Renewable Energy

Come join us at the front of the transition to a clean and sustainable world!

Many people have become concerned about the future of oil, coal and natural gas. These non renewable energy sources will not be available forever and alternative sources of renewable energy will be necessary in the future. One can take part in the world’s energy transformation by investing in renewable energy sources including: wind, geothermal energy, biomass, biogas, fuel cells, hydel and solar energy. Investment in renewable energy sources today may bring big profits tomorrow.

Over the last several decades, the Western world has made reducing greenhouse gas emissions one of its top priorities.

Europe leads the world in renewable energy efforts. And it wants to keep that distinction, as evidenced by recent pledges to:

1. Slash greenhouse gas emissions by 20% compared to 1990 levels – by 2020.

2. Rely on renewable energy for 20% of their energy needs – by 2020

When they made those extremely optimistic goals, they did have a few other things on their mind other than saving the planet. Understandably, they want to pull away from their dependence on Russian natural gas supplies and oil supplies from Middle East. To meet those goals, European utility companies have to invest about €1 trillion ($1.4 trillion).

Considering Germany for example who are also World’s leader when it comes to renewable.

This is reflected in Germany’s current market volume, groundbreaking policies and industrial strength in the renewables sector.

The German government has ambitious goals: it hopes to cut 270 million metric tons of CO2 emissions by 2020 and foster the consumption of energy produced from renewable energy sources. Government’s goal is to cover over 35% of the country’s electricity demand by these resources by 2020. Having a look at the German renewable industry

  • It is no 1 in terms of Phato Voltaic market volume – 42% of globally installed capacity
  • Europe’s market leader in wind energy – 16% of globally installed capacity
  • 10.1% of the total energy consumption and 16.4% of the electric power consumption is covered by renewable energy
  • 244 TWh of total energy were generated by renewable energy sources
  • 37.5 billion Euro revenues, and over 20 billion Euro in domestic investments
  • 537 patents in the field of renewable energies were registered by the German industry

Renewable energy sources proved themselves to be a stable factor in Germany even during the economic crisis in 2009: the renewable industry was able to continue its substantial growth. Germany has a bright future in the renewables sector and are determined to be the #1 country for renewables in the world by 2020, when predictions put domestic investments at EUR 235 billion and exports at over EUR 80 billion.

The current focus of R&D investments is on areas like biogas in fuel cells, PV thin-film technology, offshore multi-megawatt installations, and solar process heat.

Investors have short, medium and long-term investment possibilities open to them here in this booming sector. Germany offers numerous incentives for all investors.

There is a large selection of programs designed to support a wide variety of business activities at different stages of the investment process available.

Some recent examples of significant investments in Renewable sector are given below.

  • Reliance Power and Reliance Natural Resources merger: This deal was valued at US $11 billion and turned out to be one of the biggest deals of the year. It eased out the path for Reliance power to get natural gas for its power projects.
  • Suzlon Energy Acquires stakes in RE power Systems: Suzlon Energy, the world’s fifth-largest wind turbine maker, today said it has completed the acquisition of Portugal-based Martifer Group’s stake in its German subsidiary, REpower Systems. The company has made the final payment of US$87.6 million to Martifer for its 24 per cent stake. Suzlon now owns 90.72 per cent of REpower.
