The article was titled - The five renewable energy predictions for 2018

Within the article it mentioned - Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) analysts have outlined the ten factors that will be leading the sustainable energy transition.

They refer to the recently released (today) BNEF’s 10 Predictions for Energy in 2018 linked below. The ENERGY 10 factors mentioned are below, but not all Ten are RENEWABLE ENERGY related, which is what the article was about - my guess smile.gif

1. $330 BILLION CLEAN ENERGY INVESTMENT, AGAIN
2. SOLAR TO 100GW – AND BEYOND!
3. WIND INSTALLATIONS EDGE HIGHER AGAIN
4. BATTERY PACK PRICES FALL, DESPITE METAL PRESSURE
5. ELECTRIC VEHICLE SALES AT 1.5 MILLION
6. AUTONOMOUS CARS NEAR 10 MILLION-MILE MARK
7. FURTHER RISES IN U.S. GAS OUTPUT AND GENERATION
8. LNG TRADE TOUCHES $120 BILLION
9. COAL SLIPS THROUGH TRUMP’S FINGERS
10. COAL MAKES A LAST STAND IN INDIA, CHINA BUILDS SMALLER SOLAR

...Solar and wind power generation will continue to grow, with renewables playing a greater role in the world's energy generation mix, while battery developments will boost renewable energy reliability and aid the spread of electric vehicles...

you said TEN, the article lists FIVE (with some past numbers, trends and forecasts padding out the article):
1. Hundreds of billions invested in clean energy
2. Solar to bloom
3. Wind to power ahead
4. Batteries to become more affordable
5. Electric cars to become more common

And it could really be boiled down to ONE factor shaping clean and renewable energy in 2018, as pt.1 will lead to the subsequent four:

A look at Japan’s Renewable-Energy Revolution from Bloomberg

QUOTE
These images, from a series of flights over the Tokyo and Kobe/Osaka regions of Japan, show a range of photovoltaic projects on former golf courses, quarries, dams, man-made islands and floating projects on ponds and reservoirs.

While the scale of renewable-energy projects may be smaller than large utility-scale projects in the U.S., Japan’s approach adds a new chapter to our ongoing conversation about energy and climate change. —Jamey Stillings

Photographs from Jamey Stillings’s Changing Perspectives: Japan will be on view at Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, July 13 – August 5, 2017 and at the Houston Center for Photography in Houston, July 14 – August 27, 2017.

China Is Adding Solar Power at a Record Pace

QUOTE
China’s lead as the largest market in the world measured by the number of panels. China’s additions in the first six months of the year alone are equal to more than half of the total installed solar base in the U.S. at the end of 2016, according to data compiled by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

“Natural demand is ramping up along with declining solar costs and the improved returns of power stations,” Alex Liu, China utilities and renewable energy analyst at UBS Securities, said in a note.

China’s demand momentum is expected to continue in the third quarter, he said.

Another couple are Infigen (IFN) and Redflow (RFX). Infigen is a windfarm operator and is getting into solar PV farms as well. Redflow is a battery maker targeting up to grid scale back-up and balancing.

I offer no comment if they are worth investing in. It's your money, do what lets you sleep at night.

A few from Bull .com today , looks as though these stocks have been beaten around a bit so might be worthy of going on your watch list for any recovery.

I'm looking to invest in energy sectors, especially in renewable energy as I believe they will be in trend in near future.

Please share your thoughts about renewable energy sectors or companies that you are interested or investing in.
