Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

Prototype gravity-based energy storage system begins construction

As renewable energy generation grows, so does the need for new storage methods that can be used at times when the Sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing. A Scottish company called Gravitricity has now broken ground on a demonstrator facility for a creative new system that stores energy in the form of “gravity” by lifting and dropping huge weights.

If you coil a spring, you’re loading it with potential energy, which is released when you let it go. Gravitricity works on the same basic principle, except in this case the springs are 500- to 5,000-tonne weights. When held aloft by powerful cables and winches, these weights store large amounts of potential energy. When that energy is needed, they can be lowered down a mineshaft to spin the winch and feed electricity into the grid.

Gravitricity says that these units could have peak power outputs of between 1 and

The Feds Just Threw a Lifeline to California During Energy Crisis

The Department of Energy (DOE) announced on Sunday that Sec. Dan Brouillette, in response to an urgent request from the state of California, issued a Section 202 (c) emergency order to help prevent California’s already-faltering power grid from being completely overwhelmed. 

“I hereby determine that an emergency exists in California due
to a shortage of electric energy, a shortage of facilities for the generation of electric
energy, and other causes, and that issuance of this Order will meet the emergency and
serve the public interest,” reads a letter from the Assistant Secretary for Electricity Bruce Walker. 

The DOE order authorizes the emergency use of stationary and portable generators, as well as auxiliary engines on board ocean-going vessels berthed in California ports. The order suspends any laws, regulations or permits limiting the use of these power-generating machines. The order is set to expire just before midnight on September 13.

Electricity generation improves on the back of recovery in energy demand

The country’s energy demand is showing signs of recovery, as the decline in power demand narrowed in July 2020 (down 4.1 per cent; June 2020: down 10.9 per cent; May 2020: down 14.9 per cent), due to the gradual lifting of lockdown for certain economic activities, according to India Ratings & Research (Ind Ra).

The demand also showed a 6.1 per cent month-on-month improvement in July 2020. In the same month, all-India energy demand contracted 4.1 per cent year-on-year (yoy) for the fifth consecutive month to 112.4 billion units. Energy deficit was low at 0.1 per cent (July 2019: 0.6 per cent) as energy supply remained robust. Power demand declined for July 2020, amid the Covid-19-led lockdown, on account of a decline in commercial and industrial demand from major manufacturing States such as Maharashtra (down 5.6 per cent), Gujarat (down 9.6 per cent) and Tamil Nadu (down 15.5 per cent).

I’m Bullish on Clean Energy, but Stay Away From FuelCell Energy Stock

Readers of mine know that I’m very bullish on clean energy stocks, since I see the world in 2030 as one being populated with electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen/wind/solar power.  But one obscure, small clean energy stock which I haven’t rung the bull horn on is FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ:FCEL). That’s because in my opinion, FCEL stock is a bubble that should be avoided at current levels.

Remember, I’ve consistently pounded on the table on so many big and small clean energy stocks, like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), NIO (NYSE:NIO), Kandi (NASDAQ:KNDI), Arcimoto (NASDAQ:FUV), Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG), so on and so forth. But FuelCell is all hype.

There’s a lot of investor demand right now for clean energy stocks, mostly because the market is starting to see the future

Microgrids Are The Future Of Energy

The vision of a household with a solar rooftop, a battery pack, and an EV in the garage is not just Elon Musk’s vision of the future of energy. It is a vision that many proponents of the renewable shift share, and it may be growing increasingly more realistic, thanks to information technology.

Distributed energy resources, the small-scale generation facilities such as rooftop solar installations that generate power to be used either on-site or near the site of generation, are an essential part of the renewable energy future. And software platforms for the management of these small-scale generation facilities are the key to making them work, according to analysts from Wood Mackenzie. In a recent report, Wood Mac’s researchers said they expected the amount of solar generation capacity and storage in North America, Europe, and Oceania to rise twofold by 2025. In the United States alone, solar capacity and storage

Inverted Energy launches India made batteries for EVs, homes

New Delhi: Battery maker Inverted Energy has launched a new range of indigenously designed and engineered lithium batteries that are 20 per cent more efficient than the ones currently in the market.

This new range, which will be manufactured at the company’s facility in Okhla, has various applications including electric vehicles, solar plants, home storage and utility power.

Initially, these batteries will be given to selected electric vehicle manufacturers and solar projects and in the coming months will be rolled out for home users as well. These will be one of the first lithium batteries for home usage.

The lithium storage batteries bring big advantages over regular lead-acid batteries being used in Indian households. These batteries not only are light in weight and smaller in dimensions, they charge in less than half the time and last up to five-time as long. Importantly, Lithium batteries do not spill acid or emit
