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.

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.

Oil prices will stay low for a long time yet

At a meeting in Algiers a few weeks ago, Opec – which pumps 40% of the world’s oil – said it wanted to reduce production to help shore up low oil prices. But that now seems unlikely.

Betting on change in Venezuela

Nicolás Maduro’s government is keen not to scare off foreign creditors and has prioritised debt service over other urgent needs.

Steer clear of oil junk bonds

Energy companies may be in much better shape that they were, but their revival in the junk-bond market is merely inflating a massive bubble further.
