Electric Car Manufacturers Should Look for Opportunity in Shakeout

December 5, 2011
By

 Over the course of the past 6 months, we’ve seen a number of electric car companies fall by the wayside.  Carlsbad, CA manufacturer Aptera, Inc  and Salinas, CA startup Green Vehicles, Inc are among recent bankruptcies.   The recent announcement by Ford that it is reducing the number of hybrids for its 2012 product mix could raise doubts about the future of this fledgling industry. 

However, in my opinion, Aptera either fall prey to the Solyndra scandal due to a slow down on funding as the investigation into the Department of Energy and the Obama Administration ramped up or, more likely, Aptera just didn’t have any high influence fund raisers for the Obama Administration affiliated to it so it didn’t get the VIP treatment necessary to facilitate the processing of their funding requests.

With the demise of these companies and others, there is opportunity as well.  Talent, technology and inventory is being freed up and, if the remainder of the field such as Li-ion Motors and EvCarCo have their act together, they will take steps to recruit the talent and acquire the technologies that have promise.  

One thing seems certain to us.  Electric vehicle technology is here to stay and, while the most focused and intelligent and frugal in the field will survive this fallout, the consolidation opportunities can provide a significant leg up for the best.  

Keep a close eye on this sector, the best is yet  to come.

High Gas Prices Fuel Electric Vehicle Sales as Leaf Sales Eclipse Volt

May 24, 2011
By

 

 Alternative Energy StocksDetroit (Alt Energy Stocks – 5/23/2011) – According to the Automotive News, General Motors (NYSE: GM) sold 493 Volts in April, representing a decline from the 608 sold in March. During that same period, Nissan (Pink Sheets: NSANF) increased deliveries of their all electric vehicle, the LEAF, from 298 in March to 573 in April 2011.  These latest reports directly contradict CNN’s boastful pronouncement in early February that the Volt was "kicking the Leaf’s butt."

What’s more, based upon deposits and indications of interest, Nissan is now predicting that it will deliver around 10,000 units in 2011.  While GM has boosted it’s production estimates for the Volt and its European cousin, the Opal Ampera to 16,000, it’s doubtful that those numbers will be able to equal Nissan’s figures for 2012.   GM says it plans to increase its Volt/Ampera production to 60,000 from earlier projections of 45,000 for 2012. 

Given the sharp increase in interest in the all electric vehicles being tied directly to the recent hikes in gasoline prices, it’s evident that Americans are not naturally inclined to make the transition from traditional gas powered cars to these new electric models but are rather driven to them out of necessity.   If gas prices return to the mid $2 and under, I think that the demand for both these cars will slack off again.  

It seems to me that the one alternative fuel vehicle that could satisfy both the desire to cut our dependence on foreign oil while maintaining the allure of a gas powered car, would be to shift from gasoline to natural gas powered vehicles.  With mass produced conversion kits, even existing gas models could be affordably converted over to natural gas, either LPG (liquid petroleum gas also called propane) or CNG (compressed natural gas).  

Think of natural gas as the fun way to wean ourselves off of our dependency on foreign oil.  In January a German auto tuner called G Power converted a BMW M5 Hurricane into what it’s billing as the world’s fastest natural gas powered car.  The car runs features a 5.0-liter V-10 that has a pair of superchargers attached.  Peak output is 660 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to rocket it from 0-62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and see it reach a top speed of 206 mph–1 mph more than a Corvette ZR-1 supercar.

G Power isn’t alone in introducing excitement into the alternative fuels automotive field.  An engineer named Bernie Towns, down in Texas wants to make his Mercedes-Benz SL 600 clean and green.  Earlier this year he converted his 2007 SL600 Mercedes-Benz roadster into a 5.5 liter twin-turbo V12 CNG-powered speedster he hopes will break the record for the fastest natural gas-fueled car around. Partnering with Chicago tuner Speedriven, this very unique SL 600 now develops around 800 bhp (597 kW / 811 PS) and over 1,000 lb-ft (1354 Nm) of torque and does the quarter-mile (402 meters) in 10 seconds.

But the record for the fastest CNG-powered car is still held by Hohenester Audi A4 tuned to over 700 bhp (522 kW / 710 PS) that was able to hit 364.6 km/h (226.55 mph) in 2009. Speedriven and Towns hope to break that with more horsepower and the help of a Mercedes-supplied aerodynamic kit fitted to this SL 600 that can safely hold speeds of up to 386 km/h (240 mph).

With the cost of natural gas running about half that of gasoline, and the simple fact that, if the major auto manufacturers set their mind to it, they could offer CNG powered cars at a only a small premium to their gas powered counterparts, it seems far more natural a shift than expecting people to move into cars that are priced like a mid range Mercedes but deliver a low end Kia amenities. 

Still, there’s probably not much of a future in the natural gas idea because the current administration wants to subsidize new industries that may take decades before they are financially self sustaining rather than promote common sense solutions that require a minimum of output but don’t offer nearly the promotional bang for the buck.

With the cost of natural gas running about half that of gasoline, and the simple fact that, if the major auto manufacturers set their mind to it, they could offer CNG powered cars at a only a small premium to their gas powered counterparts, it seems far more natural a shift than expecting people to move into cars that are priced like a mid range Mercedes but deliver a low end Kia amenities. 

Still, there’s probably not much of a future in the natural gas idea because the current administration wants to subsidize new industries that may take decades before they are financially self sustaining rather than promote common sense solutions that require a minimum of output but don’t offer nearly the promotional bang for the buck.

High Gas Prices Fuel Electric Vehicle Sales as Leaf Sales Eclipses Volt

May 24, 2011
By

 

 

Alternative Energy StocksDetroit (Alt Energy Stocks 5/23/2011) – According to the Automotive News, General Motors sold 493 Volts in April, representing a decline from the 608 sold in March. During that same period, Nissan increased deliveries of their all electric vehicle, the LEAF, from 298 in March to 573 in April 2011.  These latest reports directly contradict CNN’s boastful pronouncement in early February that the Volt was "kicking the Leaf’s butt."

What’s more, based upon deposits and indications of interest, Nissan is now predicting that it will deliver around 10,000 units in 2011.  While GM has boosted it’s production estimates for the Volt and its European cousin, the Opal Ampera to 16,000, it’s doubtful that those numbers will be able to equal Nissan’s figures for 2012.   GM says it plans to increase its Volt/Ampera production to 60,000 from earlier projections of 45,000 for 2012. 

Given the sharp increase in interest in the all electric vehicles being tied directly to the recent hikes in gasoline prices, it’s evident that Americans are not naturally inclined to make the transition from traditional gas powered cars to these new electric models but are rather driven to them out of necessity.   If gas prices return to the mid $2 and under, I think that the demand for both these cars will slack off again.  

It seems to me that the one alternative fuel vehicle that could satisfy both the desire to cut our dependence on foreign oil while maintaining the allure of a gas powered car, would be to shift from gasoline to natural gas powered vehicles.  With mass produced conversion kits, even existing gas models could be affordably converted over to natural gas, either LPG (liquid petroleum gas also called propane) or CNG (compressed natural gas).  

