the renewable power sector, other renewable sectors grew very slowly. Solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity installations were remarkable – nearly double those of wind power (in second place) – adding more net capacity than coal, natural gas and nuclear power combined. The report says there is slow progress in renewable energy uptake in heating and cooling. Energy demand for cooling is growing rapidly, and access to cooling is an issue for health and well-being. Renewables currently play a small role in providing cooling services, although there is considerable potential. In addition, renewable energy progress in the transport sector remains slow. Biofuels provide most of the current renewable energy contribution, although electrification is gaining attention.

Investment in renewable energy increasing and costs falling
(16 Jan 2017) LEAD IN: Investment in renewable energy has increased worldwide, according to officials at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week. They say the falling cost of renewables is making them more competitive as an energy source. STORY-LINE: The Middle East and oil are inextricably linked - but renewable energy is the hot topic in the UAE today. Robots capable of cleaning vast commercial solar power plants are just one of the products on display at the World Future Energy Summit exhibition. Investment in the sector has increased drastically around the world, according to officials gathered for Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week. "305 billion dollars, US, of investment in renewable energy in 2015. That's something to celebrate in terms of transformation of the world." says Peter Thomson, President of the General Assembly at the United Nations. One of the main drivers for such a high level of investment is the decreasing cost of renewable energy. "In the last six years solar PV prices have fallen between 80 and 90 percent worldwide, onshore wind has come down by almost 40 percent, offshore wind by 30 percent," says Adnan Z. Amin, Director-General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). He says renewables are becoming "cost competitive" compared to more traditional energy sources. Prior to the start of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, Dubai announced its 2050 energy strategy. By then they envision that 44 percent of their energy will come from renewables, and they will decarbonise by 70 percent. But the UAE still has one of the highest carbon footprints in the world. According to the 2015 UAE State of Energy Report, which was published by the government, as of 2010 the UAE produced almost 20 tonnes of CO2 emissions per capita. But Zamin says the UAE is on the right path. "I am so impressed by the vision of an oil producing country that actually looks at economic diversification and a low carbon future in the way that the UAE is doing," he says. The IRENA General Assembly, the World Future Energy Summit and the International Water Summit are all part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week. The World Future Energy summit runs until 19 January. Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week finishes on 21 January.
