In his new book Power Plug-In: Global Investments for Our Energy Future, investment strategist, and author, Gordon Ettie offers a compelling and controversial set of solutions for energy investors which revolve around the key theme developed after more than two years of research and analysis that the future success of both short and long term energy investment must be global.
“Because the energy problem and its ultimate solution is a global one, any investment should be in an equity that is global, and should follow these three key investment guidelines,” says Ettie who goes on to offer these three tips for finding the best global energy investments.
1. Investment should be carefully distributed among companies that have a global presence.
2. Investments should be made in countries focused on positive energy research and development
3. Investments should consider the type of energy used in a given country and the balance between the imports and exports of energy.
“Another consideration is when we buy product from other countries that use energy are we just exporting our pollution? Countries want to grow their national economy and this could be at the risk of destroying their environment and maybe the world's environment. Even though a particular country is making great efforts in keeping their environment as clean as possible, if that effort results in their harming their own economy or in polluting other areas of the world, clearly an investment in this country would not be attractive,” says Ettie.
Ettie, author of the new book Power Plug-In: Global Investments for Our Energy Future offers a detailed analysis of national and global energy sources from coal to wind and everything in between and then offers corresponding investment opportunities in each energy category. Ettie provides a snapshot synopsis of the many energy sources outlined throughout the book and then goes deeper into the global investment potential of each one. The result? Your own GPS system guiding you through the maze of investment opportunities and pitfalls to the safety of a solid, well conceived energy portfolio.
Ettie is not only familiar with the whole topic of energy; he’s devoted his lifelong career to it, making a lot of successful investments for himself and others. His position on the boards of prestigious companies advising on critical decisions in the highly technical and competitive world of energy and, if that isn’t enough, he has been an advisor to entrepreneurs and start-ups all looking for a share of the growing energy market.
“Power Plug-In is a useful view of the dynamic energy landscape,” agrees Scott I. Oakford, Managing Partner, Hamilton Robinson Capital Partners. He goes on to say, “The author, as an engineer, CEO and investor examines each energy source—its origin, history, contribution to standards of living, cost, and effects it has had on economics, technological development, and growth and offers solid guidance for anyone looking to participate in this exciting area.”
Power Plug-In offers compelling global solutions for both the individual, organizational and government energy investor by taking a broad look at all energy sources in the production of electricity and fuel for transportation and then providing a strategic plan for the best use of both research and financial resources for the future.
“My goal is to use revenues from this book and attract funding which will be tax deductible to support an energy scholarship program,” explains Ettie whose non-profit organization Energy Scienomic is the publisher.