Think of natural gas as the fun way to wean ourselves off of our dependency on foreign oil.  In January a German auto tuner called G Power converted a BMW M5 Hurricane into what it’s billing as the world’s fastest natural gas powered car.  The car runs features a 5.0-liter V-10 that has a pair of superchargers attached.  Peak output is 660 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to rocket it from 0-62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and see it reach a top speed of 206 mph–1 mph more than a Corvette ZR-1 supercar.

G Power isn’t alone in introducing excitement into the alternative fuels automotive field.  An engineer named Bernie Towns, down in Texas wants to make his Mercedes-Benz SL 600 clean and green.  Earlier this year he converted his 2007 SL600 Mercedes-Benz roadster into a 5.5 liter twin-turbo V12 CNG-powered speedster he hopes will break the record for the fastest natural gas-fueled car around. Partnering with Chicago tuner Speedriven, this very unique SL 600 now develops around 800 bhp (597 kW / 811 PS) and over 1,000 lb-ft (1354 Nm) of torque and does the quarter-mile (402 meters) in 10 seconds.

But the record for the fastest CNG-powered car is still held by Hohenester Audi A4 tuned to over 700 bhp (522 kW / 710 PS) that was able to hit 364.6 km/h (226.55 mph) in 2009.

Now: Green and Alternative Energy Funding Resources

May 18, 2009
By

Alt-EnergyStocks.com is please to announce that we have affiliated ourselves with specialists in the field of funding green projects, including alternative energy products.   The newest member of the Alt-EnergyStocks.com team has extensive experience in arranging suitable funding packages for companies from start-ups and development stage companies seeking seed money to operational  companies generating and revenues but in need of additional and immediate funding.

If you have a Green or Alternative Energy project that requires funding, we can help. Most innovative creators have the experience and talent to develop the technology, plan their project and know how they want to market it. They have usually done most of their homework in these areas.

Financing is in a different arena.  It takes experience in finance to know what the lender is looking for. Most innovators, and creators of any project make some very simple mistakes when seeking finance.  Often they try and “get by” with a minimum request for investment and promise the Moon.  This is the farthest scenario that genuine lenders look for.  First of all, our four lenders are not interested in “buy-low-sell-high” deals.  They are looking for a well thought out business plan, an adequate amount of money in the request to actually make sure it has the necessary funding to survive with a substantial contingency to insure that there will be money to perpetuate the project in the event of unforeseen events that often present themselves during project development.  The return or ROI to the lender is pre-determined in the financial contract. In most if not all cases they are not looking to be a participant in the venture. They are looking for the best return they can get without undue risk. It is all numbers to them.  In most cases they don’t care if you’re turning lead into gold.  They just want the agreed upon return.

To prepare your project for my lenders requires that the equations be in the proper perspective. This takes time and experience and a good deal of mental focus-effort to make sure your project is ready to properly present to them.

We can help.  If you have, or know of a “green” project whether it is in the initials stages, an emerging growth company, or a Company that is already moving but needs more funding, please contact us and we will do an evaluation of your project and if qualified, forward it to our lenders.   From $500,000 to $500 million is available.

WAR!!! OPEC Declares Economic War on America

October 21, 2008
By

Alternative energy - OPEC gets pwnedSince June 18th, we have been saying that the development of alternative energy sources and becoming not only energy independent but also becoming an oil exporting nation is a matter of national security.  On that day, we predicted that oil would be at $20 a barrel by 2020.

If there was ever any doubt in your mind as to the accuracy of our statements or the true nature of OPEC’s place in the world, today’s news should clarify it once and for all time.  As oil was heading north toward $140 a barrel and beyond, the OPEC nations said they weren’t trying to make it that high.  This they said as they were relishing with glee at all the income that was flowing into their coffers as we simultaneously found ourselves being economically weakened as a country by the outflow of petro dollars.

We watched at an enriched Iran thumbed its nose at the world’s attempt to divert their intention to build nuclear weapons.  We watched as Russia found itself able to once again flex its military might thanks to its new found petro wealth.  We also watched as Hugo Chavez, a two bit thug dictator used the power of his rising petro fortune to try to buy some legitimacy on the international stage while building his military prior to beginning his imperialistic exploits.

Now as oil is hovering in the $70 range, higher than it was even last year and a far cry from the $42 range we saw in 2004, the major oil producers of the world are meeting to plot how to get the prices back to the levels where the power of industrial nations will be significanly diminished and they will be able to once again bask in the largess of that which conicidence and nature has blessed them.  No longer satisfied to simply be rich by sucking from nature and without creating anything of value, these tyrants,despots, madmen and power hungry former  KGB types find the rate at which they are amassing their wealth has fallen to from grotesque to merely obscene and they aren’t going to take it lying down.

The 13-nation global oil cartel — which includes Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Iran and Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela — will hold an emergency meeting in Vienna Friday to discuss the steep and rapid decline in oil prices.
“The era of cheap oil is finished,” Iran’s Oil Minister Gholamhossein Nozari boasted on Tuesday.  When asked what price Iran would want for its oil, Nozari declared, “The more the better.”

“A few member nations have voiced their intentions of pushing for a cut in production, including Qatar, Iran, as well as OPEC’s president Chekib Khelil, who said that output could be slashed by as much as 2 million barrels a day,” analysts for Raymond James & Associates told MarketWatch.com.

This is war, make no mistake about it and Iraq, with massive oil reserves will no doubt play an imporant role in this war.  What side they will come down on is anyones guess but being their liberators, we stand a better than even chance they won’t be wholly against Western society.

To win this war we must drive oil prices down, way down.  We must cripple Iran, Syria, Venezuela and Russia before they cripple us.  With cheap oil, the people of Iran can overthrow Ahmadinejad.  Without his petro dollars, Chavez will be an impotent dictator and will soon be replaced by someone who can inspire the Venezuelan people to begin to build a country supported by the labors of its people.

Without massive oil revenues Russia will once again be forced to confront their own corruption and decay and necessity will allow a new government to blossom, one more responsive to the talents and dreams of the Russian people.

Alternative energy - OPEC gets pwned

I Need You!

To win this war, America must continue and accelerate our drive to develop petroleum free transportation.  Between compressed natural gas, hybrid and plug in technologies and fuel cells we can completely transform the transportation industry and reduce our need for oil to the point where we will be able to start exporting both oil and the technology to free European and Asian countries from their dependence on oil as well.

In the interim, I do see opportunity for good fortune.  A trait among OPEC and other oil rich countries is that they are very self serving.  OPEC has stuck together just fine in good times because there was no need for anyone to break rank.  Now, with some petro budgets being stretched thanks to a human failing I call the “arrogance of wealth,” you can expect to see one or more of the OPEC countries agreeing but not living up to pledges to cut production.  Nothing like the need for a little extra cash to cause a price fixing cartel to crumble.  There are no friends among OPEC nations, just willing co-conspirators.  Watching Russia continue to pump oil and others while they are supposed to be honoring a pledge to reduce production will display to the world just how little character these pimps of mother earth have.

Look for speculators to take the price of oil back up a bit following the OPEC meeting if production limits are placed but don’t look for it to hold.

For now we Americans need to maintain our focus and our resolve.  Gasoline under $3 a gallon is no excuse to relax the imperative we felt when it was pushing toward $5.  We’ve got the little bastards more than scared and even on the run.  Think of this as the surge and push onward with “all of the above.”  We can win this war, we will win this war, we must win this war.

