A Long-Term Play On Diversity In Renewable Energy

Investors are always looking for the next big thing, and those who favor the energy space are no different. It has been known for some time that the world is moving away from fossil fuels, but what is still not clear is what it is moving towards. Will it be solar, wind, or wave power that generates the bulk of the electricity in the future, or will it be nuclear technology, now that there has been a breakthrough in that field? All of those will probably play a part, but the most likely scenario is that the world will depend on a combination of renewable energy sources in decades to come.

Given that, the trick for long-term investors is to find renewable energy sources that are currently under-utilized, and a recent article by Haley Zaremba on Oilprice.com highlighted one of them. In the piece, Haley discusses the advantages of geothermal energy, most notably that it is what is known as "baseload power". Energy derived from the heat at the Earth's core is constant, so doesn't need any complex and expensive storage facilities, giving it an advantage over things like solar and wind that produce only when the sun shines or the wind blows.

As I read Haley's excellent piece my mind, as it usually does, turned to one question. If the potential of geothermal energy is about to be unleashed, how can investors profit from that? The choices are somewhat limited, but there is one company that catches the eye.
