The Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement aimed at cutting greenhouse gas emissions, has radically changed the global market for green technology. The demand for clean energy has increased, causing an influx of new companies producing renewable energy products and creating cleaner processes for fossil fuel consumption. The question is: how can we, as investors, take advantage of this growing market? Through research into the different sectors of the green energy market, this paper breaks down each type of renewable energy, providing an evaluation of the various investment options. Comparing these investments with the different betting options in roulette, the paper moves from low risk, low return investments to more potentially lucrative options. Ultimately, the readers are offered the advice of analysts and speculators on individual companies in which to invest, including the stock quote and quarterly earnings of each company. This will provide the opportunity to not only support the growth of sustainable, green energy, but to profit from the choices made.
