Shark Tank's Kevin O'Leary on why he's not investing in energy
Kevin O'Leary from the U.S. reality TV show Shark Tank has a brash style which has been part of his success as a businessman and investor. CCTV America reporter Patrice Howard spoke to O’Leary about how investors can find opportunities in today’s market. O'Leary is a self made multi-millionaire with an estimated net worth of 400 million dollars. Like the entrepreneurs that appear on Shark Tank, O 'Leary started with a big vision, but small funds. He launched an educational software company from his basement which he eventually sold to toy giant Mattel for 3.7 billion dollars. It was one of the largest deals ever in the consumer software industry. O'Leary has since founded his own mutual funds company and has invested in dozens of ventures.

Can Investing In Solar Beat The Stock Market?? Results Will Surprise You! FarmCraft101 solar pt4
Did I waste my money? I invested in a 9200W grid-tie solar system, professionally installed by a solar company. This was a turn key installation, I didn't do any of the work, so it wasn't exactly cheap. After the tax credit, it cost me $17,022. My solar video series: Part 1: https://youtu.be/m5wv4HcRNKw Part 2: https://youtu.be/gPycyuVJ_Cg Part 3: https://youtu.be/F1q5uIzjj_M Part 4: https://youtu.be/gAswWVETWKo A note on tax credits. A tax credit is a reduction in the amount of taxes that you owe. They are used by the government to incentivize certain activities, but there is no money passing from the government to the receiver of the tax credit. If you don't pay enough in taxes to at least equal the amount of the credit, then you don't get the credit! Said another way, in order to receive a tax credit, you first have to pay that much in taxes. I paid far more in taxes than I received from this tax credit, which came to about $7000. How does my solar investment compare to investing in the stock market? Watch the video. The results will surprise you.

BYD looks healthier. The technology is close to being profitable. This will not only boost the industry but also renewables. Knowing what is going on is key to profitable investing. At the current moment solar is doing really good with the latest positive news being the state of California making it mandatory to install solar roofs on now houses by 2020. However, solar and wind energy, the drivers of renewable energy are both very volatile and not producing most of the energy when it is needed. You never know whether it will be windy and solar energy is mostly produced during midday while the highest consumption is in the evening. This leads us to the key component for renewables which is energy storage. Battery costs have been constantly declining over the past years and are becoming more and more attractive for investors and renewable project. News from Electrek shows that Audi promises batteries at a cost as low as $114 per kWh which would really be a game changer for electrical vehicles and energy storage. The lower costs might increase demand for storage as it becomes profitable. The issue with renewable energy One issue with renewable energy is that you can’t store it which means that you might even have to sell it at a negative price. The problem with the abundance of renewable energy in peak production times can only be solved with storage which would give a boost both to the battery and solar industry. So, the demand is here, the technology is approaching profitability or will soon reach such a target and the question remains how to invest? How to invest in the trend? There are three main trends to follow: utilities, commercial buildings, and homeowners. The steps to take for investing are the following: Look at the metal used in the batteries (lithium, cobalt, nickel etc.) Look at the metal used in creating the infrastructure (copper) Look at what produces the energy (wind turbines and solar panels) Look at the producers of all the other components Look at the return on investment (the most notorious might not be the best) Look at the political support and interest rates

Renewable Energy Attracts Investment and Funding in 3Q - The Minute
The dollars are continuing to flow into the renewable energy sector, in investments of all types and in government funding. Financial activity in renewables is strong and trending upward, despite questions of uncertain subsidies and rapidly changing costs. In the third quarter of this year, total corporate funding in the wind energy industry totaled $2.4 billion, according to consulting firm Mercom Capital Group. That funding includes venture capital, public market financing, and debt financing. In a VC deal, Goldman Sachs Group invested $140 million in ReNew Power Ventures. Large-scale project funding added up to $3 billion. Two M and A transactions were completed, for $81 million, and project acquisitions totaled $5.3 billion. And there were two IPOs in the third quarter, for $111 million. The list of the many companies, funds, and countries involved was equally impressive. Deals were done by, among others, the Asia Development Bank, Polish Energy Partners, the Chinese private-equity fund CEE Equity Partners, and the Greece-based ELTECH ANEMOS. Countries involved included the U.K., Norway, Denmark, Germany, Ghana, and Poland. On the home front, and in the solar power field, the U.S. Department of Energy is investing $53 million in 40 research and development projects to lower the cost of solar energy. The driver here is to support several areas of technology development to bring innovative ideas to market more quickly. It looks like investors are placing big bets on renewable energy as a boom industry that promises equally big payoffs. I’m John Howell for 3BL Media. © 2014 | 3BL Media | All Rights Reserved

Creating energy that's good for people, and good for the planet. -- Earn up to 5% interest on your investment -- Put solar panels on more schools and organisations across Oxfordshire -- 100% of our surpluses support further local action on climate change The days of fossil fuels are numbered. The shift to renewable energy generation is gaining pace and gives us the opportunity to reshape the way we manage our energy. With the support of our members and partners, the Low Carbon Hub has already built renewable energy projects for schools and businesses across Oxfordshire. They are producing electricity that is not just cleaner and greener, but cheaper too. Host organisations save money on their bills, 100% of the surpluses generated are re-invested in local carbon-cutting initiatives, lowering carbon emissions further, and our investor members receive a decent return for their financial support. There’s so much more to do – and the opportunity is huge – but we need more investment to make it happen. We are launching the Community Energy Fund to raise new equity to grow our portfolio of community energy projects and put more power in the hands of local people.