WAR!!! OPEC Declares Economic War on America

Alternative energy - OPEC gets pwnedSince June 18th, we have been saying that the development of alternative energy sources and becoming not only energy independent but also becoming an oil exporting nation is a matter of national security.  On that day, we predicted that oil would be at $20 a barrel by 2020.

If there was ever any doubt in your mind as to the accuracy of our statements or the true nature of OPEC’s place in the world, today’s news should clarify it once and for all time.  As oil was heading north toward $140 a barrel and beyond, the OPEC nations said they weren’t trying to make it that high.  This they said as they were relishing with glee at all the income that was flowing into their coffers as we simultaneously found ourselves being economically weakened as a country by the outflow of petro dollars.

We watched at an enriched Iran thumbed its nose at the world’s attempt to divert their intention to build nuclear weapons.  We watched as Russia found itself able to once again flex its military might thanks to its new found petro wealth.  We also watched as Hugo Chavez, a two bit thug dictator used the power of his rising petro fortune to try to buy some legitimacy on the international stage while building his military prior to beginning his imperialistic exploits.

T Boon Pickens – Wind, Natural Gas are Keys to Oil Independence

September 19, 2008
By

T. Boon Pickens is a geologist by trade, made his billions in oil and has been a lifelong promoter of both T Boon Pickens and his latest project.  Today a national TV campaign kicked off his plan to help rid America of its dependence on foreign oil.  Simply called “The Plan” and featured on his new website PickensPlan.com , Pickens details a two point plan he is asking Americans to support by pressuring the next President to get behind and Congress to get behind.

In The Plan, billed as a bridge to oil independence, Pickens proposes a $1 trillion investment in wind farms stretching the entire corridor from the Texas Panhandle to North Dakota, the sweet spot of America’s wind energy plus another $200 billion to build the infrastructure to deliver the electricity into America’s grid.

According to Pickens, this development would produce 20% of America’s electric needs and, despite it’s initial cost, would be a bargain compared to the $700 billion America sends out of the country each year buying oil.  The project would not only keep money at home, it would create tens of thousands and even hundreds of thousands of good jobs in cities and towns all across America’s mid section.

The second part of Picken’s plan is to launch a massive effort to switch our vehicles from gasoline to compressed natural gas (CNG). According to NGVAmerica, there are 7 million NGV’s (natural gas vehicles) in the world today but only 150,000 in America.

Pickens estimates by harnessing wind to supply the electric grid, we can redirect America’s natural gas resources toward replacing gasoline and diesel in our vehicles and, in the end, reduce our dependence on foreign oil by 30%.  With America’s current natural gas resources being twice the size of our oil reserves, and being considerably cheaper, the plan represents a meaningful initiative to bridge the gap and to bring America a lot closer to complete independence from foreign oil.

Although Pickens plan does not include the utilization of nuclear, geothermal or solar, neither does it preclude them from contributing to the overall thrust to free natural gas from its current use in electrical generation so that it can be redirected towards replacing gasoline and diesel in automotive and commercial transportation.

Being a man who walks the walk as well as talking the talk, Pickens is leading by example.  In May, his company, Mesa Power, ordered $2 Billion worth of wind turbines from GE as part of his plan to erect the Pampas Wind Project.  When completed, the project will be the world’s largest wind farm covering 400,000 acres and will generate enough electricity for more than 1.3 million homes.  The 4000 megawatt facility will produce the same amount of energy as four large coal fired plants or four modern nuclear power plants.

The Pickens Plan is yet another clear sign that a paradigm shift has taken place in America.  Although we are a long ways from being out of the woods, America is finally taking its first steps toward energy independence.  While long overdue, the old adage “better late than never” has never seemed more appropriate.

NOTE: We also proposed the redeployment of our natural gas resources in our article “Prediction: $20 oil by 2020″

OPEC Declares the World Hostage to Iranian Oil Supplies

September 19, 2008
By

Answering some questions as to who might be partially responsible for the skyrocketing oil prices and, in case someone hasn’t figured it out yet, revealing on whose side the OPEC countries stand, Abdalla Salem El-Badri, OPEC’s secretary general has declared that, despite the fact that Iran produces less than 5% of OPEC’s 87 million barrels of oil a day, there is no way the remaining OPEC members could make up for the loss of production should Iran choose to take its oil production off line in the event of a military conflict.  This, he claims, would result in an “unlimited” increase in the price of oil.

The announcement came in an interview following sessions where oil prices had softened, due in part to lowered estimates of future demand based upon the world’s reaction to rising oil prices.  The result was oil driving to record prices eclipsing $147 a barrel.

This statement significantly strengthens Iran’s position in its quest to possess nuclear weapons and effectively gives President Ahmadinejad a political knife to put at the world’s throat declaring “One false move and I’ll destroy all your economies. Put down your missiles or the SUV gets it!!”  And, in typical “B” movie style, OPEC is standing there… a bystander and supposedly our friend saying… “Oh dear, he means business… do what he says… do what he says…. he can do it”

Whether what El-Badri says is true or not, is open to debate. OPEC has never been known for it’s rigorous allegiance to the truth.  Regardless, the fact that he has chosen this time to make this point, and the way he has chosen to make it, underscores and highlights the critical nature of our dependence on foreign oil and just how essential it is that we break this unhealthy addiction .

Understanding that, whatever the actual situation is regarding the rest of OPEC’s ability to cover any shortfall caused by a defiant Iran shutting down production, the fact that OPEC came out today and addressed the issue the way they did, also leaves little doubt as to their position on the matter. In the simplest terms, OPEC is not a friend to the western world. In our “them” vs “us” world, OPEC clearly is a “them” and, now that we officially have a hostage situation, appropriate urgency is required.

There is, however, good news in the face of this ongoing crisis.  Every outward indication confirms that the world’s oil consuming countries have moved oil independence nearer or to the very top of their individual “to do” lists and people are working over time and more to break free from our oil addiction.  As if to emphasize the point, Toyota just reported that one of its engineers in Japan literally worked himself to death trying to get ready for the debut of a new Camry hybrid the company is working on.

This societal shift is in direct contrast to America’s response to previous oil crises in 1973 and 1979. Mirroring my previous statements, GM chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner just confirmed that customers didn’t want fuel-efficient cars back when gas wasn’t so expensive.  Now we do and the world’s automakers are putting on a full court press to deliver. Rest assured, they will.  They always give us what we think we want, even if it isn’t good for us.  I sometimes wonder if they learned that from the tobacco companies or if it simply is the law of supply and demand.

People have already changed their driving habits; motor scooter sales are at record levels, people are walking and riding bikes at an unprecedented pace and oil consumption has already begun to decline.  People have also begun drinking closer to home and driving slower so an added plus is that auto deaths have also declined.

What’s more, during 2007, there were a total of 5 applications for the construction of 8 nuclear power plants. So far in 2008, there have been 13 applications for 19 new nuclear reactors submitted to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  A total of 11 new units have already been approved and docketed since the first of the year. The shift to energy independence has begun in earnest and it doesn’t look like there is going to be any stopping it now.

