Blockchain Startup COSS Romanian pro-blockchain energy supply company, Eva Energy has announced that it will now be accepting gas and electricity bill payments in multiple cryptocurrencies.

FOREX INVESTORS  Blockchain Startup COSS Romanian pro-blockchain energy supply company, Eva Energy has announced that it will now be accepting gas and electricity bill payments in multiple cryptocurrencies. C.O.S.S.PTE LTD (COSS), the Singaporean blockchain company has partnered with the energy company, providing the payment solution necessary to make this breakthrough possible. Eva Energy is an outstanding player in Romania’s energy sector, renowned for its progressive thinking and passion for innovation. It is pioneering in cryptocurrency adoption within the industry.

Eva Energy has been pursuing innovation since its conception in 2012. The company was founded by Austrian entrepreneur Cristian Hagmann, an expert in voltage networks, IT energy services, network automation research, and energy market analysis. Hagmann has over 20 years of business experience within the respective fields. The company has been destined to be a pathfinder in subscription based power supply in Romania.

Explaining the background of Eva Energy, the company’s CEO Christian Hagmann said,



Blockchain Startup COSS

 

“In 2010, I was invited to a conference in Romania to speak about smart networks. Back then we were catering IT energy services and network automation research. We conducted the energy market analysis in Romania and discovered that the demand for smart metering was strong, that’s how Eva Energy was founded. To enhance its development, we applied an innovative approach to portfolio structuring, and were the first ones who tried it in Romania,”

In 2015 Eva Energy started re-thinking its payment media, partnering with PayPoint to enable payments for its bills via terminals in convenience stores across Romania, effectively reducing fees. More recently the company launched ‘energy cards’ to introduce its 70K+ customers to flexible payment methods.

By 2019, the company aims to cater gas and electricity to 300K customers, providing them with the option to pay their monthly bills in any cryptocurrency offered through the COSS payment gateway. According to its 5-year business plan, Eva Energy estimates to generate EUR 55.5M as a result of geographical expansion and growth by establishing distributor networks and direct operation in selective markets. The company will also aim to raise EUR 5M by issuing new products. Eva Energy also targets human resource investment and investment in assets to support its plans for growth and capitalization. For this purpose, the company will soon issue BITWATT, an energy trading platform and token.


Eva Energy is currently enabling cryptocurrency billing with not only Bitcoin but an entire array of cryptocurrencies. The provider of such an advanced solution is COSS that has developed a payment gateway / POS for its customers accepting cryptocurrency payments for their services and products to boost the adoption rate. COSS is currently supporting a broad range of cryptocurrencies on its exchange including BTC, ETH, LTC, DASH, XEM, LSK, PAY, BNT, SNM, VRS, ARK, TaaS, CVC.

The COSS platform continues to extend support for new coins on a frequent basis. There are times when a new cryptocurrency is added to the platform each week. In the coming days, it plans to include support for DDF and other tokens. Cristian Hagmann has joined the COSS advisory board as Corporate Strategy Advisor prior to the presale of COSS tokens. The tokens will be officially available for purchase from August 8, 2017, during the Token Swap (ICO). The two companies signed an MOU to seal their strategic partnership and to contribute to each other’s expansive development plans.

FBEC Worldwide Inc is engaged sales, distribution and marketing business for the promotion and sale of hemp based energy drinks.