Is Solar Power Worth It? - Newsy
Transcript: Here's a question: Is solar power worth it? That kind of depends on where you live. If you're in an area that gets lots of sun and doesn't have lots of extra fees associated with collecting solar energy, and you're ready to make a long-term commitment to solar — sure! Solar power could be a good way to cut down on utility costs. But if you're really wanting to make the switch, the upfront cost of installing panels and getting your home solar-ready can be expensive. The Solar Power Authority estimates the average cost of a 5kW system ranges from around $25,000-$35,000. And for most people, the payoff period will be at least 10 years and likely closer to 20. So, why does location make such a difference? One: Some places are just sunnier than others — and the more sun, the better. And two: Some states have incentives for solar-paneled homes, while others don't. States like Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii — for example — might not be the best places to invest in solar, despite the sunny weather. In Nevada and Arizona, public utilities have enacted regulations that have driven up the cost for homeowners taking advantage of net-metering, which is when a home sells its excess solar power back to the utility companies. And Hawaii's problem is that solar-paneled homes have sold so much surplus power back to the grid that utilities have become overwhelmed. On the other hand, if you live in states like California or Rhode Island, solar could be a good investment. Here's Bill Griffin, president and COO of startup Koolbridge Solar Inc.: "The conversation in Rhode Island is a very interesting one because they're using this net-metering concept, but they're guaranteeing price points and paybacks to the end user if they're the ones generating the solar energy." And California has a history of being pretty pro-renewable energy, though even energy-savvy states have run into issues with power grids. "We're using a structure that's already in place. And I think there's also some potential downsides to that, in that that structure — the grid itself — is coming close to 100 years old," Griffin said. Koolbridge Solar is working on a system that helps homes retain 100 percent of the power gathered through panels on the house, which could eventually help homeowners get away from net metering altogether. But until then, it still makes sense to weigh all the variables when it comes to powering your home with solar energy — just in case.

Trump Is Cutting Funding For Renewable Energy And Boosting Money To Fossil Fuels
Donald Trump’s 2019 budget slashes funding for renewable energy projects in the United States while upping federal funding of fossil fuel projects. Not only is this bad for the environment, but it is a disaster waiting to happen for the US economy. While every other country on the planet is moving forward, we’re still stuck in the past, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/trump-gut-funding-climate-science-boost-fossil-fuels-53058002   Ring of Fire needs your help!

LIKE and SHARE this video or leave a comment to help direct attention to the stories that matter. And SUBSCRIBE to stay connected with Ring of Fire's video content! Donald Trump's 2019 budget slashes funding for renewable energy and environmental protection projects in the United States, while upping the amount that we're giving to fossil fuel companies already. Now, bear in mind for a second that the United States government subsidizes the fossil fuel industry to the tune of between four and seven billion dollars every single year. Rather than trying to say, "Okay, we're just not going to give you the subsidies. We're not going to give anybody subsidies," Trump says, "You know what? We're taking subsidies away from renewable energy projects, which is the fastest-growing energy sector in the United States, and we're giving it to the dying fossil fuel industry just so maybe they can eke out another one or two years before they tap out our oil reserves and our coal deposits, and they just have nothing left to go on." Meanwhile, you're going to cripple the renewable energy industry, cost us thousands upon thousands of jobs, and set us back decades with our energy policy here in the United States. At a time when every other industrialized country in the world is trying to make the switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy, we have a president that wants us to continue down the path that has been proven to be wrong. The path that has proven to lead to destruction of our planet, of our health. That's the path that Donald Trump wants to go down. He doesn't want us using things like the sun or the wind for energy. "No, no, no, no, no. You can't have sun. You can't have wind. Those don't cost enough, and so we're going with the fossil fuels. I made all those lofty promises to the coal industry that I was bringing those jobs back, even though I know that's not possible, so I've gotta throw them some crumbs, if you will, to make them think I care about it, so I get those votes again in 2018 in the midterms, and 2020 in the presidential election." It's not going to happen. We have hit a point, as far as the climate is concerned, where we can not afford any more inaction. What's worse now from this administration is that we're not just getting inaction, we're getting negative action. We are going backwards. We have increased fossil fuel production in the United States. Trump's budget wants to increase the funding for fossil fuel exploration and exploitation in the United States while reducing the renewable energy sector that again, fastest growing energy sector in the United States. It was spreading like wildfire, and he's trying to kill it, which will kill American jobs, which will help destroy the economy. That's another talking point here. We're talking about the economic livelihood of the United States. Forget for a second that climate change exists, that fossil fuel burning is helping to exacerbate it. Let's just talk about the economics. When we have an administration that wants to double down on a fuel source that is finite rather than investing in something that comes every single day fresh and clean, we're ruining our chances at a sustainable economic sector. The fossil fuel will run out eventually. Sun, wind? It's not going to die out as long as human beings are alive, and yet Donald Trump wants to continue us down that path, because he's so beholden to the fossil fuel companies, because the Republican Party is so beholden to the fossil fuel companies, that they're willing to destroy the environment, destroy the economy, just to give those guys a few extra bucks every single year.

