Clean Energy ETF
Extracting energy from sun and wind is not a play-thing from the alternative community anymore. A clean energy ETF for sure has a vibrant future ahead. Governments are stepping up environmental regulations in order to make this world cleaner.
The use of oil, gas and coal will decline as these are not inexhaustible sources. But it will not be for tomorrow. 40 years ago they told me at school that oil would be run out in 25 years. Today there seems to be more oil around than ever before.
So this clean energy ETF will not profit from the depletion of natural sources. You may expect more from environmental regulations and the will of the consumer. Solar and wind energy also has the potential to be a very local source of energy.
Large investments in infrastructures and high voltage towers are not necessary. So in upcoming countries one does not have to invest that largely anymore to supply local people with energy.
