Top Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Call it global warming. Call it climate change. Maybe it’s a nuance, or maybe your political stance determines how you feel about this debate. 24/7 Wall St. has tracked investment in clean energy and renewable energy for years.

It turns out that 2016 broke the growth cycle for investing in clean energy — and then some.

With a new Trump administration about to take office, it looks like there is a night and day views on climate change versus the Obama administration. That makes this report something which likely cannot be ignored. After all, it was only known for less than two months that Hillary Clinton’s clean energy trends would not continue what was seen under the Obama administration. Still, it’s a big world and many other nations outside of the United States have a serious role in clean energy.

The news at the start of 2017 is showing a stark difference for 2016. Bloomberg New Energy Finance now shows that the total dollars of new investments into clean energy fell a whopping 18% down to $287.5 billion in 2016. While the prior year was a record of $348.5 billion, what stands out here now is that the 2016 figure is also represented as being 9% lower than the $315 billion invested into clean energy in 2014.

Top Oil Stocks To Watch Right Now

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and HSBC Holdings Plc are advising Abu Dhabi’s government-owned oil company on the possible sale of a stake in its $20 billion refining unit, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. is reviewing offers from potential partners who could buy as much as 40 percent of its refining business, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. A 40 percent stake could be valued at $8 billion.

An Adnoc media official declined to comment on the sale but said the company had received significant interest in its effort to attract partners across its businesses. Goldman Sachs and HSBC declined to comment.
