Green chip stocks (GCS) refer to publicly traded companies in the earth
Green market includes
- Geothermal Energy – generated from the original
formation of the planet and from radioactive decay of minerals.
- Solar Energy – technologies such as solar heating, solar
thermal electricity, solar photovoltaics, artificial photosynthesis and solar
- Wind Energy – using wind turbines to make electrical
power, windmills for mechanical power, windpumps for water pumping or drainage,
or sails to propel ships.
- Water and Marine Energy – 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’s oceans creates a
vast store of kinetic energy, or energy in motion. Sometimes referred to as
ocean energy or ocean power.
- Waste-to-Energy (WtE) – the process of generating energy
in the form of electricity or heat through combustion.
- Green Building – a structure and using process that is
environmentally responsible and resource-efficient. Also known as green
construction or sustainable building.
- Smart Grid – a modernized
electrical grid that uses information and communications technology to
gather and act on information about the behaviors of suppliers and consumers, in
an automated fashion to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and
sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity.
- Green Infrastructure – a network for solving urban
changes by building with nature, including stormwater management, climate
adaptation, heat stress, biodiversity, food production, air quality, sustainable
energy production, clean water and healthy soils and quality of life through
- Green Transportation – Plug-in Hybrid Electric (PHEV)
Vehicles utilize rechargeable batteries that can be restored to full charge by
connecting a plug to an external electric power source, Hydrogen Fuel Cells
convert the chemical energy from hydrogen into electricity through a chemical
reaction with oxygen or another oxidizing agent.
- Organic Foods – produced using methods of organic
farming with limited synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical
fertilizers, and also not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or
chemical food additives.
- Carbon Trading – a form of emissions permit trading that
specifically targets carbon dioxide. A common method countries use in order to
reduce carbon emissions in an attempt to mitigate future climate change.
