Alternative Energy Fund Launch by Guinness Atkinson

Guiness Atkinson Asset Management has launched an alternative energy fund for UK and European investors. The fund is managed by a team of three fund managers, Tim Guinness as the Lead Manager and Edward Guinness and Matthew Page as Co-Managers.

With a 50/50 top-down/bottom-up approach, the fund looks to identify the sub sectors within the space which have the greatest potential for growth and strong returns.

Tim Guinness said in an interview with Alt Energy Stocks, "I have been running a conventional energy fund since 1998 and have been following alternative energy stocks as a sub sector within the energy universe since then."

"Recently we have preferred wind and solar over fuel cells and biofuels but this is constantly under review." Guinness said, "We then screen the universe of 200 stocks we have identified to try and identify good companies that are cheap where sentiment towards them is improving and stock price action is positive. One tool we use is to screen by value, earnings momentum, economic returns vs peers, and a technical indicator."

Alternative energy includes, but is not limited to power generated through solar, wind, hydroelectric, tidal wave, geothermal, biomass or biofuels. Energy technology includes technologies that enable these sources to be tapped and also various manners of storage and transportation of energy, including hydrogen and other types of fuel cells, batteries and flywheels, as well as technologies that conserve or enable more efficient use of energy.

Procedure of loading batteries of an electrical vehicle by Aeolic system

The recharges of batteries, which supplies energy to the electric motor of a vehicle, will be carried out through an Aeolic System composed by the following elements:



-controller with load


The vehicle, being left over, will always have some air amount whose speed will be directly propertional to the same speed of the vehicle.

The air will enter in the autobody by the embrasures placed in the frontal part of the vehicle, and it will canalized towards the rotores.

The rotores could be one or more and they will be placed inside the auto body in a way not to hinder the advance of the vehicle creating friction.

The Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG) concurs of extracting the maximum

power by the rotor.

The controller with loads serves to prevent the damaging of the batteries.

The generated current will be “alternating current trifase” (AC) and will be converted from the rectifier in “direct current” (DC).

The generator, the controllers electronics, the rectifier and the batteries will be placed into the vehicle.

The direct current, finally, will be canalized, by a power cable , towards the batteries and it will recharge to them.

It will be also possible to load the batteries when the vehicle is stopped.

This is possible because the wind, investing the car from several points, will be put towards a rotor that will create described energy.

Purposes of the plan and advantages:

* to produce energy to cost 0 and 0 emissions, bringing a remarkable

economic, ecological and social advantage.

* the energy produced in march feeds the same march of the vehicle and there is no need to stop for the refueling.

* development of an innovative system based on rotators and generators placed into the autobody.
