Energy investments experiencing a revolution

Abu Dhabi Renewable EnergyMasdar Capital, the leading clean energy company of Abu Dhabi, has planned to produce energy investments for the project of dealing with the transformation of waste to heat. So far Masdar Capital has been contributing more financial support to the renewable energy sector and fostered their solar and wind energy investments. Masdar Capital will burn  waste to heat a building or treat sewage waste and this new method was commended by investors across the world. This year many investors would like to promote the growth of the renewable energy sector.   Alex O’Cinneide, the financial manager in the energy summit in Abu Dhabi articulated that the investments in the alternative energy generation sector have outmatched the investment opportunities in the core sectors. Masdar Clean Technology Fund, managed by the government recently has closed on a deal worth $285 million USD  and the company has deployed more than $250 million USD previously. Masdar Clean Technology Fund operates jointly with Deutsche Bank with funding around $265 million USD.

Masdar Capital has shown immense interest in producing renewable energy investments and in 2010 the company solely invested more than $50 million USD in a Chinese wind energy company. The wind energy investments are used for the construction of 150 megawatt wind power producers and the implementation phase of the wind power venture is under progress. The economists of the International Energy Agency in conference mentioned that in the succeeding 25 years China would add more than 85 gigawatts of solar photovoltaic capacity, 105 gigawatts of nuclear capacity and 335 gigawatts of wind energy capacity. Alex O’Cinneide says they are optimistic and they have substantial deals in the pipeline that would get sufficient capital. The latest five year plan in China has attracted plenty of renewable energy investments from the international investing companies like Masdar Capital.

The global market has been experienced tremendous alterations and the business organizations in China have been allotted with free capital, in essence.  The clean energy projects should be implemented in many parts of the world, at the earliest. The investments risk and returns should be balanced and many investors find it hard to manage. Energy investments are experiencing a revolution and the energy produced are maximized in the ecological acceptable forms. On the other hand, there is a huge rush to exploit the earth for the satisfying the growing energy needs of the people. Remarkable research and developments are currently taking place in the hydrogen fuel cells and this would significantly replace the battery technology.
