Green chip stocks (GCS) refer to publicly traded companies in the earth friendly industry.
Green market includes
- Geothermal Energy聽鈥 generated from the original formation of the planet and from radioactive decay of minerals.
- Solar Energy聽鈥 technologies such as solar heating, solar thermal electricity, solar photovoltaics, artificial photosynthesis and solar architecture.
- Wind Energy聽鈥 using wind turbines to make electrical power, windmills for mechanical power, windpumps for water pumping or drainage, or sails to propel聽ships.
- Water and Marine Energy聽鈥 the energy carried by ocean waves, tides, salinity, and ocean temperature differences can be harnessed to generate electricity. The movement of water in the world鈥檚聽oceans creates a vast store of kinetic energy, or energy in motion. Sometimes referred to as ocean energy or ocean聽power.
- Waste-to-Energy (WtE)聽鈥 the process of generating energy in the form of electricity or heat through combustion.
