Renewable Energy Could Fall Victim to Low Natural Gas Prices Warns IEA

Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Capstone Turbine and First Solar

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 4, 2012) - Clean energy stocks have struggled recently as concerns about a loss of subsidies and tax credits have led to growth concerns. The PowerShares Wilderhill Clean Energy Portfolio (PBW) is down more than 17 percent over the last month. Cheap natural gas prices in 2012 have recently become a nuisance to the renewable energy industry. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Renewable Energy Industry and provides equity research on Capstone Turbine Corporation (NASDAQ: CPST) and First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR).

The emergence of "fracking" has led to abundant supplies and low prices for natural gas. This has put pressure on the renewable energy industry which by comparison is more costly. When burnt, natural gas produces roughly 50 percent of the carbon emissions of coal. "Renewable energy may be the victim of cheap gas prices if governments do not stick to their renewable support schemes," said Fatih Birol, chief economist for the IEA.