Frontier Beverage Company, Inc., a Nevada corporation was incorporated on November 18, 2002 under the name Assure Data, Inc. On February 4, 2009, the Company changed its name to Frontier Beverage Company, Inc. The Company is in the business of development, marketing and distribution of New Age/Alternative Beverages. ‘New Age/Alternative Beverages’ is an industry categorization for a group of products that include energy drinks/infused water, fruit juices and drinks, dairy and dairy substitutes, and bottled/canned teas. On March 1, 2010, it acquired certain intellectual property rights for a proprietary relaxation beverage created and developed by Innovative Beverage Group Holdings, Inc. known as UnWind Ultimate Relaxation (UnWind). UnWind is a light beverage designed to relax the consumer’s mind and body without the negative hang-over and side effects of alcohol and other substances. The Company views UnWind as the polar opposite of mainstream energy drinks. Whereas energy drinks generally give the consumer a short burst of energy, UnWind by contrast, contains ingredients believed to calm and relax consumers. The Company’s proprietary and unique UnWind formulation uses natural ingredients generally known for their calming properties. The main ingredients of melatonin, rose hips, valerian root, and passion flower are combined with the powerful antioxidants of Goji and Acai. The principle ingredients of UnWind are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), meaning that contents in UnWind are generally recognized, among qualified experts, as having been adequately shown to be safe under the conditions of its intended use. However, some of the ingredients are considered dietary ingredients and have not been evaluated by the FDA for safety, effectiveness, or purity. The production and marketing of the Company’s beverages and snack products are subject to the rules and regulations of various federal, state and local health agencies, including in particular the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Best Renewable Energy Stocks That Beat Trump Politics

BUZ INVESTORS Renewable Energy Stocks For clean energy proponents in the U.S., Germany’s new world record on May Day was a sight for sore eyes

BUZ INVESTORS  Renewable Energy Stocks For clean energy proponents in the U.S., Germany’s new world record on May Day was a sight for sore eyes. “Sore” because politics is continuing to cast a shadow over clean energy stocks in 2017. And yet, scoring some of the best renewable energy stocks in 2017 is still possible, only if you’re looking in the right direction.

Just so you know, Germany set a new record over the long Labor Day weekend when roughly 85% of the electricity it consumed came from renewable energy. Ideally, examples like these should silence the naysayers who downplay the importance of renewable energy. Yet, look at the sorry state of affairs here in the U.S., where we are still torn between proving whether global warming is a hoax or a reality.

Are Renewable Energy Stocks in Limbo Under Trump?

The unintelligible views of Donald Trump on renewable energy are no secret. He thinks global warming is a Chinese conspiracy and the outcry on climate change is exaggerated. To him, renewable energy companies are the bad guys putting American coal miners out of work. But lucky for us, he can’t pull the plug on the Paris Agreement all by himself. He’d need popular support.



Renewable Energy Stocks

>>>TRADE NOW<<<

But the Trump administration is divided on whether to stay in the Paris Agreement or step out. The Paris Agreement, by the way, is the climate change pact signed by the U.S. and 194 other countries, which restricts them from releasing too many greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. In other words, it keeps a check on the amount of fuel we burn to ensure global warming is limited to below 35.6°F (2°C).

Three Best Renewable Energy Stocks in 2017

1: Brookfield Renewable Partners (BEP) Stock

First up is a very unique clean energy stock—Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE:BEP). This one-of-its-kind renewable energy company is actually a Canadian income trust.

In case you’ve never heard of these investments before, an income trust works nearly like a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). Basically, it pools the income coming from various assets and then distributes it to the unitholders, typically via dividends. Canadians call them the “CanRoys.”

Brookfield Renewable Partners is likewise a CanRoy that takes the income generated from its renewable energy assets and directs it to its stockholders, or more appropriately, unitholders. With a long-term objective to deliver 12%-15% in annualized returns to its unitholders, this is the kind of investment I’d want to buy, tuck under my pillow, and sleep on, for good.

BEP stock

2: JinkoSolar (JKS) Stock

I’ve had this company on my radar longer than I remember. Being one of the world’s largest solar energy companies, JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE:(JKS) takes a special spot on the podium. This Chinese company manufactures and supplies solar panels around the globe.

Now, since it’s a Chinese company, you might guess that its biggest market must be China. But you’ll be surprised at how diversified its customer base actually is.

Through 2016, China only accounted for 40% of its total product shipments, while the rest of the world did away with the bigger 60%. North America (the U.S. and Canada) were the second biggest market at 32%, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the emerging markets of India and Brazil.

