Invest in Green Energy
Invest in a portfolio to help transition to renewable energy sources by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through clean energy production.
“If aliens did visit us, I'd be embarrassed to tell them we still dig up fossil fuels from the ground as a source of energy.”
- Neil deGrasse Tyson
Energy comes from a variety of sources which can be categorized as renewable and non-renewable. Non-renewable energy sources are mined or extracted from Earth and have a limited supply, so they cannot be replenished for millions of years once they run out. One of the non-renewable energy sources is fossil fuels, which heavily contribute to the climate crisis emitting significant amount of greenhouse gases when burned. Fossil fuels are utilized in numerous ways, including in various industrial process, transportation and burned for energy. The combustion of fossil fuels also releases air pollutants that harm the environment and human health.
Renewable energy sources (also called clean energy sources) are naturally replenished, and in general, their supply is unlimited. Significant of renewable energy sources include wind, solar, hydro, geothermal and biomass. Their carbon footprint is minimal and, in general, much better for the environment. The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources is widely considered one of the main solutions to mitigate the climate crisis.

Why Invest in Green Energy?
Over recent years there has been an investment shift away from fossil fuels to green energy. This is not only driven by public demand for a lower carbon footprint, but also by declining costs of renewable energy technology, innovations in electric battery capabilities, governmental policy shifts. Over the long-term, we believe favorable changes in public opinion and economic fundamentals are likely to further benefit the industry. The size of the green energy market is estimated to reach $2 trillion by 2025 and has the potential to meet 80% of all energy demand growth over the next 10 years.
The SDG #7 Affordable and Clean Energy aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. We track specific metrics to measure and manage the impact of clean energy companies. FLIT is here to help you invest your resources into companies that are actually making a difference.
Plug Power Inc. (PLUG) has been the first to commercialize hydrogen fuel cell technologies. It has over 150 patents and provides hydrogen solutions for the mobility, material handling, and stationary power markets. The Company has deployed over 50,000 fuel cell systems for e-mobility, more than anyone else in the world, and has become the largest buyer of liquid hydrogen, having built and operated a hydrogen highway across North America. It has a strategic partnership with Airbus to decarbonize air travel and airport operations with green hydrogen; and Fortescue Future Industries to manufacture electrolyzer technology in Australia.
