Wind Energy ETFs for Green Investment

Wind energy ETFs for public trading

Find green business solutions
According to Seeking Alpha (June 11, 2008), countries with the most installed capacity of wind power include Germany, US, Spain, India and China with China leading the growth by tripling its capacity in 2007 over 2006. Some expect China to be the leader in wind power generation in just a few years.

Both PowerShares and First Trust Advisors have filed docs with the SEC to provide Wind Energy ETFs.

The PowerShares Global Wind Energy ETF (EDGAR) requires a minimum market cap of 200 million and will likely include some or all of the big wind players such as Vestas Wind Systems (Other OTC: VWDRY.PK) (Denmark), Clipper Steam Turbine (China), Gas Turbine Efficiency (Sweden), Gamesa Corp Technologica (Spain), Windflow Technology (Other OTC: WFLWF.PK - News)(New Zealand) or Wind Energy America of Eden (United States).

The First Trust ISE Global Wind Energy ETF (EDGAR) will be made up of 2/3 pure plays and 1/3 of companies with a portion of their sales from wind and include companies of all sizes.

The current way to play wind with a diversified strategy is through the Market Vectors Global Alternative Energy ETF (NYSEArca: GEX - News) which lists Vestas Wind Systems (Denmark) as its largest holding at just under 13% of the fund.