JKS stock

3. Tesla (TSLA) Stock

And finally, how can a list of best clean energy stocks ever be complete without a mention of this revolutionary company?

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:(TSLA) is often wrongfully quoted as a car company. Nothing could be farther from truth, especially now that, following the acquisition of its “cousin” company, Tesla has truly emerged as a solar technology giant in the U.S.

It’s true that prior to the SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:(SCTY) acquisition, Tesla was more focused on building cars and solar batteries. But after this acquisition, Tesla now owns a complete residential and commercial solar energy portfolio.

TSLA stock

Top 7 Clean Energy Stocks for 2017

|Chart | Calendar   | TRADE NOW | Clean Energy

Investing in Clean Energy Stocks

BUZ INVESTORS   Clean Energy Stocks Renewable energy stocks are a political football for Democrats and Republicans, but investors should ignore the partisan bickering. The fact is, you can make a lot of money off the top renewable energy companies. Why? Because fossil fuels are doomed in the long run, and alternative energy sources will become the dominant system sooner or later.

It’s easy to roll your eyes at alternative energy sources, I get it. It’s annoying when Leonardo DiCaprio struts off a private jet and lectures you about conservation. Nothing makes you want to invest in clean energy stocks less.

When you’re sitting on a beach in the Bahamas, you can start thinking about politics. Until then, keep your eye on top clean energy stocks.

In fact, here are a few facts to prove my point:



Clean Energy Stocks

>>>TRADE NOW<<<

What you’re seeing is capitalism at work. Creative destruction. Companies are building solar panels and wind farms because the economics for it are better than fossil fuels—not because they want to save the environment (or at least that’s not the only reason).

Top Renewable Energy Companies

Don’t imagine that these changes will happen overnight.

The oil industry is still powerful, which is why I’m leaning towards renewable companies with solid cash flows. Show me the money! Don’t ask me to rely on the goodwill of other investors.

It’s not like the fossil fuel industry is going to roll over and die. Between the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, and Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:(XOM), they certainly don’t lack influence.

Clean Energy Stocks List

So if we know that Exxon and its compadres will give renewables a rough time, where do we put our money? Here’s a clean energy stocks list for you to consider.

Ticker Company Price Yield
$CAFD 8Point3 Energy Partners LP $13.19 7.78%
$ABY Atlantica Yield PLC $19.63 5.09%
$NEP Nextera Energy Partners LP $33.12 4.41%
$CVA Covanta Holding Corp $14.10 7.09%
$PEGI Pattern Energy Group Inc $29.43 5.62%
$HASI Hannon Armstrong Sustnbl Infrstr Cap Inc $21.74 6.07%
$CSIQ Canadian Solar Inc. $13.54
  1. A “sponsor” company creates a publicly-traded subsidiary—the yieldco.
  2. The sponsor then builds an alternative energy project.
  3. It puts that project up for sale, giving the yieldco the first option to buy.
  4. The yieldco buys and operates the project.
  5. The yieldco passes its profits through to shareholders.

Investors can rack up juicy returns on these kind of stock

1. 8Point3 Energy Partners LP

There’s a funny story about the ticker symbol for 8Point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:CAFD). The company didn’t pull “CAFD” out of a hat—it chose those letters to stand for “Cash Available For Distribution.”

CAFD stock chart

2. Atlantica Yield PLC

In addition to its attractive yield, Atlantica Yield PLC (NASDAQ:(ABY) has also provided investors with a fair amount of capital gains. This is in large part due to the “divorce” from Abengoa SA (BME:ABG), Atlantica’s original sponsor.

Abengoa SA went bankrupt last year, causing no end of problems for its subsidiaries. Several projects that were financed by debt (and were earmarked for yieldcos) were left hanging. This was a dangerous time for PLC stock, but the company appears to have emerged relatively unscathed.

