Renewable Energy Stocks Sector Close- Up on Ethanol Stocks and Sustainable & Electric Transportation, Green Automotive Stocks

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC, Canada | Posted on December 27th, 2007

Ethanol stocks received a much needed boost, on the mandate of higher fuel economy standards, reduction of dependence on foreign oil and annual production of renewable fuels to increase to 36 Billion gallons by 2022.

According to Calyon Securities analyst, Kelly Dougherty, "The ethanol stocks should respond favorably to the recent passage of the Energy Bill as the sector should benefit from the increased domestic RFS which mandates use of 36 billion gallons annually by 2022. This should alleviate oversupply fears as more demand will be mandated with a funded path toward further infrastructure build-out and commercialization of cellulosic ethanol, which should support higher future ethanol prices." Additionally Calyon Securities commented," The increased RFS should result in continued infrastructure build-out, opening of new markets, and increased discretionary blending along the path to commercialization of cellulosic which should support higher ethanol prices. We believe VSE/USBE will be well-positioned given its larger scale and potential for lower costs as well as its innovative stance on new technologies (corn oil extraction and investments in cellulosic ethanol)."

VeraSun Energy Corporation (VSE) issued the following statement December 19th, "We applaud the work of our leaders in Washington, D.C., for their vision in putting our country on a path toward greater energy diversity and sustainability. The expanded Renewable Fuels Standard will significantly reduce our country's dependence on foreign oil and extend our nation's fuel stream." Another milestone in the Energy Bill is the requirement for a significant increase in average fuel economy to a 35 mpg fuel economy standard by 2020. Electric Vehicle manufacturer ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) CEO Steve Schneider, noted, "Our plug- in electric cars and trucks exceed current and future standards with zero emissions and costs at 3 cents per mile for electricity."
