Hallo zusammen,

nachdem meine in jeder Hinsicht geliebten Astropower mittlerweile ihr ATH durchbrochen haben bin ich fuer die Zukunft des Unternehmens weiterhin mehr als zuversichtlich. Folgender Artikel bestaerkt meine Annahme, dass es nach einem Wahlsieg Gores noch einen weiteren kraeftigen Schub geben duerfte. Gore war zwar als Vizepraesident bezueglich seinen Umweltengagements doch eher eine Rohrkrepierer (zumindest verglichen damit, was man aufgrund seines vorherigen Wirkens haette vermuten koennen), an der Spitze jedoch laesst sich weit besser gestalten, als im Schatten eines Billi-Boys. Ein 100.000 Daecher-Programm wie bei uns waere da im Verhaeltnis zur Groesse der USA und den dortigen geologischen bzw. klimatischen Gegebenheiten lediglich Kinderkram. Das ginge in ganz anderen Dimensionen von statten. Und wenn dann noch die Wall-Street-Analysten und Fonds etc. mal auf Astropower aufmerksam wuerden ...
Aber leider, leider ist ja noch nichts entschieden. Vielleicht gewinnt ja auch Bush - und damit die Initiative des politischen und ökologischen Rueckwaertsgangs. Den Amis ist alles zuzutrauen.

Let the sun shine.

Bush or Gore? Certain stocks could benefit -- Oct 11 2000

OCT 11, 2000, M2 Communications - For years the United States has ignored the
predicted energy crunch. What with low gas prices and back-to-back mild winters
and the talk of the "green-house" effect, few of us have cared about using
alternative power sources. But that will change in January 2001. Shocked over
rising energy prices and concerned by predictions that our oil supplies are
growing dangerously tight, some lawmakers already are working on measures that
would offer tax breaks to encourage the building of new generating facilities.
If additional power doesn`t soon come on line, they say, Washington stands to
lose an important economic advantage. "The one thing we have is low-cost power,"
says Rep. Larry Crouse, a Spokane Republican and co-chairman of the House
Technology, Telecommunications and Energy Committee, "and that allows us to
compete effectively. We have to step up to the plate to get a new generation [of
power plants] sited, and keep power costs low."

Republicans seem to favor plants fueled by natural gas, while Democrats are
leaning toward supporting alternative generating sources, such as wind and sun.
Environmentalists, meanwhile, say conservation needs a new emphasis. Thus if the
Democrats win look for the following alternative power source players to
benefit. If the Republicans win then natural gas related issues including
drilling firm Global Marine (NYSE: GLM).

Alternative power companies to watch if Gore is elected:

AstroPower Inc. (NASDAQ: APWR) develops, manufactures, markets and sells a range
of solar electric power products for the global marketplace. The Company
currently sells five classes of products: solar cells, modules, panels, systems
and solar electricity. The Company`s products are used to generate electricity
for users not connected to the utility grid. These applications include
electrification of rural homes and villages, and power supply for equipment in
the communications and transportation industries.

AstroPower`s products are also used by customers already connected to the
utility grid as a clean, renewable source of alternative or supplemental
electricity. Additionally, the Company recently expanded a joint venture
agreement with GPU International to generate wholesale solar electric power.

FuelCell Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: FCEL) is a developer of electrochemical
technologies for electric power generation and has developed a proprietary
patented fuel cell known as the Direct FuelCell. A fuel cell is a device that
electrochemically converts the chemical energy of a fossil fuel into electricity
without the combustion of fuel. The fuel cell system feeds a fuel, such as
natural gas, into the fuel cell where the fuel and air undergo an
electrochemical reaction to produce electricity. The Company manufactures
carbonate fuel cells, generally on a contract basis.

H Power (NASDAQ: HPOW) is a leading fuel cell development company that designs
and markets proton-exchange membrane fuel cells designed to provide electricity
for a wide range of stationary, portable and mobile applications. For the FY
ended 5/31/00, revenues rose from $1M to $3.7M.

Net loss applic. to Com. rose from $7M to $17.2M. Results reflect new contracts
with Naval Surface Warfare Center & Nat`l Institute of Standards & Tech. and
higher operating expense.

Millinium Cell (NASDAQ: MCEL) is an emerging technology company engaged in the
development of a patented alternative energy source based on boron chemistry,
generating energy in the form of hydrogen or electricity. For the three months
ended 3/31/00, the Company reported no revenue. Net loss totaled $422 thousand,
up from $162 thousand. Higher loss reflects higher product development costs due
to the increased staffing required to further the technology.