ABY stock chart

3. Nextera Energy Partners LP

Unlike most other yieldcos, Nextera Energy Partners LP (NYSE:(NEP) has a great relationship with its parent company. The elder Nextera has held up its end of the bargain really well, even during the worst days of the yieldco crash.

NEP stock chart

4. Covanta Holding Corp

Covanta Holding Corp (NYSE:(CVA) isn’t your ordinary renewable either. Does it operate solar energy farms? No. Does it have a few wind power projects? No.

Covanta turns waste into electricity—that’s its business.

CVA stock chart

5. Pattern Energy Group Inc

Pattern Energy Group Inc (NASDAQ:(PEGI) is somewhat unique among yieldcos. Rather than load up its portfolio with solar firms that would be in direct competition with all the rest, it focuses on the less competitive wind farm business.

PEGI stock chart

6. Hannon Armstrong Sustnbl Infrstr Cap Inc

Hannon Armstrong Sustnbl Infrstr Cap Inc (NYSE:(HASI) is an outlier on the list because it doesn’t actually build or operate anything—it is a financial firm.

HASI stock chart

7. Canadian Solar Inc.

Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:(CSIQ) is on the leading edge of cost-cutting in the solar sector. For years now, the company has automated its manufacturing process in a bid to slash expenses. And you know what? It’s working.

Even retail solar companies like SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:(SCTY), which is now a part of Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:(TSLA), use modules from Canadian Solar. The company’s shares were obviously affected by the industry-wide slump, but we’re looking for a strong return as the company starts to sell off its completed projects.

What Are the Best Solar Energy Stocks for 2017?

Is It the Right Time to Invest in Solar Energy Stocks?

BUZ INVESTORS Best Solar Energy Stocks Exactly a year ago, a financial tsunami hit the solar industry—one fiasco big enough to wipe off fortunes. Investors in clean energy stocks saw their investments selling for pennies on the dollar.

BUZ INVESTORS  Best Solar Energy Stocks Exactly a year ago, a financial tsunami hit the solar industry—one fiasco big enough to wipe off fortunes. Investors in clean energy stocks saw their investments selling for pennies on the dollar. Green energy enthusiasts are now in two minds whether or not to invest in solar energy stocks. It’s true that finding the best solar energy stocks today is almost like looking for a needle in a haystack. And yet, it is not impossible. I promise.

The Sunedison Inc (OTCMKTS:SUNEQ) debacle is still fresh in our minds. And if you were an unfortunate investor, that painful memory will probably remain etched on your brain forever. But we at Profit Confidential had delivered the forewarning of an impending Enron-like bankruptcy nearly six months in advance. If you were paying attention, you would have managed to survive that disaster.




Best Solar Energy Stocks

Now, a year later, we are hearing that another yieldco may be in trouble. Yes, First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR) is planning on selling its stake in its yieldco, 8Point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:CAFD), which leaves the latter in the lurch. (Source: “Owners of Solar Yieldcos Head Toward Door Marked ‘Sell’”, Bloomberg Quint, April 11, 2017.)

Should You Buy Solar Energy Stocks at All?

Solar stocks are like any other equity investment. And we know that no investment comes without risks. So we can’t tar all solar stocks with the same brush. My short reply to that question would be: Yes, sure, if you understand the business!

The skeptics are worried about solar energy stocks for one particular reason. How are these companies going to cope with Donald Trump in office?

It is no debate that our President is on the wrong side of the history. Yes, getting a man who thinks global warming is a hoax to support green energy over fossil fuels would be a tough egg to crack.

Best Solar Energy Stocks List

Now, finding the the best stocks to invest in is a tough row to hoe—not because they are elusive, but because they are difficult to decipher. I’ve managed to track down three candidates that could be the best solar energy stocks to invest in right now.

