Emerging markets dominated investment in clean energy in the first quarter of 2018, with more than 40% of funding going to projects in China, while there were notable developments in Mexico, Morocco, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Total investment for the first three months of the year was $61.1 billion, 10% lower than the same period in 2017, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). Using slightly different criteria, Clean Energy Pipeline said that the figure was $62.1 billion.

One reason for the fall in investment was a 19% drop in solar funding, partly as a result of a 7% fall in the price of photovoltaic equipment over the past year, and partly because of weaker activity in some markets.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Is Musk capable of running a company? Absolutely. Let’s not forget that this guy started Zip2 and sold it for $340 million back in 1999. His X.com company was merged with another to eventually form PayPal Holdings Inc.   (PYPL) before selling to eBay Inc.   (EBAY) . Musk then founded SpaceX (which was just valued at $25 billion), co-founded Tesla and was an important investor in getting SolarCity up and running before it went public.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Natural gas for transportation supplierClean Energy Fuels Corp(NASDAQ:CLNE) reported earnings on May 10, and while the company was profitable on both a GAAP and adjusted basis, growth — measured in gallons of natural gas delivered — slowed to almost a trickle, even when adjusted for last year’s sale of the biomethane business. At the same time, the cyclical nature of its station construction and expansion business also affected the results, playing a role in a big decline in revenue.

Yet even with these concerns, there were some positives on earnings day that investors should now factor into the thesis for the company, including a big announcement prior to earnings that multinational energy giantTotalwas taking a 25% stake in the company and would partner with it in an upcoming program to help accelerate adoption of heavy-duty natural gas trucks in the U.S.

Clean Energy is counting on it being the dawn of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles. Image source: Clean Energy Fuels.

Skip Schweiss: The Real Reason the Industry Is Fighting the DOL Fiduciary Rule

Martin Shkreli, once dubbed “the most hated man in America,” is now a convicted felon.

Shkreli, notorious for raising the price of a potentially life-saving drug by 5,000 percent, was found guilty Friday of defrauding investors in two hedge funds and in Retrophin Inc., a pharmaceutical company he co-founded.

The government painted Shkreli as a conman and habitual liar. They said his deceit involved not only the performance of his funds and how he used investor money, but his educational background and prior investing experience. Jurors were shown what prosecutors said were sham consulting agreements that Shkreli drafted as part of one of his many schemes to pay back some investors.

Prosecutors said Shkreli boasted to potential hedge fund clients that he was managing as much as $100 million when the net value of one of his funds fell to minus 33 cents, and never held more than $3 million.