Coincidently, at the same time as Iran is rattling its sabers and using its oil production as a military shield, with the help of the OPEC countries, Iraq has put out a request for bids to qualified producers to join with them in developing their massive oil reserves. Iraqi oil reserves are currently estimated at 112 billion barrels, second only to Saudi Arabia, and it’s estimated that, since much of the country remains unexplored, there could easily be another 100 billion barrels waiting to be discovered.  A peaceful Iraq, anxious to rebuild its infrastructure and its country and to share some of the fiscal stability enjoyed by some of its oil rich neighbors, could easily prove the key to bringing an eventual end to this oil crisis and to restore some degree of sanity to the world’s economies.

Day by day, the public outcry for solutions, starting with more exploration and development of the prime targets offshore, in ANWR and elsewhere is beginning to drown out the liberal voices whose only idea is to conserve usage and to tax the oil companies and the radical environmentalists who are more concerned about a caribou than a stable supply of domestic oil.

At the same time, America and its investors are turning their focus on the only hope for an energy independent America, alternative energy and alternative energy stocks.  The resourcefulness and determination of American industry and its entrepreneurs represents the future of the American energy scene and a carefully developed portfolio with a diverse selection of both giants, mid sized and emerging technologies could easily provide an investor with exceptional, if not spectacular returns in the years to come.

Congress is Playing a Deadly Game of “Chicken” With America’s Future

September 19, 2008
By
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid

While Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and with the tacit approval of Barack Obama, are blocking attempts to bring an energy bill to a vote that would allow US companies to drill on the outer continental shelf, where China and others are already beginning to tap the vast reserves available to us, the Republicans are likewise blocking Senate Bill S.3335 which would extend up to $20 Billion in renewable energy tax credits, facilitating investment in  wind and solar power, clean coal, plug-in electric vehicles and a variety of others.

Although there may be legitimate objections to some of the taxes the Democrats are proposing to offset the cost of these credits, the real reason this legislation is being blocked is to try to force the Democrats to allow the energy bill currently being quashed by the Dems to a vote.

John Cornyn (R-Texas)

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas confirmed this in a not-so-subtle statement when he said his party sees a “need to dispose of the pending energy bill to help bring down the price of gas at the pump before turning to other matters.”

Considering that Congress just fast-tracked a bill that will provide $3.9 Billion in relief to 400,000 of the stupidest homeowners in America; folks who ignored common sense and either refinanced at impossible rates knowing there was a day of reckoning coming so they could buy more stuff or bought far more home than they knew they could afford hoping for the greater fool theory to hold true, while simultaneously trying to save the collective asses of a bunch of low-life profiteers who cooked up the sub-prime mortgage scheme to line their pockets at the expense of millions of ignorant and greedy consumers, I would be even more hard pressed to believe that concern about the offsets to these tax credits is really the issue here.
The Democrat’s argument about being plenty of land available to drill on already is as ignorant and short sighted as the Republican’s argument about not liking the tax offsets.

A simple way to clarify the Dem’s inability to understand the concept regarding the millions of acres they claim the US oil companies should be focusing on instead of the outer continental shelf would be to tell them to imagine they were at a meeting with former President Clinton. After the meeting, President Clinton suggested the two of you head downtown to pick up some chicks for a little casual sex.  You suggest that there are about a half dozen night clubs within walking distance that the two of you could explore to which he replies, “I explored all those just before the meeting and the places are dry, nothing worth considering there, trust me, I really gave them a hard look… but there is a spot downtown that I know has a lot of real hotties… that’s where we need to go to get lucky.”  Well, it’s the same with the oil companies, except they’re not trying to … well you get the idea.

There is a lot at stake with S.3335. The entire alternative energy industry could be irreparably harmed if the investment tax credits are not extended.  There will be huge losses of investment capital already at risk in these technologies along with cutting off the flow of badly needed investments to facilitate America’s transition from an oil dependent society to a fully self reliant country that has mastered the use of alternative energies.

Greg Wetstone of the American Wind Energy Association said Tuesday that his industry alone risks losing $11 billion in investment and 75,000 jobs if the tax credit expires next year.

Last month more than 300 high-tech and manufacturing companies warned Congress that failure to act quickly “will bring investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects to a standstill.”

A Less Dangerous Game of Chicken

A Less Dangerous Game of Chicken

This is a very deadly game of “chicken” the politicians are playing and the stakes are far to high.  We are dealing not just with matters of ecology here. Whether you believe in global warming or not is irrelevant at this point when it comes to these bills.  This is a matter of National Security pure and simple and that is something that should not be trifled with. America is currently sending $700 billion, primarily to the middle east, every year and we’re borrowing the money from China to do it. We are indirectly funding terrorists while bankrupting America at the same time.

It is unconscionable for Pelosi, Reid and Obama to stand in the way of America increasing its productivity by joining China off America’s shores and its equally unconscionable for the Republicans to hold alternative energy investment tax credits hostage to force the Democrats into capitulating and allowing the offshore bill to come to a vote.

We don’t need one bill or the other, we need both passed and we need them passed now.  America needs more oil now and we need to become oil independent as quickly as possible.  These two bills, combined, facilitate that end.  This would be a great time to call your Congressman and demand they represent Americans for a change.

Lithium-ion Battery Breakthrough – Nissan Doubles Capacity While Reducing Size

September 19, 2008
By

Nissan Motor Company (Nasdaq: NSANY) recently previewed its latest all-electric plug-in car, an electrified version of the “Cube”, a popular model that Nissan sells in Japan, modified to carry three lithium ion batteries under the floor and an 80kW motor and inverter.  The news of this event was carried widely by many news sources but universally, the stories all focused on Nissan and the car it was unveiling and largely relegated the real news to a paragraph.   Still, we were duly impressed by the real news and how it will effect alternative energy stocks in general and lithium-ion stocks specifically.  The real news, mentioned in the same articles, is about an advancement by Nissan in their battery technology.

Alternative Energy Stocks - Lithium-ion stocks

Nissan's "Cube" Electric Vehicle

We are convinced, however, this is actually the meat of the story so we will to cover it here. The latest version of Nissan’s plug-in electric car features a lithium-ion battery, manufactured by Automotive Energy Supply Corp. (AESC), with twice the capacity of Nissan’s previous battery yet it only occupies 75% of the space.

In an industry that is on the verge of transitioning from petroleum to electric or hybrid power, and where the battery is currently the weakest link, this is incredible news.  In the recent CNBC-TV show “Saving GM,” engineers acknowledged that they were ready with their new plug-in Chevy Volt except for the battery yet had confidence that technology would advance sufficiently in the next year and a half to put the Volt in showrooms across America on time.

Batteries used in Nissan prototypes between around 1995 and 2002 were cylindrical, but that meant the entire cell would sometimes need to be redesigned if engineers needed to make the batteries just a few millimeters thinner.  In order to accelerate the progress, in April 2007 Nissan announced that they were joining forces with NEC and their affiliated company, NEC Tokin and forming a joint venture company for the specific purpose of advancing the battery-side technology for their future plug-in cars.

AESC Lithium-ion Battery

AESC Lithium-ion Battery

The joint venture dubbed  “Automotive Energy Supply Corp.” launched operations in May 2008 with a commitment from Nissan of $110.8 million over the next three years.  The result, today’s next generation lithium ion battery, is the first major advancement produced by AESC but clearly reminds the world that this technology is still at the stage where very significant progress can be made in a very short period of time.

