The "Holy Grail" of Energy Investing Is Going to Make You – and Your Grandchildren – Rich

Storage has long been one of energy's biggest "Holy Grails." It holds the key to every significant move into smart grids.

The reason is pretty simple: If energy cannot be stored, it is lost. Even transferring it from one type of energy to another is of little consequence unless you can reverse the erosion in the entire system.

It's called entropy, and it's a pervasive problem.

Now, there are a number of rather complicated ways to explain this, but let's keep ours straightforward. Over time, a system ends up having more energy than can be readily used. This is always the biggest drain on any attempt to structure a more efficient approach.

So the basic question becomes how to "save" all of this energy from being lost.

That's what's at the center of a breakthrough project I came across yesterday...

These Alternative Energy Stocks Will Soar on China's Rare Metals War

The prices of alternative energy stocks are at China's mercy right now. That's because for the past few years, China has been in a dispute with the United States, Europe, and Japan over its exports of rare earth metals. Though China has about 30% of world reserves of rare earths, it controls 80% of international production.

As this battle rages on, one thing is clear: The international solar industry could be turned on its side if China begins to hoard these metals and drive up their cost.

Of course, whenever there is market disruption like this, there is a profit opportunity...

Has Solar Power Finally Arrived?

Solar power has three major benefits: It's renewable, it's great for the environment, and it can be produced right here at home.

There has always been one big problem with solar, however – the price. For years now, its high cost has always been the biggest weapon in every critic's arsenal.

But a study released last week suggests this objection is about to fall by the wayside for good.

Here's what it means for the energy sector, and for investors.
