At the boarding school in India we waited eagerly for power outages.
Blackouts for us kids meant we could light our candles and play with wax. We lit pencils, erasers, or anything we could find.
We could also avoid doing our homework. Instead of working, we just played in the dark.
Power outages were so common that we knew how to go to mass in the dark for dinner. And then we made our way back to our dorms with no lights.
We got ready for bed with a couple of kerosene-powered lanterns.
In India at the time, electricity was as much a luxury as it was a necessity. We knew how to live with or without.
That was then. In India and around the world, electricity and general energy are a necessity today. Life stops when there is no energy.
In the United States, energy is the lifeblood of our economy. And we are currently experiencing a historic transition to a new form of energy.
This new form of energy will disrupt at least three main parts of our economy. And I believe it will make a huge fortune for those who invest in it.
New energy: a megatrend
I present the fourth megatrend. This megatrend is new energy.
New energy is energy that comes from natural sources.
Sources such as sun, wind, waves or geothermal energy.
The other thing about new energy is that it is storable and portable.
After all, the last thing about new energy is that it is local, which means that you get your energy from somewhere near you, like your home.
When you put it together it will mean a revolution in the way we live, work and travel.
There is one company leading the new energy revolution … and it will be bigger than Amazon and Google combined.
You see, this company has products that touch every aspect of new energy, from getting its energy from natural sources, to storing it so it can be generated locally, to portability so it can be used for travel.
With those aspects together, this company will disrupt three massive industries.
The essence of “disruptification”
These three industries are the utility industry, the energy industry and the transportation industry.
My estimate is that the companies in the industries that disrupt and potentially wipe this single company have a market value of more than $ 7 trillion. This company has the potential to increase its current value by ten times, or 1,000%.
You might think this way of thinking is insane and just hype.
However, I can tell you that few people in the early days believed that Amazon would single-handedly dominate retail.
Or that Google almost has a monopoly on text advertising.
Or that Netflix would be a global video streaming powerhouse.
The reason these companies were able to build these amazing domineering companies is because the technology they used could be applied to already large categories of companies.
In other words, they were simply taking customers away from companies that were using old, outdated, outdated technology and business methods.
This is the essence of the “disorder” where the old way of doing things is replaced with new ones … in a short time.
Like what Netflix, Amazon, and Google did
Right now, the energy, utilities, and transportation industries are going through what Netflix, Amazon, and Google did for their various industries a few years ago.
The old will be obliterated and the new will take its place.
This is an exceptional opportunity to make massive profits when you are ready to get involved in the new ventures.
As you can imagine, I can’t give away the stock.
However, I’ll say that investors are going to lose an incredible amount of money buying stocks of old companies with old, outdated, outdated technology. Sooner than later, these companies will be wiped out and their stocks will go to zero.
