Seizing the Opportunity
• BE has not missed a dividend payment for 6 years since it was established in 2015.
• Every shareholder will be paid a 8% dividend monthly. BE’s dividend has been growing steadily, with a 26.41% increase over the past three years, all with a very conservative payout ratio of 49.45%.
• The American power sector, specifically the renewable energy industry is one of the most stable in the world, and should it fail we would have much larger problems than our stock portfolio.
• Its historic beta of 0.77 ensures it is a safe choice in the market and an effective anchor for a portfolio.
Like the Coalition, the Fund brings together individuals with the capital, the commitment, and the relationships to navigate the exceptionally complex process of developing and deploying breakthrough energy technologies. Our goal is to generate a financial return on our investments, each of which will have the potential of significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We know that doing so requires creativity and flexibility, and we are eager to operate in novel ways to help pioneer energy solutions for the future.
Our first investing principle is to leverage innovation as broadly as possible. We don’t limit ourselves to early- or late-stage companies; to small, medium, or large enterprises; or to particular geographies or technologies.
One of the biggest challenges to investing in solutions to climate change is scale: things like agriculture, housing, and transportation that emit greenhouse gases operate at scales vastly larger than other human activities.
As a result, fully deploying new technologies will take decades, not years. Given this timeline,
it is critical not just to
respond to today’s circumstances but also to anticipate tomorrow’s urgent needs.