Like many technologies, early advancements can be grand in scale while later refinements tend to add less to performance.  At some point in the future, it may be that gaining another 5% capacity while maintaining the size will be considered significant but if AESC can double capacity and, at the same time shrink the size of a battery by 25%, then this tells us that the technology has a long way to go and suggests great promise for the future of the industry.

An additional advantage of the new generation battery is that the group is experimenting with laminated cells that are stacked on top of each other inside batteries. If the dimensions of the battery need to be changed its easy to add or remove a few of the cells, which are just a few millimeters thick. The laminated batteries also run cooler so they are much less likely to overheat.

Apparently, reports that GM engineers expressed confidence that the lithium-ion battery technology would catch up with the rest of their development in time for a model year 2010 introduction of the Volt are greatly clarified given this latest announcement.

So, regardless of how exciting it was to see Nissan officially coming to the party with the preview of their latest EV, for us, the true excitement lies in the sub-plot of how lithium-ion technology now seems to be on the fast track with Nissan and AESC taking the stage as perhaps the front runners in advancing this technology to the point where, within the next few years, standard sized vehicles like a Toyota Camry or a Ford Fusion can drive 150 miles on a single charge at freeway speeds.  If the Chinese and Arabs haven’t already purchased controlling interest in America by that time, we should be in pretty good stead.  In the interim, I suggest we all check the inflation of our tires.

The Case for Nuclear Power Made Stronger by Weakness Within the Power Grid

September 19, 2008
By

Alternative Energy Stocks - Wind Energy StocksWhile Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama continues to loudly beat the alternative energy drum, which we appreciate and acknowledge, by staunchly opposing nuclear energy and resisting discussions regarding expanded offshore drilling, his judgment is, once again, is proving to be as flawed as it is shallow.  Both nuclear and offshore drilling are essential components in America’s quest for oil independence and clean energy.

While it’s true that America needs to focus on advancing all the alternative energies as rapidly as possible, be it solar, wind, wave or geothermal, it’s equally true that advancing these technologies alone will not be sufficient to replace even natural gas on America’s electrical grid (so it can be used as an alternative for cars, trucks and buses) for many years to come. Surprisingly, the weak link isn’t even the technologies. It’s something far less glamorous, far less politically appealing and far more daunting. It’s America’s antiquated power grid itself that’s the problem.

As solar and wind energy technologies move closer and closer to achieving grid parity (the point where it costs the same to make electricity from a given technology as it does to make it from a coal fired plant) problems are already beginning to crop up as new wind farms begin to tax the grid to the point where it can no longer accommodate the electrical traffic being put into the system.  This forces these producers to shut down operations when the grid becomes too congested. Simply put, since solar and wind generators, and even geothermal plants are usually located in sparsely populated areas, the infrastructure necessary to get the electricity from the source to the high population areas of demand,  is either insufficient or non-existent.

Alternative Energy Stocks - Power GridAmerica needs an energy super-highway, an upgraded infrastructure that will be able to transport this alternatively generated electricity efficiently from the source, be it wind, solar or geothermal. Without it all the windmills and solar arrays will be useless.

For example, Maple Ridge Wind farm invested $320 million building approximately 200 wind turbines in upstate New York. Today, at times, regional electric lines have been so congested that Maple Ridge has been forced to shut down even with a brisk wind blowing.

Gabriel Alonso, chief development officer of Horizon Wind Energy, the company that operates Maple Ridge, comments that, by comparison,  in parts of Wyoming, a turbine could make 50 percent more electricity than the identical model built in New York or Texas. “The windiest sites have not been built, because there is no way to move that electricity from there to the load centers,” he said.

It will cost about $60 billion to build this energy superhighway but the technology already exists. In fact American Electric Power already operates 2,100 miles of this type of power lines. The problem with making this a reality is that this essential infrastructure is that it involves interstate cooperation as the line is built through state after state.  States are loathe to cooperate with each other not because of what it might do for them but what small advantage they might lose in the battle for cheap power and profits.
America must build this energy superhighway and they have to get started now if we are ever going to become energy independent.  This is going to take leadership and someone willing to make enemies in order to serve America’s future. Whose up to the task?  That remains to be seen but you better make sure the person you vote for will make it happen.

In the interim, America needs to expand its commitment to nuclear power and to expanding our domestic oil production until we can get this basic problem of infrastructure resolved.  Nuclear power can be built near the existing energy backbone feeding major metropolitan centers and won’t require this new energy superhighway.

We need to put aside all our differences and work together to get this energy superhighway built so that America can properly utilize the rapidly advancing alternative energy technologies. You’ve taken the time to learn about alternative energies, now spend a little time getting involved with the very center of this technology, the energy superhighway.  Just Google “energy superhighway” to get started.

The Case for Nuclear Power Made Stronger by Weakness Within the Power Grid

August 29, 2008
By

Alternative Energy Stocks - Wind Energy StocksWhile Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama continues to loudly beat the alternative energy drum, which we appreciate and acknowledge, by staunchly opposing nuclear energy and resisting discussions regarding expanded offshore drilling, his judgment is, once again, is proving to be as flawed as it is shallow.  Both nuclear and offshore drilling are essential components in America’s quest for oil independence and clean energy.

While it’s true that America needs to focus on advancing all the alternative energies as rapidly as possible, be it solar, wind, wave or geothermal, it’s equally true that advancing these technologies alone will not be sufficient to replace even natural gas on America’s electrical grid (so it can be used as an alternative for cars, trucks and buses) for many years to come. Surprisingly, the weak link isn’t even the technologies. It’s something far less glamorous, far less politically appealing and far more daunting. It’s America’s antiquated power grid itself that’s the problem.

As solar and wind energy technologies move closer and closer to achieving grid parity (the point where it costs the same to make electricity from a given technology as it does to make it from a coal fired plant) problems are already beginning to crop up as new wind farms begin to tax the grid to the point where it can no longer accommodate the electrical traffic being put into the system.  This forces these producers to shut down operations when the grid becomes too congested. Simply put, since solar and wind generators, and even geothermal plants are usually located in sparsely populated areas, the infrastructure necessary to get the electricity from the source to the high population areas of demand,  is either insufficient or non-existent.

Alternative Energy Stocks - Power GridAmerica needs an energy super-highway, an upgraded infrastructure that will be able to transport this alternatively generated electricity efficiently from the source, be it wind, solar or geothermal. Without it all the windmills and solar arrays will be useless.

For example, Maple Ridge Wind farm invested $320 million building approximately 200 wind turbines in upstate New York. Today, at times, regional electric lines have been so congested that Maple Ridge has been forced to shut down even with a brisk wind blowing.

Gabriel Alonso, chief development officer of Horizon Wind Energy, the company that operates Maple Ridge, comments that, by comparison,  in parts of Wyoming, a turbine could make 50 percent more electricity than the identical model built in New York or Texas. “The windiest sites have not been built, because there is no way to move that electricity from there to the load centers,” he said.

It will cost about $60 billion to build this energy superhighway but the technology already exists. In fact American Electric Power already operates 2,100 miles of this type of power lines. The problem with making this a reality is that this essential infrastructure is that it involves interstate cooperation as the line is built through state after state.  States are loathe to cooperate with each other not because of what it might do for them but what small advantage they might lose in the battle for cheap power and profits.
America must build this energy superhighway and they have to get started now if we are ever going to become energy independent.  This is going to take leadership and someone willing to make enemies in order to serve America’s future. Whose up to the task?  That remains to be seen but you better make sure the person you vote for will make it happen.

