GreenerMoney.com

A lot of people have been coming to this blog looking for a site called “Greener Money” that supposedly offers free green financial advice. I don’t know where it is, but here is a series of articles about how to invest in Green Energy for beginners.

I’ve closed the comments on this post because people were writing to ask me for a free book. I don’t know where to get this free book, I just write a magazine column called Greener Money, and that is drawing search engine hits.

Investing in Biomass

I’ve recently said that the best way to invest in both Advanced Biofuels and Cellulosic Ethanol, and Biochar (aka terra preta) is to invest in Biomass. Here is one way to go about it: buying Forestry ETFs or Stocks.

The Algonquin Power Income Fund

I recommended the Algonquin Power Income Fund as a renewable energy income investment back in January, and as part of my ten clean energy picks for 2009.

Since then, both the stock and the ten picks have been doing well in comparison to the market, but Algonquin has entered into a couple deals, while I look into in a recent update on the Algonquin Power Income Fund.

Hedging

Since I’ve recently been bearish on the market, but don’t want to wait on the sidelines, and expect that many of my readers feel the same way, I just published two articles on hedging strategies.

  • A hedging how-to, with five ways to hedge, and a simple method to fine-tune your strategy
  • How I’ve recently adjusted my hedging strategy to accomodate the insights of Taleb’s The Black Swan.</li>

    Market Predictions

    Predicting market moves is notoriouslly difficult, but I’m feeling pretty good about my recent efforts.
    On October 11, 2008, I stoped being a permabear and said, “the market as a whole now seems to me to be fairly valued.” The S&P 500 closed the previous Friday just below 900; today it closed at 919.32. In the fear that abounded last October, it was a hard call to be even that bullish, bit it seems to have worked out.

    On June 2, I said we were near a market peak/ The S&P 500 closed that day at 944.74, and is currently down 3% almost a month later, having only bearly exceeded that number by a fraction of a percent.

    Since I’m currently short-term bearish, I’ve started a series of articles not to by now, but to buy when a market decline puts them back on sale. Here are may clean enrgy shopping list articles so far:

  • Transmission stocks
  • Energy Efficiency Stocks
  • Clean Transport Stocks
  • Why market timing makes sense
  • Two Landfill Gas and Three Geothermal Stocks
  • Five Solar Stocks
  • Comments off

    Solar Stocks

    In May, I went to Solar 2009.

    One panel I attended led to a series of articles on Solar stocks:

  • The outlook for solar stocks
  • Why First Solar (FSLR) is a risky bet.
  • Why Solar Millenium may have what it takes.
  • I also particpated, with presentations on the best incentives for solar investments, and with an analysis of large scale electricity storage, as well as alternative renewable electricity integration strategies.

    Charles also attended, and took a look at the implications of the removal of the $2000 cap on the residential Investment Tax Credit.
