One of the best ways to diversify your portfolio is to consider allocating some of your portfolio into new, emerging industries and the technologies that are needed to drive their growth. These industries can represent ground-floor opportunities which can potentially result in windfall gains. Some of these new industries and technologies include:

  • Fresh water generation technologies
  • Virtual/Augmented Reality Technology and its applications
  • The end of the Marijuana Prohibition, and
  • Clean, renewable energy production and delivery

Today we will focus on renewable energy. In just the past year, you may have read or heard about the following events occurring:
 

  • On a sunny and windy day last year (May 10, 2016), Germany generated nearly all of the power it needed from renewable energy.   For a short period of time, power prices turned negative, and consumers were actually paid to consume energy (Source: Bloomberg)
  • Global renewable power capacity overtakes coal as 500,000 solar panels are installed every day. Two new wind turbines are installed every hour in China.(Source: UK Telegraph)
  • 100% of the Municipal Power in Las Vegas is generated through solar energy (Source: BusinessInsider.com)
  • Elon Musk has powered an entire island in American Samoa with solar-generated electricity (Source: CNBC)

How does this affect Big Oil?

It's not a matter of "if"…It's a matter of "when"… 

And experts agree: The day of reckoning is here… 

At this moment, oil is caught in an absolute death spiral … 

Already, billionaires are dumping oil stocks at frenetic pace… 

Warren Buffett dumped his ENTIRE Exxon position, worth $3.7 billion.

Bill Gates unloaded nearly $1 billion worth of oil stocks. 

George Soros couldn't get out of oil fast enough, selling off whole stakes of multiple positions … 

This mass exodus comes alongside oil's fall to seven-year low, dipping below $35 per barrel for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis. 

This situation is so severe, that legendary billionaire energy-trader John Arnold says that "half the U.S. energy industry will be bankrupt in 6 months". 

"This is the end of fossil fuels," states CNN. 

Pundits would have you believe a temporary "global supply glut" is to blame. 

They couldn't be more wrong… 

The real reason is much more ominous, and could push oil as low as $10 per barrel. 

Make no mistake: This will decimate Big Oil's greedy profits… make OPEC obsolete… and crush the Saudi Royals and their radical oil regime… 

 Incredibly, this massive global shift all starts with simple grains of sand.

These tiny granules have unlocked an unlimited supply of fuel...

Enough fuel, in fact, to power the ENTIRE PLANET for over 36,000 years. And the cost of this fuel is zero. It’s free. 

The incredible thing is, this is a “universal fuel.” It can be used for everything... 

- It can power your car... 

- Light and heat your home... 

- Run factories... 

- Propel cruise ships... 

- It can even power the ENTIRE U.S. electrical grid... 

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), this fuel could soon become the #1 source of energy on the planet... surpassing oil, gas, and coal power. 

USA Today says this fuel is “sizzling hot”... 

And Forbes magazine simply calls the opportunity “massive”... 

Jon Wellinghoff, one of the world’s top energy experts and Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), says the use of this fuel is...

“...growing so fast it’s going to overtake everything... 
It could double every two years
.” 
- Jon Wellinghoff, Chairman, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 

That's Right. Take a look at sand.

Now, let's take a closer look...

Even closer still...

Thanks to a breakthrough in 
chemical engineering...

This fuel is so cheap – and so easily accessible – that Fortune 500 companies are rushing to set up their own “power companies.” 

Google, for example, is investing $300 million to do it... 

Apple is investing nearly $1 billion! 

Everywhere you look, America’s biggest companies are going all in... including: 

Facebook 
Amazon 
AT&T 
General Motors 
Costco 
Target 
Kaiser Permanente 
Johnson & Johnson 
FedEx 

And many more Fortune 500 companies are pouring money into this fuel at an almost unfathomable pace.

Why Are So Many Companies Jumping In?

Because it’s suddenly become so cheap, companies can invest millions UP FRONT, and still come out way ahead of the utility companies.

In fact, Walmart’s investment in this fuel is so enormous – and so cost-effective – the global retailer is projected to SAVE as much as $1 billion annually on energy costs. And that’s just the beginning... This free fuel can be “harvested” in most parts of the world... in huge quantities... and WITHOUT drilling, mining, or growing grain for ethanol or any other crazy biofuel. According to data from the U.S. Department of Energy, this fuel is so plentiful and powerful that in one single week it can produce 1,000 times more energy than oil, natural gas, and coal do in a full year – combined!

Harnessing the Sun’s Power

In 1954, there a solution to make generating energy from the Sun practical and affordable.

Scientists working for Bell Labs created a new way to capture these energy particles and turn them into usable energy. 

The way it works was a level of genius that would have made Einstein proud. The scientists fashioned a “solar cell” with metal conductors on the surface. 

When sunlight hits these conductors, energy particles are absorbed. And here’s where the magic happens. 

As the sun’s energy particles are absorbed, they knock the solar cell’s existing electrons loose. Because the solar cell is made of conductors, it is able to herd these electrons into a current and funnel it to an external device, such as a lightbulb. Creating the world’s first infinite source of electricity. 