In the interim, America needs to expand its commitment to nuclear power and to expanding our domestic oil production until we can get this basic problem of infrastructure resolved.  Nuclear power can be built near the existing energy backbone feeding major metropolitan centers and won’t require this new energy superhighway.

We need to put aside all our differences and work together to get this energy superhighway built so that America can properly utilize the rapidly advancing alternative energy technologies. You’ve taken the time to learn about alternative energies, now spend a little time getting involved with the very center of this technology, the energy superhighway.  Just Google “energy superhighway” to get started.

End of Non-Recession Powers Alternative Energy Stocks and the Dow Again

August 29, 2008
By

The mysterious recession being searched for by Democrats everywhere once again eluded capture as the Commerce Department released a report saying that the US gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a 3.3 percent annual rate, well beyond economist’s expectations. In response the Dow continued its upward movement adding 1.85% to end the day at 11,715.18. Oil continued to remain volatile with uneasiness as Tropical Storm Gustav becomes more ominous by the day and threatens to grow into a major hurricane as it works its way through the Gulf oil fields.  Oil closed the day at $115.55.  Still, with the Labor Day weekend approaching, stocks lacked the movement we normally see.

End of Non-Recession Powers Alternative Energy Stocks and the Dow Again

August 29, 2008
By

The mysterious recession being searched for by Democrats everywhere once again eluded capture as the Commerce Department released a report saying that the US gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a 3.3 percent annual rate, well beyond economist’s expectations. In response the Dow continued its upward movement adding 1.85% to end the day at 11,715.18. Oil continued to remain volatile with uneasiness as Tropical Storm Gustav becomes more ominous by the day and threatens to grow into a major hurricane as it works its way through the Gulf oil fields.  Oil closed the day at $115.55.  Still, with the Labor Day weekend approaching, stocks lacked the movement we normally see.

Alternative Energy Stocks Rise With Dow as Gustav Bumps Oil

August 27, 2008
By

Solar and Biofuel were the contrarians again today but in the opposite direction as the rising Dow tide lifted all the alternative energy stocks except for solar and biofuel which found themselves slipping ‘neath the metaphorical waves to close down.  The Dow, propelled by strengthening energy stocks due to rising oil prices thanks to Gustavian angst caught much of the market in its current. Oil rose a point to $116.27 on supply concerns as Hurricane Gustav aimed its sights at the Gulf of Mexico providing big oil with yet another opportunity to demonstrate that hurricanes do not an environmental disaster make and that increased offshore drilling does not pose a material risk to the environment but rather a viable adjunct to an aggressive policy of alternative energy development on the path to foreign oil independence.

Uranium energy Corp (Amex: UEC) was another strong performer today as its stock climbed 2.2% to close at $1.86.

GEOTHERMAL STOCKS – Visit our Geothermal Stock Page – Your Source for geothermal stocks

LITHIUM-ION STOCKS – Visit our Lithium-ion Stock Page – Your source for Lithium-ion stocks

Lithium-ion stocks also managed to finish up for the day as advancers edged out decliners 6 to 5.

Nova Biosource Fuels (Amex: NBF) was one of the more noteworthy decliners as its stock dropped 6.06% to close at $.31.

New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc (Amex: GNB) was hot on NBF’s tail with its stock closing down 5.66% to finish the day at $4.67.

Alternative Energy Stocks Rise With Dow as Gustav Bumps Oil

August 27, 2008
By

Solar and Biofuel were the contrarians again today but in the opposite direction as the rising Dow tide lifted all the alternative energy stocks except for solar and biofuel which found themselves slipping ‘neath the metaphorical waves to close down.  The Dow, propelled by strengthening energy stocks due to rising oil prices thanks to Gustavian angst caught much of the market in its current. Oil rose a point to $116.27 on supply concerns as Hurricane Gustav aimed its sights at the Gulf of Mexico providing big oil with yet another opportunity to demonstrate that hurricanes do not an environmental disaster make and that increased offshore drilling does not pose a material risk to the environment but rather a viable adjunct to an aggressive policy of alternative energy development on the path to foreign oil independence.

Alternative Energy Stocks Down With a Sagging Dow

August 27, 2008
By

Solar and Biofuel were the only alternative energy stock sectors to close to the upside as most sectors fell in sympathy with the Dow’s 2.08% drop today on banking worries and concern regarding international industrial growth. Oil traded up 0.5% at $115.20 today as OPEC floated it was discussing cutting production. This further confirms the urgent nature of our need to become independent of foreign oil sooner rather than later.

ARCHER DANIELS MIDLAND – Teams with Deere and Monsanto on new Biofuel

Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) is trading up .62% after the August 26, 2008 joint  announcement by the company along with Deere & Company (NYSE: DE ) and Monsanto Company (NYSE: MON) that they have agreed to collaborate on research to explore technologies and processes to turn crop residues into feed and bioenergy products.

The companies will work together to identify environmentally and economically sustainable methods for the harvest, storage and transport of corn stover — the stalks, leaves and cobs of corn plants. Corn stover can be used in feed for animals, as biomass to generate steam and electricity or as a cellulosic feedstock for biofuel production.

By creating feed and energy products from crop byproducts, farmers can produce more products without farming more acres, and increase the value derived from each acre.

Stover is usually left on the field, where, in proper amounts, it helps reduce soil erosion and build up soil organic matter. A 170-bushel-per-acre corn crop, which was the average last year in Iowa, also produces about four dry tons of stover. The United States Department of Agriculture forecasts that in 2008, farmers will harvest 12.3 billion bushels of corn, resulting in approximately 290 million tons of stover.

A 170-bushel-per-acre corn crop, which was the average last year in Iowa, also produces about four dry tons of stover. The United States Department of Agriculture forecasts that in 2008, farmers will harvest 12.3 billion bushels of corn, resulting in approximately 290 million tons of stover.

America Embraces Oil Independence While Congress Plays Political Games

August 22, 2008
By
First Prototype Saudi Car

Prototype Saudi Car - The Dromodary XG900

Recent reports that Saudi Arabia is actively considering ways to diversify their economy to be less dependent on oil for revenues suggests that the leader of the OPEC cartel have realized that the civilized world has tired of being dependent on these oppressive, uncaring tyrants and basically valueless residents of the planet and have redoubled their commitment to oil independence with near vigilante enthusiasm.

Getting the industrialized countries of the world to actually focus on making the fundamental changes necessary to move from petro-dependent energy to alternative energies has not been without its cost.  By embracing our oil addicted status quo for the past 20 years, America and, to a lesser degree, Europe have inadvertently funded middle eastern countries that in turn have spawned, then funded global Islamic Fundamentalist terrorism.

By ignoring the warnings of an impending oil crisis and not responding sooner, we also managed to fund the rebuilding of the Russian military to the point where they have once again rattled their swords and ventured forth as the imperialists they have always been at heart.

Thankfully, the transformation is finally upon us. The signs of this change in attitude are becoming more commonplace and highlight that the world’s transition to alternative energy  has shifted from being an unwelcomed “have to” to a genuine “want to” and a “must”.