In this webinar we will explore the barriers to direct investments in renewable energy projects by pension funds and insurance companies. We will also take a deeper dive into our concept for the solution to overcoming these barriers. The Clean Energy Investment Trust (CEIT) mechanism unbundles the traditional financing model to create distinct cashflows that appeal to different investors. The largest of these investments, the CEIT is a bond-like product, which matches the characteristics of contracted renewable energy projects with the needs of pension fund and insurance company investors with predictable long-term liabilities. Surplus and tail-end cashflows also offer opportunities for other investor classes.

GEPF invests to boost job-creation and economic growth
Post about: gEPF invests to boost job-creation and economic growth. The Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF)has announced the allocation of R13-billion for investment in various sectors of the economy, including the tourism sector, in order to boost job-creation and contribute to renewable energy, food security and broad-based black economic empowerment, writes Katie Horne. This forms part of GEPF’s long-term developmental investment strategy whereby 5 per cent (approximately R60-billion) of its total assets is allocated for investment in commercially viable South African-based projects that will have positive, long-term impacts on development, in addition to providing the financial return expected by the Board. John Oliphant, GEPF Principal Officer said the sustainability of the GEPF investment portfolio is intrinsically linked to the growth of the SA economy. With more than R1trillion assets under management, representing a third of the SA GDP, we think it is prudent to invest in projects that contribute to economic growth and job creation. This, we believe, is in the best interest of our investment portfolio in the long term. GEPF is the largest pension fund in Africa with more than 1.2-million members, 360 000 pensioners and more than R1-trillion worth of assets under management. GEPF and PIC have signed private placement memoranda (PPM) that will ensure guided investment processes in the different investment funds. To date commitments to the following three Funds have been approved: Environmental Sustainability Fund -R5-billion; Priority Sectors Investment Fund -R3-billion; and South African Private Equity Fund -R5-billion. The Isibaya division within the PIC will manage the funds. The Environmental Sustainability Fund will invest in energy renewables and efficiency, energy storage, clean energy and recycling projects. The Fund is expected to generate 500MW of new, renewable energy and 300-million litres of biofuel per annum. It is estimated that the Fund will create approximately 3 000 jobs during and after the construction of renewable energy plants and recycling centres. Tourism The Priority Sectors Investment Fund will focus on projects that will have substantial and positive impact on areas such as job creation and food security. These include manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, mining beneficiation and agro-processing. This Fund aims to create more than 3,000 jobs, of which 25 per cent will be in rural areas. The SA Private Equity Fund will concentrate on medium-to-large capital buyouts as well as mergers and acquisitions. The Fund will seek to achieve broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) to levels 1 and 3 over three to eight years measured over the 10-year span of the portfolio. It is expected that commitments will be made to two additional Funds, the Economic Infrastructure and Africa Private Equity during the year. Note: The Isibaya division focuses on economic infrastructure, environmental sustainability projects; social infrastructure; and new enterprise, job creation and BBBEE. Isibaya provides funding to entities and projects that require a minimum of R10-million up to a maximum of R2-billion.

Renewable Energy Parnership in Rural Malawi
Almost 80,000 people in rural Malawi have improved access to electricity and a brighter future thanks to the Malawi Renewable Energy Acceleration Programme (MREAP) which has published its final results today (Thursday 23rd July). Led by the University of Strathclyde, with an investment of £2.3m, MREAP is the single biggest Scottish Government international development programme to date. Malawi is one of the least electrified countries in sub-Saharan Africa, with only nine per cent of Malawi’s population having access to the country’s national grid. In rural areas this falls to less than one per cent. In districts throughout Malawi, MREAP has improved the facilities available in schools, health clinics and households through access to sustainable energy. Scotland’s world-leading expertise in renewable energy was recognised by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in 2012, when he asked the Scottish Government to support his Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which puts energy access at the heart of international development. MREAP funding provided nearly 50 renewable energy installations in communities across Malawi, ranging from efficient cook stoves, solar pumps and solar panels for electricity, through to solar lanterns and biogas digesters. In addition to bringing community owned energy systems to rural Malawi, MREAP has also encouraged new leadership in Malawi through a new two year postgraduate degree in renewable energy, an entrepreneurship fund and a detailed analysis of the potential for large scale wind energy in the country.
