"Non-Oil" Energy Investment Is Exploding

Energy investment

"Non-oil" energy investments have become incredibly attractive. Smart money is pouring in. There are two keys to a winning "non-oil" investment approach.

One has to do with technical breakthroughs, while the other revolves around increasing the efficiency of the end-usage.

Both involve impressive profit opportunities. Here's everything you need to know...

The Solution to Alternative Energy's Biggest Roadblock

alternative energy

The alternative energy sector may have found a solution to its storage problem: the hydrogen battery.

Hydrogen's chief problem as an alternative energy source has always been the staggering price of delivery and transportation. But one company is making strides daily toward energy storage efficiency and price reduction.

We may be on the verge on something quite important for the entire energy sector. Here's everything you need to know...

Solar Power Is at a Tipping Point… and the Upshot Is Massive Profits

solar power

Solar power is leading the clean energy sector toward a tipping point. It's a brand new age for renewable energy. Gone are the days of requisite private investment for progress and innovation.

Because it's all about grid parity now - the point at which the cost of generating renewable energy suddenly becomes equal to its peers.

Which means the money is about to flood in. Here's what to expect...

Why Renewable Energy Is Attracting the Smart Money

Renewable energy is gaining momentum. In fact, global capital investment in clean energy rose 16% in 2014. Some have even dubbed the recent surge toward clean energy a "turning point."

After all, the total invested in renewable power jumped last year to $310 billion, just $17 billion shy of the all-time record in 2011.

So where do you think the "smart money" is headed?

Energy News Today Focused on Tense U.S.-China Solar Dispute

Solar Energy 2015

Money Morning's Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors made one of his regular appearances on CCTV last night and told viewers what to expect as tensions mount between the two nations.

He also discussed the current state of solar power in the United States, as well as the evolving relationship between solar energy and crude oil prices. Take a look...

How to Invest When an "Unstoppable Trend" Seems to Be Over

how to invest

Keith Fitz-Gerald knows how to invest in the energy sector. He says it's still minting millionaires.

But right now, with oil prices so low, mainstream investors are too caught up in the short term.

But current oil prices are actually a big "green light" for investment, not a big red stop sign -- here's how to play it...

This Country's Huge "Pricing Error" Will Send These Shares Soaring

Petro Production

"They couldn't possibly be that stupid"...

That's what my friend John, a London-based trader, said when I called him to verify that he saw what I was seeing on my own trading screens here in the wilds of Oregon.

It was Tuesday morning, November 4, and nearly everything in the energy complex was red.

November West Texas crude oil had dropped to $87.31/barrel, while Brent crude oil set a new two-year low at $91.53. Prices have since dropped to four-year lows of around $75 and $78, respectively.

They could fall even further - all because Saudis started another oil price war.

OPEC's largest oil producer had just announced that they were cutting oil prices for customers in the United States. The idea is to squeeze margins on U.S. shale production to where it's not profitable to produce.

Naturally, the Saudis fiercely deny the notion of a price war. But you don't have to be a genius to read between the lines.

The Saudis are very frustrated that they are losing control over pricing power they've held for decades. It's annoying them to no end. So, they're fighting back the only way they know how in an attempt to shift the balance back in their favor - by starting a price war with the United States. Unbelievably, they think they can win!

My take is that the Saudis have just made the biggest strategic "pricing error" in the kingdom's history. And, in doing so, they've actually cleared the way for America's shale energy boom and opened up a killer opportunity for this month's recommendation, in particular...

How to Invest in Oil Stocks as Prices Dip

The price of oil has slipped consistently since June, dragging most oil stocks down with it.

There's a new wrinkle in the energy markets. It revolves around what I call the "energy balance," and it's changing fast.

Think of it as a rebalancing of what currently exists. As you might have guessed, Asia is already playing a big role.

With the stock market now roaring back, investors are left to wonder whether the worst is behind us - or if there's more pain yet to come.

This Solar Power Breakthrough Will Be a Game Changer for the Sector

20141014-solar-power

The great stumbling block for solar power has always been storage. Conventional batteries, even the most high-tech ones, are inefficient, expensive, and don't last more than a few years.

But this week, researchers announced a breakthrough battery that's 20% more efficient and 25% cheaper than anything else on the market.

It’s the game changer that could finally make solar energy competitive…

How to Invest in the U.S. Navy's New Futuristic, Electricity-Powered Destroyer

20141006-how-to-invest

The newest Navy ships, such as the U.S.S. Zumwalt, are really giant electric generators.