The evidence is everywhere. American industry has historically dragged its feet in implementing mandated changes that are not supported by a bottom line payoff.  In previous years, the EPA has had to drag corporations screaming and kicking into environmental compliance. By contrast, not only are corporations implementing alternative energy solutions toward powering their facilities through their own initiative, utilities throughout America have tossed aside their government mandated timetables for alternative energy conversion and implemented accelerated programs which will bring them into compliance with new standards well in advance of the deadlines.

Pacific Gas & Electric Company, (NYSE: PCN) is a company that has come under criticism as recently as 2007 for only producing 12% of its electricity from renewable sources.  This is despite producing 24% of its power from nuclear plants and another 20% from hydroelectric generation.  California has placed a mandate on electric utilities that they have contracts in place to derive 20% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2010. As recently as the first of the year, opinion was still split whether the company could meet these most challenging goals.

But times have changed. PG&E became more determined than ever to not only meet but to surpass the mandate.  Their outreach program combined with the alternative energies’ renewed efforts to bring their technologies forward has had a significant impact on PG&E’s progress.

OptiSolar Photovoltaic Panels

Last week  PG&E announced that it had contracted with OptiSolar and SunPower Corporation (Nasdaq: SWPR) to buy a total of 800MW of power from huge solar facilities slated to begin delivering power in 2010 and at full power by 2012.  This announcement brings the total renewable electricity PG&E has contracted to receive to 3600MW.  This brings their total commitment to renewable resources to 24% of their projected energy sales. Rather than falling short as predicted, PG&E has already met their mandated requirements more than a year ahead of schedule.

I spoke with Jennifer Zerwer environmental news representative for PG&E.  She told me that PG&E has been very aggressive in searching out renewable resources and it was this commitment to renewable energies coupled with significant advances in the various technologies that have allowed them to ink this many deals this quickly.

There is, however, one outstanding caveat which could upend this entire process.  That would be Congress’ failure to renew the incentive tax credits for renewable energy. In PGE’s recent press release announcing the solar deal that caught the attention of the nation by virtue of its size relative to all previous developments, the most important sentence in the entire agreement was “Both projects are contingent upon the extension of the federal investment tax credit for renewable energy and processes to expedite transmission needs.”

America needs to be off the oil nipple and the American public wants to buy petro-free cars and trucks.  At the same time, its evident that America’s utilities want to buy renewable energy.  Still, as rapidly as these technologies are developing, many emerging companies could be irreparably damaged if Congress doesn’t renew the investment tax credits which help fuel development and will allow these technologies to gain economic parity in time to save our country.

This brings us to the one area in the United States where a sense of urgency regarding oil independence isn’t being demonstrated.  The halls of Congress is where we see political posturing rating a higher priority than either the price at the pump or our national security.  The Democrats in Congress adjourned on August 1st over Republican objections without extending the investment tax credits or approving offshore oil drilling.

Considering that the investment tax credits represent only $18 billion in lost tax revenues, it’s criminal to tie this bill to any clause that will hamper its passing in exchange for political gain.  For example, attaching a windfall tax on oil companies will assure Republican opposition and allow one to reap political hay in the process but is totally counterproductive to America’s best interests; the loser here is America and the American people.  Congress wastes more than that annually on pork barrel projects and earmarks to fund various meaningless programs like studying the sexual habits of a South African ground squirrels.

American’s must make it a national priority to advance alternative energy technologies as if our very lives depend upon it, because they do.  At the same time we must aggressively push to produce more oil from every and any source available not only to bridge the gap of America’s conversion to a petro-free or petro-lite life, but to help drive down the price of oil and weaken our enemies in the process.  America must be fully independent of foreign oil and the value of oil must be reduced to a pittance for America to be safe.

The shift is underway, it’s being read in the news on a daily basis now and it’s being lived in each of our lives as we change our driving habits and our taste in cars. We mustn’t let up, this crisis extends beyond the cost of gas at the pump and of our electric bills, this is about protecting the American way of life from petro-rich countries that wish us ill.

If asked what you can do, we have a very practical and simple answer. Invest in the alternative energy companies of your choice based upon your tolerance for risk and contact your Congress person and let them know you demand they put aside political posturing and do their job of defending our country and supporting our independence from foreign oil.  Tell them to get back to work and to start supporting our transition to alternative energies by extending the tax investments credits now and by approving the offshore drilling package currently being held hostage by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the Democrats.

America needs to be off the oil nipple and the American public wants to buy petro-free cars and trucks.  At the same time, its evident that America’s utilities want to buy renewable energy.  Still, as rapidly as these technologies are developing, many emerging companies could be irreparably damaged if Congress doesn’t renew the investment tax credits which help fuel development and will allow these technologies to gain economic parity in time to save our country.

This brings us to the one area in the United States where a sense of urgency regarding oil independence isn’t being demonstrated.  The halls of Congress is where we see political posturing rating a higher priority than either the price at the pump or our national security.  The Democrats in Congress adjourned on August 1st over Republican objections without extending the investment tax credits or approving offshore oil drilling.

Considering that the investment tax credits represent only $18 billion in lost tax revenues, it’s criminal to tie this bill to any clause that will hamper its passing in exchange for political gain.  For example, attaching a windfall tax on oil companies will assure Republican opposition and allow one to reap political hay in the process but is totally counterproductive to America’s best interests; the loser here is America and the American people.  Congress wastes more than that annually on pork barrel projects and earmarks to fund various meaningless programs like studying the sexual habits of a South African ground squirrels.

American’s must make it a national priority to advance alternative energy technologies as if our very lives depend upon it, because they do.  At the same time we must aggressively push to produce more oil from every and any source available not only to bridge the gap of America’s conversion to a petro-free or petro-lite life, but to help drive down the price of oil and weaken our enemies in the process.  America must be fully independent of foreign oil and the value of oil must be reduced to a pittance for America to be safe.

The shift is underway, it’s being read in the news on a daily basis now and it’s being lived in each of our lives as we change our driving habits and our taste in cars. We mustn’t let up, this crisis extends beyond the cost of gas at the pump and of our electric bills, this is about protecting the American way of life from petro-rich countries that wish us ill.

If asked what you can do, we have a very practical and simple answer. Invest in the alternative energy companies of your choice based upon your tolerance for risk and contact your Congress person and let them know you demand they put aside political posturing and do their job of defending our country and supporting our independence from foreign oil.  Tell them to get back to work and to start supporting our transition to alternative energies by extending the tax investments credits now and by approving the offshore drilling package currently being held hostage by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the Democrats.

America Embraces Oil Independence While Congress Plays Political Games

August 22, 2008
By

Recent reports that Saudi Arabia is actively considering ways to diversify their economy to be less dependent on oil for revenues suggests that the leader of the OPEC cartel have realized that the civilized world has tired of being dependent on these oppressive, uncaring tyrants and basically valueless residents of the planet and have redoubled their commitment to oil independence with near vigilante enthusiasm.

Getting the industrialized countries of the world to actually focus on making the fundamental changes necessary to move from petro-dependent energy to alternative energies has not been without its cost.  By embracing our oil addicted status quo for the past 20 years, America and, to a lesser degree, Europe have inadvertently funded middle eastern countries that in turn have spawned, then funded global Islamic Fundamentalist terrorism.

By ignoring the warnings of an impending oil crisis and not responding sooner, we also managed to fund the rebuilding of the Russian military to the point where they have once again rattled their swords and ventured forth as the imperialists they have always been at heart.

