Biomass energy investments, including biodiesel and ethanol investments, offer a terrific opportunity as long as caution is used. Do not invest simply because a company or stock is in the biomass energy sector. Do your homework, and locate the high quality biorefinery companies that are solid and stable. These are the companies who are going to come out ahead when biomass energy starts being used on a wide scale. Look for biorefinery investments where the company is already using the technology, not just developing ideas. Many ideas can be developed, but until one becomes used the company should not be considered a sound investment. Some alternative energy opportunities do not have a long history, and this does not necessarily mean a bad thing. Look at the history length but also performance, the number of biorefinery plants in operation or scheduled to be built shortly, and other factors that may show more important data. Relying solely on the length a stock has been traded will cause you to miss some good ethanol investment opportunities. The location of the biorefinery plants is also important, because a plant in Alaska that uses corn means very high transportation costs, both in terms of finances and in terms of pollution caused by the transportation process.
