Investing In Energy

When the world is demanding more energy, the renewable energy sector has stepped in as an ideal source of alternate energy. It has become imperative in these times of greater energy needs that one opt for an alternate source. Renewable sources of energy can prove to be highly useful as they can be produced again on exhaustion. They also don’t lead to any kind of environment pollution.

The investment in the renewable energy sector has grown in recent times. This is owing to the high returns provided by the sector. This can go up to 650% and more. The world energy research is also helping investors in making some great investments in the sector. It is developing prospects in all the sectors like the wind, water and the sun.

The [deleted by admin] invests in technologies and practices that are sound. It also ensures high protection from the vulnerabilities in the market to the investors. The organization offers investors to invest in innovative energy solutions like the Partnerships and Deeded Direct Working Interest (DDWI).

Is this an encouragement to invest in energy ?
In the past the robbers of enron have showed what can happen when people are lured into invest , partly by their own greed.
It's a shame that the governments of the world do not allow their inhabitants to invest in their own supply , in a way as having a solar and or wind generator for their personal and or communial use , it's mostly blocked of by rules and silly regualtions.

But then the German government is planning to create 40 offshore wind farms , of this amount all ready 30 have full planning permission , if the investment is covered I don't know.
These will farms are expected to generate 30k jobs .

Energy is a good thing if it is not regulated by government bodys who dictate who and which of their friends cando or not do things ,

regards ,

I'm not sure what this thread is about really. The UK system for renewable energy works around ROCs (renewable obligation certificates) and a government-mandated %age RE that generators have to comply with or pay a penalty. (this has been called a stealth tax). The German system works on long-term subsidised Feed-In-Tariffs. The governments don't do the investment, they create these incentives for investors, which would otherwise favour instant-response generators (effectively coal or gas) in a competitive market. The free market is thus loaded/biassed by government interference. The German system seem to have produce more RE, but I'm not sure why... maybe they don't have as many NIMBY opposition groups to wind turbines...

I live in Lancashire. On the Fylde - a nice flat windy plain between Preston and Blackpool - there are ZERO wind turbines for instance. I have been to Northern Germany which is geographically similar and there are turbines in all directions as far as the eye can see. I understand that new Wind projects take many years to get through the planning process and even if they succeed, they may then have to wait for many more years to get a grid connection - why should our privatised national grid (set up with public money decades ago to support huge centralised generators) pay to create lots of new connections for new decentralised RE entrants? well who will pay? its a mess. Would you invest in wind under these circumstances? In the UK we have the possibility of a Severn Barrage generating 8% of the UK's electricity.. it has been discussed for decades... nothing has happened. It is hugely expensive, and opposition groups are lining up to object should it look like getting off the ground (destruction of wetlands and the like). Again - would you invest in something like this? The French equivalent at Rance (near St Malo) has been working like clockwork since the 60's. The RE technology may work, but the politics (in the UK at least) doesn't.

I tend to agree, I'll speak to the other mods.

After consultation, we decided to just get rid of the link.

So Hayes, if we've made a mistake deleting it, let us know you're not spam.
