    Bill gates is investing in Pacific Ethanol (PEIX ). Here's a story:

    On the electric car front, one major manufacturer taking a chance on a mass-market EV is Mistubishi. Here's a story:

    Subaru and Mini Cooper are also in the planning stages of EV design.

    *

    What will drive a successful future EV is a revolutionary battery design. Some of the more promising ventures:

    *

    -EEstor of Texas has a truly revolutionary design based on ultracapacitors. These batteries never wear out, and can be charged in minutes. Several large venture capitalists are on board, (Colin Powell is associated, too) but there is no stock offered for sale at the moment. Worth keeping an eye on. Link:

    -Firefly Energy has redesigned the 100-year-old lead acid battery to be many times more efficient, without increasing manufacturing complexity or cost. Improved lead-acid batteries could easily drop into existing applications, and make truly inexpensive electric cars possible. Link:

    -Altair Nanotechnologies have improved the Lithium Ion battery, making it both safer and more durable. The Li-Ion battery is currently the best hope for giving electric cars a 200 to 300 mile driving range. Link:

    There's more, too Startup American electric car companies like http://teslamotors.com and http://www.phoenixmotorcars.com may prosper - it's too soon to tell.

    Good luck!

    For alternative fuels I would recommend Archer Daniels ADM or Bunge BG. I personally own Nova Biofuels NVBF.ob. This is a small company that is building 4 biodiesel refineries. Worth a look. Pacific Ethanol PEIX also looks interesting.

    The person who responded ADM and Toyota gave you sound advice. ADM is numero uno in ethanol and Toyota the same in electric cars. How about windmills? VWSYF.PK a pure play. Don't let the pink sheet suffix frighten you, this is a Danish company. Many foreign companies are only traded on the pink sheets.
