ABSTRACT
Focuses on the sudden surge in investment and financing interest to the U.S. alternative energy sector such as the acquisition of Zilkha Renewable Energy LLC, one of the largest wind-power development firms, by investment bank, Goldman Sachs & Co. Claim of detractors, who suffered from previous alternative energy booms in the 1980s and 1990s, that the interest is simply a by-product of short-term oil and gas cost hikes; Prediction of Royal Dutch/Shell Group that alternative energy will fairly soon no longer be considered an alternative; Factors that bankers claim are hindering investment in alternative energy; Prospects of the fuel cell market.
