Energy Trends Point to Unique Opportunities for Investors
OAKLAND, Calif. Jan. 9, 2002-- The hydrogen infrastructure, carbon nanotubes, and the "Energy Web" are three of the leading clean-technology opportunities for investors, according to a new report.
"Clean-Energy Markets: Five Trends to Watch in 2002," a free report from Clean Edge, Inc. (www.cleanedge.com) -- a leading market research and consulting firm focused on clean-technology -- describes a variety of issues that have aligned to offer unique opportunities in the clean-energy sector. They include security issues, energy uncertainty, the need for power reliability, technological advances, environmental issues, the rise of the developing world, and investment commitments by government, corporations, and venture capitalists. The report reveals five trends to watch in the near- to mid-term:
- The Energy Web: the emerging marriage of the energy, telecom, and software sectors that is creating a whole new breed of "smart" appliances, buildings, and vehicles
- The Hydrogen Infrastructure: the assemblage of products, services, and systems that will enable the manufacture, storage, and transportation of hydrogen for use in stationary and portable fuel cells
- Bringing Solar to Scale: the mass commercialization and build-up of large-scale solar-cell manufacturing that will result in significant economies of scale
- The Microtization of Fuel Cells: the application of micro fuel cells for use in a wide range of portable electronic devices including cell phones, personal digital assistants, and laptop computers
- Carbon Nanotubes: tiny fabricated tube-shaped molecules that are optimal for hydrogen storage -- and are getting close to commercial viability.
