Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2009
Never before in history has green energy been poised for such expansion. Population growth (especially among middle-class consumers in Asia), global climate change, unusually unstable oil prices, and international tensions, are all conspiring to increase our world's demand for clean and renewable energy.
Simultaneously, researchers, scientists, manufacturers, inventors, business owners, entrepreneurs, journalists and consumers alike, are confronting the excitement and challenges wrought by the collision of opportunities, technology and business. With new developments occurring on a regular basis, and ongoing disinformation propagated by vested interests, it's no wonder why so many are attempting to discern an answer to the question "What are the facts about clean energy technologies?"
Craig Shields, Renewable Energy Business Analyst, says, "Although it's a bit of a cliché, change does bring opportunity." Mr. Shields is the founder and CEO of 2GreenEnergy, which features a newly launched and rapidly expanding website designed to be a nexus for renewable energy investing (http://2GreenEnergy.com). Mr. Shields leverages his business experience and renewable energy contacts to sort out what's real and what's not - from a business perspective - within the clean energy industry.
As part of the website launch, Mr. Shields has just released the first of a three-part series of downloadable reports on the current state of the renewable energy industry, titled: "THE THREE BRASS TACKS OF RENEWABLE ENERGY: DRIVING PROFITS NOW."
States Mr. Shields, "I call these the 'Three Brass Tacks' because these are my complete, unvarnished, and uncompromised assessment as to where this industry is actually going."
Mr. Shields is providing this series of reports for no cost, available at the following link: http://2GreenEnergy.com/Three-Brass-Tacks
Additionally, Mr. Shields offers a 94-second video introduction to the first report on the same link.
The first report (Part One) of the "Three Brass Tacks of Renewable Energy: Driving Profits Now," is centered on "Start-up Electric Vehicle Businesses as Legitimate Investment Opportunities," which includes the following points:
- Understanding the EV Adoption Curve: What needs to happen to unleash market demand? What does MIT's Sloan School of Economics think?
- Who, exactly, is building a reasonably priced electric vehicle? Analyzing the Catch-22 for the battery and auto industries - Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan and Renault - cutting the Gordian Knot.
- What this means from the standpoint of the investor - identifying niche markets.
- How investors can understand the weaknesses of present-day electric vehicles and make bets in places where those weaknesses are mitigated.
The first report is available immediately. The 2nd and 3rd reports will be emailed within two weeks.
Mr. Shields derives much of his clean energy acumen through diligent interviews of industry professionals, on all sides of the renewable energy spectrum. Many of his interviews and insights are routinely reported and updated at http://2GreenEnergy.com/Blog
Furthermore, he possesses a real world appreciation for what it takes to bring technology ideas to market, by way of his previous consulting firm, which had over 100 employees, and, for 25+ years, helped drive the expansion of many of the Fortune 500: IBM, FedEx, HP, 3M, Porsche, Mitsubishi, Philips, Pioneer, Sony, and dozens of others.
Be sure to download PART ONE of the THREE BRASS TACKS OF RENEWABLE ENERGY: DRIVING PROFITS NOW, while the series is available for free, and look for parts two and three (also for no cost), in the coming two weeks. http://2GreenEnergy.com/Three-Brass-Tacks
