The Great “Green” Migration: Meet the New Unstoppable Energy Trend

by | published July 14th, 2018

The global rise of renewable energy is hard to miss.

Road trips offer views of land dotted with rows upon rows of wind turbines…

A walk through the neighborhood provides sights of rooftop solar panels…

New stories about powering up through the sun and wind constantly pop up on a daily basis.

A century ago, no one would ever have imagined this could be possible.

We are living in the future.

Especially considering how widespread the reliance on renewable resources is becoming.

In the U.S. alone, investment in the renewable energy industry exceeded $40 billion in 2017, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. This amount is growing in 2018, and could head into the $1 trillion range by 2030.

A recent bill signed in California – the fifth biggest economy in the world – mandates rooftop solar panels on all homes built past 2020.

In keeping with the U.S. trend of utilizing renewable energy, California is leading the nation in solar employment, with 86,414 employees in the sector. Beyond that, since 2010, solar in California has met half of the state’s total energy demand.

And other U.S. states are following suit.

I discussed earlier this week about a solar rebate program being rolled out in North and South Carolina, in which residents are being paid for installing solar panels on their homes, reducing electricity bills, and ultimately saving residents thousands.

But that’s just the beginning.

An initiative in Arizona signed by thousands of state citizens will require 50% of power generation to come from renewable sources by 2030.

This mandate expands the previously existing requirement of 15% renewable energy generation by 2025. The Grand Canyon State is clearly enthusiastic about clean energy – not terribly surprising, considering it has the best solar resources in the country.

Becoming 50% reliant on renewable energy by 2030 will be a laughably easy goal to meet for this desert state. Better yet, it’s backed by California billionaire, Tom Steyer.

We can see even more progress in renewables if we cross a few oceans.

Over in India, investments in renewable energy are growing even faster than China, the current global leader in clean energy.

In the last couple years, India has been eying the top position in clean energy, and is looking to have at least 175,000 megawatts (MW) of installed renewable capacity by 2022.

They’ve been making huge strides to accomplish that goal, with $7.4 billion invested in the industry in the first half of 2018. In fact, last year, India added more power-generation capacity from renewable sources than conventional ones.

More proof of the renewable trend comes from Germany. The country’s solar plants and wind farms are producing more electricity than coal – 118 billion kilowatt-hours through June 2018.

But they’re not done yet.

The German government has appointed a 28-person commission to phase out 50% of the country’s coal plants by 2030. This is a lofty goal, but we know the Germans are nothing if not determined and efficient.

The ultimate plan? Double the usage of renewable energies by 2030 and bring it up to 65% of their total energy portfolio.

Now, I could write volumes about all the new renewable initiatives happening around the world. The list is nearly endless, and it is one of the most encouraging phenomena I’ve encountered in my decades of work in the energy world.

But established countries are far from the only places where solar energy could be utilized.

No, there are acres of unused land that are ripe with potential.

I’m talking places like Death Valley in California, the Great Victoria Desert in Australia, or the Gobi Desert in northern China.

These barren wastelands may look just that, barren.

Lifeless.

But they’re about to become much, much more than that.

There are companies itching to take advantage of these vast swaths of land.

The race is on.

But there’s one company whose technology could position them as the frontrunner in this industry.

This company may be nearly miniscule now – it has a market cap of a mere $544 million – but the revenue growth for it as it goes deeper into the desert is nearly off the charts.

We’re talking an 80,000% potential revenue growth – and that could be just the start.

Even just a small investment could make investors a fortune.

And you could be one of them.

Anyone hitting the ground running is likely to see a huge growth in their initial investment. And this is an opportunity that doesn’t come around every day.

If you’d like a shot at being one of the hundreds of newly-minted millionaires from this chance, just click here to learn all about it.

Sincerely,


Kent
