    Update For Wind Investors

    Is There an Upside in Wind Energy Stocks? Wind energy can add diversification to a renewable energy portfolio.

    Matt Whitaker, April 15, 2016 (U.S. News & World Report)

    “…The last decade has seen $128 billion in new wind project investment in the U.S., with 20 states last year adding nearly 8,600 megawatts of capacity, a 77 percent increase over 2014, according to the American Wind Energy Association. That represented 41 percent of all new electricity generation capacity to come online during the year, surpassing solar and natural gas…In 2015, wind power made up 4.7 percent of the electricity generated in the nation…[and] is on track to supply 20 percent of the nation's power by 2030…[Worldwide, wind generation capacity is expected] to grow nearly 40 percent from 2016 to 2019….The potential for returns for investors [in wind stocks] depends on what stage of wind development they want exposure to.

    “…[NextEra Energy, Xcel Energy, Exelon, General Electric, Duke Energy] are stable companies heavily involved in the wind sector. PowerShares WilderHill Clean Energy Portfolio and First Trust ISE Global Wind Energy Index Fund combine some of these]…Investing in companies developing new wind projects and technologies means placing a bet on the broad expansion of wind power, giving investors potentially more upside but also more risk…A different option is yieldcos such as Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners, NextEra Energy Partners and TerraForm Power which] buy stable, cash-producing assets, like wind farms, from companies engaging in riskier development work…Global X's YieldCo Index exchange-traded fund…holds all of those stocks, is comprised of companies representing around 40 percent wind generation, with another 40 percent coming from solar and the remainder coming from other renewable sources…” click here for more
