If you are looking for ways to put a little green in your wallet by putting some green investments in your portfolio, you might be surprised at the wide range of available offerings

 

Green Power Investments 

Green energy is a hot topic in a world concerned about climate change. Power generation that doesn’t rely on the burning of fossil fuels to generate electricity for our homes or industries is creating a growing number of investment opportunities. Solar Energy is among the top sources of renewable energy, The Green Crowd are proven experts in this fields.

Water Stocks 

One of the most important natural resources we have is water. There is considerable fear the world will run out of fresh water due to climate change.

The European Environment Agency notes that some 20 European countries depend on other countries for more than 10% of their water resources. Five (the Netherlands, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, and Luxembourg) rely on rivers that flow in from other countries to provide more than 75% of their water.2 In the United States, cities from Los Angeles to Miami are concerned about water scarcity as climate change takes a toll on water resources.

Water has also been the go-to resource for renewable energy for centuries. The ancient Greeks ran grain mills on waterpower. Today, projects such as China’s massive Three Gorges Dam can supply electricity to between 70 million and 80 million households. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), hydropower is the most cost-efficient means of generating electricity.

Wind Power 

Wind is one of the fastest-growing sources of renewable energy, having increased 75-fold over the past two decades China leads the world with 217 gigawatts of installed capacity in 2018, followed by the U.S. with 96 gigawatts and Germany with 59 gigawatts. Wind power will continue to have a strong focus in Ireland and the UK in 2021.

Solar Energy  

Energy from the sun powers homes, buildings and a variety of other items from lights to radios. If you think the sun is just starting to rise in this industry, focus your attention on companies that make solar panels, which will benefit as homeowners and businesses increasingly adopt solar power.

Of course, there’s more to solar than panels. From components to installation, a wide variety of businesses present investment opportunities, including the EIIS Private Placing with Green Crowd IE which offers qualified investors up to 40% Tax Relief. Contact us directly for more information.

Pollution Controls 

The reduction is the key term here. From reducing greenhouse gas emissions on industrial power plants to minimizing the emissions that come out of the tailpipe of your car, the pollution control industry is on the rise. This is the industry that responds every time legislation mandates an improvement in the amount of some harmful chemical that can be released into the environment. We continue to watch this space for potential investment opportunities in 2021.

Green Transportation 

When it comes to transportation, Tesla the first name on many people’s lists. While an attention-grabbing leader and exciting technology have kept this company in the news, it’s not the only game in town.

On a smaller scale, researchers are working with fuel-cell technology to develop an alternative method of powering automobiles. If this technology works, there are millions of carsand millions of consumerswaiting for it. Since Covid-19 Logistics is at an all-time boom coping with unprecedented movement of goods across nations, from alternative sources of transportation to warehousing, 2021 will have a keen eye on Greener Transportation and fuel alternatives associated.

Waste Reduction 

Recycling has become a standard practice. Most people are aware that paper, metal and glass can be reprocessed and reused, but items that cannot be recycled easily continues to grow. Waste oil, vegetable oil, batteries, cell phones, computers and even car parts can have a second life. Recycling these items involves a business enterprise humming along in the background.

 

Organics 

Organic farms stay away from the use of pesticides, engaging in sustainable farming practices and sell products that are often healthier to eat than the stuff composed of three-syllable words that you can’t pronounce, and a shelf-life measured in decades. They also engage in animal management practices that avoid the use of hormones and antibiotics, keeping those chemicals out of the food chain and out of the ground and water surrounding the farms. We will be looking to work with organic investments throughout 2021.
