Solar Energy 101: How to Invest in Renewable Energy
Solar energy is expected to grow some 6,000% over the next few decades, but that’s not a signal to rush in blind. That growth will come with a lot of huge swings up, and a lot of crashes down back to earth. In this week’s episode of Industry Focus: Energy, host Nick Sciple and Motley Fool contributor Jason Hall tell listeners what they need to know about the solar industry to invest without getting blown away by the volatility. Find out more about yieldcos, installers, manufacturers, and more -- along with a few stocks from all those segments that look pretty promising for the long-term. Also, the hosts look at recent developments out of OPEC, and explain how they’ll affect the oil industry in the next few years. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Subscribe to The Motley Fool's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/TheMotleyFool Or, follow our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/+MotleyFool/posts Inside The Motley Fool: Check out our Culture Blog! http://culture.fool.com Join our Facebook community: https://www.facebook.com/themotleyfool Follow The Motley Fool on Twitter: https://twitter.com/themotleyfool

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.

Breakthrough in renewable energy - VPRO documentary
It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

Bipasha Baruah: Global Trends in Women’s Employment in Renewable and Clean Energy
Concerns about environmental sustainability and fossil-fuel insecurity have motivated countries around the world to transition to clean energy supplies derived from renewables such as solar, hydro, bioenergy, geothermal and wind. Since producing and distributing renewables is more labor-intensive than producing and distributing fossil fuels, this shift is creating new employment opportunities and addressing energy poverty in remote or under-served communities. Although there is tremendous potential to create employment in renewable and clean energy almost everywhere in the world, there is growing concern that women, who are already underrepresented in the sector, will become even more marginalized if gender equity policies and programs are not proactively planned and implemented. This research project identifies opportunities and constraints for women’s employment in renewable and clean energy in industrialized, emerging and developing economies, and makes recommendations for optimizing their participation. Findings from this research reveal the need for broader socially progressive policies and shifts in societal attitudes about gender roles, for women to benefit optimally from employment in renewables. Restructuring paid employment in innovative ways while delinking social protection from employment status has been suggested in some industrialized countries as a way to balance gender equity with economic security and environmental protection. However, without more transformative social changes in gender relations, such strategies may just reinforce rather than subvert existing gender inequities, both in paid employment and in unpaid domestic labor. Grounded interventions to promote gender equality in renewable energy employment – especially within the context of increasing access to energy services for underserved communities – are more prevalent and better-established in some non-OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries. OECD countries might be well-advised to try to implement certain programs and policies that are already in place in some emerging economies. This event was co-sponsored by the Department of Women’s Studies and Feminist Research at Western University.

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?

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.
