How to profit from Britain's innovation explosion

  • Why creative destruction works

We're on the cusp of a revolution in the energy industry. It's one that could redraw the energy map of the world, give humanity the ability to tap essentially unlimited power sources, and – if you make the right investments – make a fortune for investors.

In short, we're living through a change in the way the world produces and consumes energy. It is a transition that's well under way. And it's being driven by the convergence of several key technological trends that are showing no sign of abating.

While you wouldn't be alone in thinking that solar power was further away than ever, you could be wrong. Solar is on the brink of becoming the world's dominant energy source.

With Opec sticking to its cut in production, the oil price is hovering around $50 a barrel. But Donald Trump could easily change that, says John Stepek.

US shale will put a cap on the oil price

The US shale oil industry is adding more new rigs every month than at any point in the past two years, which should serve to cap the oil price rebound.

Donald Trump’s energy revolution

The new president has vowed to slash green regulations and promote fossil fuels. But is this anything more than hot air? Simon Wilson reports.

Reasons to be bullish on oil

The quiet recovery in the oil price is a trend that hasn’t been getting as much attention as it should, but it may offer a trading opportunity, says Matthew Partridge.
