Traditional batteries found in appliances, electronics, and power tools have benefited from advances in technology. Companies are able to make them cheaper, more efficient, and longer lasting. Companies are still trying to improve batteries, only on a much larger scale. Batteries will be the answer to the storage problem that plaques sustainable energy. Solar power, wind, and electrical vehicles are the focus of many energy companies and technical design companies. The first company to develop a battery that can store sustainable energy efficiently and cost-effectively will provide unprecedented high yields for investors. There are several companies, both established ones and startups, that are on the verge of breakthroughs.
Some companies, such as Magnavolt, Aquacell, and NoPoPo are marketing batteries that are activated using fresh or salt water. Lithium-type batteries are being developed by Aquion Energy and 24M. Other companies are attempting to design batteries that can run on dirt. The race is on to develop new technology and convert it into a marketable product. Not all these companies are publicly traded yet, so investors have to watch closely to determine where to put their money. Those not familiar with energy investing, analyzing reports and market trends, or developing their own investing strategies may need some help to take advantage of these current opportunities. Many websites offer advice, tips, and recommendations to investors. It is wise to research several sites and find details regarding credentials of the contributors, the overall success rate of suggestions, and the cost of membership.
Websites will offer free information for general investing, and some offer classes in strategy development and management of investments. That type of information is often common knowledge. Information shared with members or subscribers is the result of expert analysis and years of experience in the energy industry. Exclusive legal information that is provided to members has the potential to create substantial gains. No investments are risk-free, but years of experience is a significant advantage. Companies that are not yet available on the open stock market, for example, can still be closely watched by those in the know. It is also possible to invest early before the company becomes public. The JOBS Act of 2012 allows startup companies to sell shares to up to two-thousand investors without becoming public. Those early investors may just enjoy huge profits.
