The global renewable energy market is set to hit $1.1 trillion by 2027.Countries across the world are looking for alternative, more renewable solutions to fossil fuels — Russia’s current war on Ukraine has expedited this process.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict might be driving oil prices higher, but that doesn’t mean fossil fuels won’t fizzle out as the world looks toward renewable energy to combat climate change.And the move away from fossil fuels to green alternatives might come sooner than originally anticipated.
Solar energy is not just growing at astounding rates, it could make investors a pile of money if they know where to look.
And there are even more major catalysts on the way for solar energy stocks.
Every March at Windsor Castle, leading global energy figures come together for the Windsor Energy Consultations.
Now, I'm not allowed to say who said what at the meeting this year. But that same rule also makes everyone be very frank in their discussions of energy.
This led to some very revealing discussions... and to agreement on the three most important shifts changing the energy sector right now.
Energy demand worldwide is increasing, even according to the latest IEA report. And historically, this is the quarter of the year where the demand figure is the weakest.
In fact, in each of the last several years, the IEA has cut demand estimates in the first quarter only to increase them multiple times later in the year.
It's very rare that D.C. policy decisions benefit both the oil and renewable energy sectors - traditionally, a benefit to one sector means a net harm for the other. That's because they're thought of as competitors for the same energy dollar.
But this deal is different: moves to shore up oil's decline have been the primary catalyst in a nice run up for renewables.
The energy sector has hardly escaped the new year's volatility. Good thing there are a number of ways to profit regardless of where oil goes.
You see, the "crunch" portrayed by some pundits as representing what oil is doing to the energy sector as a whole is not only overdone, it is also quite misleading.
The coming year promises to have energy markets move further into renewable energies.
But in the short term, contrasting results from this transition are emerging from both sides of the Irish Sea.
These developments are a reminder that the path toward greater reliance on wind and solar power will not be without short-term problems.
Energy "parity" has become quite the buzzword among energy analysts. As crude oil continues to hover around $45 a barrel, more interest is being shown in determining the net effective value of other energy sources.
But is there any real way to expand this notion of parity to identify incremental values between energy types? I'm on the verge of creating a new yardstick to do just this.
We’re now on the brink of a new development in renewable energy that will push this sector to the next level.
Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind have become fixtures of the current power grid. But for the next big advances to occur, the developmental process itself will take center stage.
And at the heart of this evolution lies a surprising, yet basic, element.
Over the past two weeks, word has emerged that moves toward energy efficiency are now the new darlings of European investment houses.
So what's holding the banks back from piling in en masse? The problem hardly seems to be raising the funds. Rather, the stumbling block is on the other end of the pipeline.
There's a new centerpiece for the accelerating move to renewable energy: Hawaii. The state has opted to go all out on alternative energy.
In May, its legislature overwhelmingly passed a plan to move to complete independence from fossil fuels for power generation.
But Hawaii has an unusual partner in moving away from its reliance on oil and natural gas - the U.S. military.
There are now rising indications that the Greek government and its creditors are going to avert a full-blown financial meltdown...
And this means there are some positive developments coming for the energy sector.
The Tesla Motors stock price dipped 1% this morning after Chief Executive Elon Musk unveiled a new suite of batteries designed to power homes and businesses.
Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) stock quickly raced to $231.77 after the opening bell, but retreated to $224 by 11 a.m.
The new division of the company will be called "Tesla Energy." The devices that will be installed in homes are coined "Powerwalls."
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.
