Volatile Demand for Wind Turbines Pressures GE and American Superconductor

The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on American Superconductor and General Electric

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - Alternative or renewable energies are fuel sources other than those derived from fossil fuels and are typically not as harmful to the environment. These days, fossil fuels are considered dirty and dangerous and are on their way out with renewable energy on its way in. This year investors have begun looking across the whole spectrum of renewable energy such as biofuels, solar, wind and geothermal energy. Indeed, more of both public and private investments are being made to make renewable energy affordable and reliable, creating a lot of incentive, but also clouding the competitive landscape for these industries. The Bedford Report examines the Alternative Energy Market and provides research reports on American Superconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: AMSC) and General Electric Corporation (NYSE: GE).

Wind Energy stocks are once again in the spotlight as the Obama administration looks to boost use of wind power and take steps to speed-up the approval process for offshore wind energy leases. The Obama Administration argues that renewable energy represents both a means to reduce reliance on petroleum as well as a way to boost American manufacturing and jobs. According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), wind is about a quarter the cost of solar power. Back in 2008, the AWEA estimates Wind-power projects created 35,000 new jobs.

General Electric is one of the world's leading wind turbine suppliers with over 15,500 wind turbine installations worldwide comprising more than 218 million operating hours. Last Friday the conglomerate announced that it will supply its 2.5-megawatt wind turbine technology to power the Zensko wind farm, a new facility being developed in north western Poland.

American Superconductor makes technology for wind turbines and power utilities. Earlier this month shares of the company fell more than 50 percent after one of its customers refused to accept contracted shipments of wind turbine core electrical components and spare parts. American Superconductor said the customer, China's Sinovel Wind Group, may be planning to reduce inventory levels before accepting further shipment.
