The solar market is difficult to read because it relies on quickly changing technology while being heavily tangled in politics and other sectors of the economy, such as the volatile price of fossil fuels. In addition, the wide range of solar technologies from quantum dots to nano-crystals make it difficult to track clear progress. Despite its popularity, solar energy has come under fire from critics who cite expensive kilowatt per hour (kWh) compared to other energy sources. The EIA states that in 2017, solar energy will be 55.3 percent more expensive than coal, 63.2 percent more expensive than nuclear, and 73.9 percent more expensive than wind.

From the Editor: You’re receiving special access to Private Briefing today because it contains a crucial conversation between Bill and Dr. Kent Moors, who uncovered the massive new energy demand source you’ve been hearing about. This particular briefing details one of the longer-term beneficiaries in the natural gas space… At the end of our October 21 update on Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSE: LNG) and the liquefied natural gas revolution, we promised to bring you an additional LNG recommendation. Today we’re keeping that promise.

There’s actually an easy way to differentiate the two. You see, Cheniere Energy owns the gas. Top 10 … Continue reading

Hence, the core business of one company can be a business service for another. The tertiary sector is being increasingly depended upon by firms which require business services that are not their core competence. The companies aim at functions and activities that are close to their core competence thereby becoming more competitive. By doing so, they can reap the benefits of economies of scale and operations.
