  • Vestas Shows Solid Earnings Expansion in 2009 [View article]
    Carl, I was trying to take a neutral stance on the stock, reporting the facts only. I'm not sure how you can say I'm upbeat on Vestas - they're not looking forward to a great year. The analysts I work with have a "hold" rating on the stock.

  • Canada's Top 10 Cleantech Firms [View article]
    Although Corporate Knights gets more attention than our annual SB20: The World's Top Sustainable Stocks, they seem to include most of the cleantech stocks in Canada without much evaluation. WaterFurnace and Westport are on our 2009 SB20 because they do represent outstanding opportunities, and we've covered 5N, Carmanah and other Canadian stocks in our Progressive Investor newsletter. Pure Technologies (PUR.V) is another strong stock that trades in Canada. progressiveinvestor.com

  • Green Stocks for 2009 [View article]
    Thank you all for your positive comments on this article. In response to Advill, who says the picks are old news, that's the point. This is the time to focus on leaders, not risky new companies. Sure, I couldn've listed many other companies like Google that are involved in Smart Grid, for example. This article points to the main pure plays in the field and isn't meant to list every possible company. GE is an important player, but look at how it's stock has performed compared to Vestas, and GE is involved in so many businesses it's stock price doesn't move based on its clean energy positions.

  • 2009: Boom or Bust for Clean Energy? [View article]
    To respond to User 224899: Solar and wind technologies have been growing in the range of 40% a year for about 5 years now. The cleantech sector as a whole is one of the top sectors for venture capital investment across the world, so clearly many people find this field ripe for investment.

    When President Carter created incentives for the field, solar took off. When Reagan came into office, he immediately removed the solar panels from the White House as well as any beneficial policies for clean energy, that's why the tide turned against cleantech.

    There is no going back now. The jury is out on climate change. The wind industry is mature enough to stand on its own, and prices for solar are dropping rapidly thanks to just a few years of positive support.

  • How Does the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act Impact Cleantech? [View article]
    There are many problems with nuclear and turning coal into liquids. Every major cleantech NGO has come out against both technologies, including the venerable Amory Lovins at Rocky Mountain Institute.

    Here's an article I wrote on the problems of nuclear:
    www.sustainablebusines...

    Clean energy technologies like energy efficient products, super-efficient buildings and wind and solar power can deliver environmental results and meet more of our energy needs much sooner than building new nuclear power plants, and create more jobs at a lower cost to taxpayers-without the collateral environmental and security risks.
