The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on JA Solar & Trina Solar

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - Alternative or renewable energies are fuel sources other than those derived from fossil fuels and are typically not as harmful to the environment. While skyrocketing gas prices have led to increased attention on renewable energy, changes in government incentives in Europe and delays for certain projects has caused a pullback for some companies. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for the Solar Industry and provides equity research on JA Solar Holdings, Co. Ltd. (NASDAQ: JASO) and Trina Solar Ltd. (NYSE: TSL).

Recent data courtesy of Reuters shows that the renewable energy sectors have lagged fossil fuel energy stocks over the past couple of months. Alternative energy stocks are considered exceptionally vulnerable during economic downturns as these companies are dependent on subsidy programs. In addition, with global economic concerns at a high, climate change worries have been pushed to the backburner.

HSBC hasn't lost all confidence in the renewable energy sector. In a recent note, HSBC analysts argued that Emerging Markets are boosting alternative energy demand. Analysts at S&P go on to note that crisis at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant created "tremendous potential" in the land of the rising sun.

Despite solar heavyweights Italy and Germany cutting back on solar support amid growing economic turbulence in the Eurozone, Europe continues to drive the solar industry. Based on a study looking at five major solar markets -- Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Britain -- the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) said that power generated from solar modules in Europe could be competitive in relation to conventional forms of energy by the end of the decade. "Under the right policy and market conditions, PV competitiveness with grid electricity can be achieved in some markets as early as 2013, and then spread across the continent in the different market segments by 2020," EPIA said.