Market Cap Year-to-date Return 5-Year Return
JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.                                 $546 million 12% 202%
Solaredge Technologies Inc                $639 million 28% -11% (IPO-ed in 2015)
Tesla Inc $49 billion 44% 832%

1: JinkoSolar (JKS) Stock

This company has been on my watchlist for nearly five years, going through many ups and downs, yet remaining strong. Like all other solar companies, this one, too, has faced thinning margins. And yet it has maintained its cost leadership.

2: Solaredge (SEDG) Stock

In an industry flooded with highly leveraged companies, finding a company like Solaredge Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SEDG) could be as rare as hen’s teeth. Believe it or not, my friends, this company boasts a clean balance sheet.

That’s because Solaredge doesn’t manufacture PV cells or modules like JinkoSolar, which is a capital intensive business. Instead, it sells inverters that are cheaper to make. These inverters convert the energy captured by solar panels into electricity that can be fed to the wiring to power your house or office. Simple put; Solaredge is your middleman in the solar energy business chain.

3: Tesla (TSLA) Stock

What is a car company doing on a list of solar stocks, you ask? I say, the company dropped the word “Motors” from its name for a reason. Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is no longer just an automaker. Since its acquisition of SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY), Tesla has become a solar energy powerhouse.Like up on FACEBOOK

The Whole US Energy Picture in a Single Chart (Almost)

BUZ INVESTORS US Energy Picture At the moment, fossil fuels make up the lion’s share of our energy consumption, but it hasn’t always been that way. Wood and water fueled America up until the end of the 19th century, when coal took off as the latest and greatest energy source. Since then, carbon-intensive coal has been supplanted by oil and gas and coal’s importance is on the wane in this country; the vast majority of coal-fired power plants are over thirty years old.

Over time, the energy picture has only become more complex and chaotic, with fossil fuels of all kinds now battling it out with renewables and nuclear to fuel America.

US Energy Picture

So, where is American energy headed in the near-term? Looking back on Obama’s first term makes clear there aren’t likely to be radical changes in the near future. In his State of the Union address Obama laid out the “all-of-the-above” approach to energy, supporting renewables, as well as developing America’s fossil fuel resources.

Sure enough, this policy package has come under attack from those who view it asinsufficiently supporting renewables, or as unfairly penalizing fossil fuels. Greens would like to see America take its cue from Germany, where the government has set ambitious targets to overhaul the energy system, becoming 80 percent renewable by 2050.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) — Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has released their annual US energy consumption chart (Click for larger image). Yes, it looks like spaghetti, but it contains a lot of useful information.

Revenue from the carbon levy will provide the funds for rebates and incentives for families and communities to invest in energy-saving household products, solar panels and retrofits of homes and buildings.

“Alberta’s homebuilders are increasingly focused on providing customers with energy-efficient homes as homeowners look for ways to keep their operating costs low. Having a dedicated energy efficiency agency located in Calgary will help promote the benefits of energy efficiency across the province and make homeowners more aware of the straightforward ways they can save money on an ongoing basis.”

Ryan Scott, President and CEO, Avalon Master Builder

Energy Efficiency Alberta is offering many opportunities this year to help Albertans save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Government is supporting energy efficiency

“The government is leading by example, finding opportunities to save money and reduce emissions through energy efficiency. Renewable energy technologies such as solar PV along with efficient retrofits will create new and diverse job opportunities for Albertans.”

Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks and Minister Responsible for the Alberta Climate Change Office

The Farm Stewardship Centre serves as a valuable resource for producers and other partners to explore innovative ways to care for the environment and make informed decisions related to environmental stewardship. The staff develop, support and deliver the province’s On-Farm Energy Efficiency and On-Farm Solar PV Programs which fund energy-efficiency improvements and solar panels on Alberta farms.

The Government of Alberta is committed to finding ways to boost energy efficiency across the province, from government buildings to homes and businesses. As the province invests in schools, hospitals and other infrastructure to protect the services Albertans care about, government also ensures that the efficiency, costs and environmental impacts of those facilities are taken into account.
