Which Companies Will Win In The New Era Of Clean Energy How Does The Individual Investor Make Sense Of All The Competing Technologies This Book Offers An Insider S View Into The Companies And Personalities Working To Create Tomorrow S Energy Breakthroughs jus do it. Because of the timely nature of making investments, the fact that this book was published in late 2006 counts against it for specific stocks without doing further research Of course, anyone who invests in the stock market ought to be doing their own research on specific companies anyway It s a shame that this book wasn t updated, because the format makes it easy to understand the particular companies reviewed A top bar lists contact information, large scale investors, CEO, and trading market and symbol if public This is followed by a description of the company, its products, size, partnerships, etc The next section describes how to evaluate the company further before investing did their partnership come to fruition, was the prototype successful, did their expansion lead to overspending, etc Finally, Ulrich gives a thumbs up, thumbs down, or neutral rating along with his reasoning based upon 2006 conditions Each section is wrapped up with a review of the prospects for that sector and what to look for before investing Many private companies are listed, so that the investor can jump in on the ground floor should they go public Both domestic and foreign companies are covered.Technologies covered are biofuels, solar, wind power, geothermal, and minimally wave power, fuel cells and clean coal Interestingly enough, Uldrich also covers a few cleantech companies that save energy, for example by computerizing control of energy use for consumers, manufacturing superconductive wires, or by nanotechnology the development of super lightweight, super conductive materials to improve grid conductivity It s interesting to note that Uldrich s newer books and blogs focus upon nanotechnology, so it s likely that this has become a profitable sector.The author briefly addresses major players AKA safe investments who have invested in green energy, for example GE There is also a chapter on green mutual funds, including how to build your own fund The author also cites sources for current information the Wall Street Journal, Barron s, and The Economist, natch He also lists some websites, though all but the two best don t look current However, tapping in to Rob Day s and Michael Powers blogs looks beneficial for green investors.Though specific information is out of date, I do recommend that beginning green investors skim through this book to get an idea of the scope of technology and investment possibilities If some companies resonate with you, do some follow up work on the internet or with your stockbroker Then grab the WSJ, and or hop over the blogs mentioned above to monitor the current trends in the green market. Not impressed This kind of book gets dated quickly A book explaining technology in detail and how to research green companies would be useful. Reading this book than 10 years after it s published it s pretty funny I didn t read every business description but I read the start of each chapter talking about different energy types Other then solar becoming very popular it seems like everything else mentioned in this book hasn t seen much light of day in the last decade.
