The need for alternative energy is growing rapidly, regardless of the impact of carbon and other GHGs. Alternative energy covers all novel sources from renewable technologies to technologies from extracting traditional fuels from new sources, such as oil shale. BRAVE Partners seeks to evaluate all emerging alternative energy technologies to differentiate the areas that the firm believes are viable and therefore investable, from those which are purely speculative research. The firm views the energy industry as a global, interconnected entity. The current issues facing the energy sector are:

  • Developing economically viable, sustainable, low carbon sources of energy
  • Infrastructure and distribution networks
  • Regulatory and government action uncertainty