The New York Times stated that this new discovery was: “The beginning of a new era, leading eventually to the realization of harnessing the almost limitless energy of the sun for the uses of civilization." Problem was, it was still so costly that it didn’t offer a viable alternative to oil, gas, or coal.  

Over the years, improvements were made. But still, harvesting energy from our nearest star was much more expensive than fossil fuels – roughly 110 times the cost of oil, gas, and coal. It worked fine for your handheld calculator, but it would never heat your home. Until now... Remarkable advancements in chemical engineering have cut costs by a stunning, 99%!  

Suddenly, sun power has – in many cases – become the CHEAPEST form of energy on the planet! Cheaper than coal. Cheaper than natural gas. And cheaper than oil.  In fact, you could cut the cost of oil in half, over and over again, all the way down to $1 per barrel, and solar would still look cheap! 

You want a strong, thriving economy? You want American workers to keep more of what they earn, and put less in the pockets of the greedy utility monopolies? Well, this is the Holy Grail! Consequently, solar is growing leaps and bounds. 

Solar capacity has jumped 20-fold in the U.S. alone. That’s a 2,000% increase! In addition, the industry added jobs 10 times faster than the rest of the economy. And while cloudy days were a problem in the past, one new technology is so effective it can collect solar power at NIGHT... while there is NO SUN! 

With new storage capabilities, it doesn’t take long to collect an inexhaustible supply of power. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 10,000 times the world’s total energy use is generated every second by the sun... Every 40 minutes, enough energy-filled sunlight hits the Earth to power the entire world for one full year. And the cost? That’s the best part. You see, the sun’s power isn’t just cheap... it’s free.


A revolutionary fuel source is poised to decimate Big Oil's obscene profits, make OPEC obsolete, and hand the United States 100% energy independence for the first time in 40 years.

Solar cells have always been big, bulky, and INEFFICIENT. In other words, they don’t capture much sunlight. And of the sunlight they do capture, only a SMALL PERCENTAGE is converted into usable energy. 

Consequently, the cost of solar power has been extremely high, as much as $76 per KWH. The company mentioned in the energy report has taken solar cells to a whole new level... helping bring the cost of solar power down by a stunning 99%. And the way it works is amazing. 

In fact, their patented technology turns grains of sand, right off the beach, into highly efficient, wafer-thin solar cells that deliver dirt-cheap energy. That’s right. Sand contains tiny particles of a bluish metalloid called “Si.” Research physicists have determined that Si contains 14 electrons, arranged in four different shells. This is a very unique molecular structure. In fact, Si is completely different than any other element in the entire universe, and IDEAL for converting sunlight into solar energy. You see, Si is able to SHARE its four outer-shell electrons with other atoms. The sharing phenomenon creates a chain-reaction that CONVERTS sunlight into usable energy. 

It’s a complicated process, and this company has taken it to a whole new level. You see, in its raw form, Si is full of impurities... These impurities inhibit the conversion process, making for expensive energy, once as high as $76 per KWH. That's what makes this company's patented technology such a remarkable breakthrough. First, raw Si is melted in a mono-crystalline electric furnace. During the melting process, a stream of Argon is pumped into the furnace to remove impurities and inhibit oxidation. The molten Si is then cast into square blocks and cooled. The blocks are then sliced into wafer-thin slices of pure Si… 

The technology is scientific genius and creates highly purified Si, ready to convert sunlight into ready-to-use power. In fact, this tiny company's patented solar cells set a NEW WORLD RECORD for power output. Incredible… and the big thing: the cost… Again, traditional solar cells delivered energy at a cost of $76 per KWH. This company's technology is so efficient, and creates such pure Si, they are supplying a utility company with solar at 5 cents per KWH. That's right. This company's technology is so significant that utility companies are throwing in the towel and buying solar power! Let me repeat that: This company is supplying solar at 5 cents per KWH!

Other Applications of New Solar Technologies:

1. Nighttime Solar An Israeli firm says it has developed a way to keep solar plants running at full capacity, 24/7, day and night!     This is a breakthrough that could revolutionize the solar industry.

2. Reverse Solar Imagine capturing “reverse sunlight” as it bounces OFF the earth and returns to space. This could double the     effectiveness of solar.

3. Liquid Solar Harvard’s done it again. This time, they’ve found a way to turn sunlight into liquid fuel. Sunlight-in-a-jug could       be coming soon. 

4. Solar Paint Imagine slapping a new coat of paint on your house, and turning your home into a mini-power company. Now imagine turning that dream into a reality for your car! That means no stops at the gas station because the fuel source is literally painted onto your vehicle. 

5. Ultra-thin and flexible solar cells A U.S. patent has been awarded for a solar cell that is 100 times thinner than a piece of paper. Amazing. The solar cells are incredibly flexible and lightweight, making for endless applications in both the military and commercial sector. 

6. Solar Roads That’s right. No need for fuel. Your car could one day run on the power generated by the road itself! 

Each of these Solar applications offers the potential for great wealth.

Conclusion

This article barely skims the surface of the potential of harnessing the sun's energy. Many of these technology enhancements are already being deployed around the world, offering a potential windfall investment opportunities.
