WILDERHILL CLEAN ENERGY INDEX® (ECO)

How to 'buy the Index.'

An investor cannot directly buy an index.

An independent Fund, the PowerShares WilderHill Clean Energy Portfolio, symbol PBW, seeks to mirror the performance of ECO. Investors who wish to trade it and hence the volatile clean energy sector defined by WilderHill Clean Energy Index can contact their Broker or PowerShares directly.

An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) calculates intra-day, like the Index (ECO). Generally speaking, ETFs can carry the characteristics of intra-day trading and transparency.

This still-emerging clean energy sector and therefore ECO, has been and clearly remains, highly volatile.




WILDERHILL NEW ENERGY GLOBAL INNOVATION INDEX (NEX)

In early 2006 and together with partners Bloomberg New Energy Finance based in London, and Josh Landess based in the U.S., we launched the WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Index (NEX) to track the important companies in clean energy worldwide, but that are mainly traded outside the United States. More than half the stocks in NEX are generally listed on exchanges outside the U.S.: hence there is significant non-correlation with ECO. NEX tracks opportunities in clean energy in Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Americas and elsewhere; it is a product of WilderHill New Energy Finance, LLC.

The WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Index (NEX) is comprised of companies worldwide whose innovative technologies and services focus on generation and use of cleaner energy, conservation, efficiency and advancing renewable energy generally. Included are companies whose lower-carbon approaches are relevant to climate change, and whose technologies help reduce emissions relative to traditional fossil fuel use. The NEX is the first and leading Global Index for clean, alternative and renewable energy. Together with ECO that focuses on stocks listed in the U.S, we arguably now cover clean energy worldwide.

NEX: HOW TO 'BUY THE INDEX.'

An investor cannot directly buy an index.

There are commonly however, Index-tracking funds available to 'buy' an Index by closely matching the Index performance; lately new funds can now track Global Indexes.

An independent Fund, the PowerShares Global Clean Energy Portfolio, symbol PBD, seeks to mirror the performance of NEX. Investors wishing to trade the global clean energy sector as defined by the WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Index can contact their Broker or PowerShares directly for PBD.

An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) helpfully calculates intra-day within the U.S. Generally speaking ETFs will also carry characteristics of intra-day trading and transparency.

Like with the ECO Index, this still-emerging Worldwide clean energy sector defined by NEX has been and clearly remains, highly volatile.




WILDERHILL PROGRESSIVE ENERGY INDEX® (WHPRO)

The WilderHill Progressive Energy Index® (WHPRO) contains the companies that can serve as an energy bridge improving near-term use of fossil fuel resources by progressively reducing carbon and other pollution. This Index reflects transitional technologies that can become increasingly important as a response to global warming and climate change. WHPRO captures the opportunities that are found in decarbonizing our energy portrait in a response to greenhouse emissions, in improving use of coal, oil, and natural gas, and for making better use of all major energy sources dominant today.

WHPRO: How to 'buy the Index.'

An investor cannot directly buy an index.

There are commonly, however, index-tracking funds available to 'buy' an index by closely matching index performance.

An independent Fund, the PowerShares WilderHill Progressive Energy Portfolio, symbol PUW, also seeks to mirror the performance of the WilderHill Progressive Energy Index® (WHPRO). Investors wishing to trade this emerging sector that is capturing and tracking the new opportunities found in a societal response to climate risk, and for reducing CO2 and other pollution from dominant fossil fuels of today as defined by the WilderHill Progressive Energy Index® (WHPRO), can contact their Broker or PowerShares directly.

An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) calculates intra-day, like the Index (WHPRO). Generally speaking, ETFs carry the characteristics of intra-day trading and transparency.




WILDER NASDAQ OMX® GLOBAL ENERGY EFFICIENT TRANSPORT INDEX (HAUL)

From 2008 to 2012 we also operated the forward-looking Wilder NASDAQ OMX Global Energy Efficient Transport Index (HAUL) designed to define and track innovative, energy efficient transportation; specifically, businesses that could stand to benefit substantially from a societal transition towards cleaner and improved means of moving goods and people. The stocks and sector weightings within the HAUL Index® were based on their significance for greater efficiency, for reducing costs and time in transit, and for technological advancement. The Energy Efficient Transport Index® (HAUL) emphasized solutions that can make ecological and economic sense and it could include stocks from around the world. That Index was unlike any other at that time, and it is no longer being calculated live.






The WilderHill Clean Energy Index® (ECO), the WilderHill Progressive Energy Index® (WHPRO), and WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Index (NEX) are all calculated by the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE Euronext) and disseminated through the Network of the Consolidated Tape Association.