Thankfully, the transformation is finally upon us. The signs of this change in attitude are becoming more commonplace and highlight that the world’s transition to alternative energy  has shifted from being an unwelcomed “have to” to a genuine “want to” and a “must”.

The evidence is everywhere. American industry has historically dragged its feet in implementing mandated changes that are not supported by a bottom line payoff.  In previous years, the EPA has had to drag corporations screaming and kicking into environmental compliance. By contrast, not only are corporations implementing alternative energy solutions toward powering their facilities through their own initiative, utilities throughout America have tossed aside their governmentally mandated timetables for alternative energy conversion and implemented accelerated programs which will bring them into compliance with new standards well in advance of the deadlines.

Pacific Gas & Electric Company, (NYSE: PCN) is a company that has come under criticism as recently as 2007 for only producing 12% of its electricity from renewable sources.  This is despite producing 24% of its power from nuclear plants and another 20% from hydroelectric generation.  California has placed a mandate on electric utilities that they have contracts in place to derive 20% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2010. As recently as the first of the year, opinion was still split whether the company could meet these most challenging goals.

But times have changed. PG&E became more determined than ever to not only meet but to surpass the mandate.  Their outreach program combined with the alternative energies’ renewed efforts to bring their technologies forward has had a significant impact on PG&E’s progress.

Last week  PG&E announced that it had contracted with OptiSolar and SunPower Corporation (Nasdaq: SWPR) to buy a total of 800MW of power from huge solar facilities slated to begin delivering power in 2010 and at full power by 2012.  This announcement brings the total renewable electricity PG&E has contracted to receive to 3600MW.  This brings their total commitment to renewable resources to 24% of their projected energy sales. Rather than falling short as predicted, PG&E has already met their mandated requirements more than a year ahead of schedule.

I spoke with Jennifer Zerwer environmental news representative for PG&E.  She told me that PG&E has been very aggressive in searching out renewable resources and it was this commitment to renewable energies coupled with significant advances in the various technologies that have allowed them to ink this many deals this quickly.

There is, however, one outstanding caveat which could upend this entire process.  That would be Congress’ failure to renew the incentive tax credits for renewable energy. In PGE’s recent press release announcing the solar deal that caught the attention of the nation by virtue of its size relative to all previous developments, the most important sentence in the entire agreement was “Both projects are contingent upon the extension of the federal investment tax credit for renewable energy and processes to expedite transmission needs.”

America needs to be off the oil nipple and the American public wants to buy petro-free cars and trucks.  At the same time, its evident that America’s utilities want to buy renewable energy.  Still, as rapidly as these technologies are developing, many emerging companies could be irreparably damaged if Congress doesn’t renew the investment tax credits which help fuel development and will allow these technologies to gain economic parity in time to save our country.

Deliveries are expected to begin in October 2008. The ethanol is being sourced from Petrozilian Energia SA (PES) from Brazil.

Over the last several quarters the company completed several similar ethanol sale transactions with European based buyers. However, this new transaction with JHTG is a direct result of our increased exposure from the Company’s market awareness program in the Asian Pacific Rim. The Company expects this to be the first of many purchases to come from that region. To read the entire story, click here:

CYCLONE POWER TECHNOLOGIES – Hosts Congressman to View Engine

Cyclone Power Technologies (Other OTC:CYPW) is trading up 3.45% following the Company’s August 21, 2008 announcement that it had hosted Rep. Ron Klein (D-FL) Friday in a meeting requested by the Congressman to view the Cyclone Engine and discuss ways to support the company’s award-winning technology on Capitol Hill.

This visit to Cyclone’s research facility represented the second meeting between Rep. Klein and the Cyclone team. The first occurred at the Congressman’s recent press conference to announce his five-point plan to reduce gas prices and help achieve American energy independence. Among the solutions Rep. Klein presented in July to “break our addition to oil” included greater investments in cutting edge technology, such as the multi-fuel capable Cyclone Engine.

The Cyclone Engine is a highly advanced steam engine, capable of running efficiently on virtually any fuel source. Over the last year the company has successfully run the environmentally-friendly Cyclone Engine on dozens of bio-fuels and synthetic gas alternatives, including fuels derived from algae and other inexpensive, renewable sources that do not eat into the world’s food supply. Also, whereas diesel engines can only use 5% alternative fuels without voiding warranty and possibly damaging the engine (according to a 2008 EPA report), the Cyclone Engine can run 100% bio-fuel, even at less refined and less expensive stages of production.

Klein presented in July to “break our addition to oil” included greater investments in cutting edge technology, such as the multi-fuel capable Cyclone Engine.

The Cyclone Engine is a highly advanced steam engine, capable of running efficiently on virtually any fuel source. Over the last year the company has successfully run the environmentally-friendly Cyclone Engine on dozens of bio-fuels and synthetic gas alternatives, including fuels derived from algae and other inexpensive, renewable sources that do not eat into the world’s food supply. Also, whereas diesel engines can only use 5% alternative fuels without voiding warranty and possibly damaging the engine (according to a 2008 EPA report), the Cyclone Engine can run 100% bio-fuel, even at less refined and less expensive stages of production.

Alternative Energy Stocks Close Up Slightly as Dow Lingers to the Upside

August 18, 2008
By

Solar energy stocks claimed the spotlight today as alternative energy stocks closed to the upside as the Dow kept in the green but just barely closing up .38% at 11,659.90.  Hopes of increasing consumer confidence were spurred by lower futures prices and oil continuing its decline toward the $100 mark. Oil fell sharply today into the mid $111′s before crawling back up to $113.70, making for yet another down day. Make sure you read our blog titled Georgian Conflict Highlights the Urgency for American Oil Independence where we take an in depth look at how this conflict demonstrates how our attitude toward oil independence has contributed to global insecurities.

Canadian Solar (Nasdaq: CSIQ) gapped up at the open with the rest of the solar sector but couldn’t hold the gain and saw its stock decline throughout the rest of the trading session and closed down 1.53% to $28.26 reiterating the fickle nature of investors in emerging growth industries.  Unable to keep pace with sector leaders in advancing their guidance, CSIQ has fallen out of comparable favor as it meets but does not exceed market expectations.

VIASPACE INC. – Releases New Vehicle Battery Pack for Sale

VIASPACE Inc. (OTCBB: VSPC) is trading down 2.78% following the Company’s August 18, 2008 announcement that the “company that transforms proven space and defense technologies from NASA and the Department of Defense into hardware and software solutions’,” Light Electric Vehicle (LEV) battery pack is now available for sale. The first battery pack has been delivered for evaluation to an electric bike (eBike) manufacturer. The pack is based on special cells produced by VIASPACE partner, Yoku of Hong Kong. Until now, most eBike batteries have been made from lead-acid cells similar to those used to start automobiles. Lead acid cells are heavy, bulky, and need to be replaced often.

The VIASPACE Lithium Polymer batteries are four times lighter, and nearly three times smaller than lead-acid batteries, and they also demonstrate much greater life. This weight and space savings is critical to eBike handling and style, providing users with a powerful boost while keeping the eBike light, good looking, and easy to handle. A single small battery pack yields a 40 mile range, and a pack the size of the current lead acid battery will yield over 100 miles. The eBike can be simply recharged by plugging in to a standard electrical plug.  To read the entire story, click here:
