Although fossil fuels still constitute the most lucrative energy segment for investors, renewable energy is becoming an increasingly important sector as companies start listening to warnings about our climate’s future.
The European Union is aiming for 15% of its energy to be renewably sourced by 2020, representing an exciting opportunity for investors. Indeed, making a move early could be very wise as the use of crude oil and gas becomes less sustainable.
An array of different nations across the globe are gearing up to invest in renewables, most notably the United States, China, and members of the European Union.
In terms of investment options, mini-bonds and issue bonds are worth looking into, as well as debentures, which fund individual projects.
