This burned a lot of people who thought fuel cells tech were the future. Toyota has announced--and is bucking the trend--that it's embracing fuel cells. That said, he's concerned about Ballard which is involved in one specific technology, which can be hit or miss because technology changes so quickly. It's a safer bet under the GEX ETF.

There's a big debate over nuclear energy, which can go either way. But what do you do with the uranium after it's used? We overweight the risks of nuclear--it's not as bad as environmentalists think, though what to do with the uranium after use is a real concern. The price of green energy and storage--batteries--will become cheaper than nuclear in the future. That lower cost is the tipping point that will green energy more affordable than nuclear--but we're not there yet.

Renewable energy is down these days. Before, investors wanted the yield (bonds were paying so little). But now there's more risk-on and a move towards growth stocks, not dividends. So, now is a buying opportunity in NPI and this sector. He would own this for the long term.
