Tim thinks that sun-energy could be an alternative to oil energy. Wind power is only an alternative where there is no electricity.Tim Flannery said in 16th annual Investment Conference Ira Sahn, “ Wind tends to blow in places where, and at times when people do not use power.” He has been taking short position in wind energy companies during the past 24 months like other hedge fund managers. Increasing oil prices motive the hedge fund managers to shorting renewable energy stocks and wind companies in particular. So Tim also take positions for alternative energy. Tim give emphasis alternative energy companies in solar energy. Flannery says investors have excessively bid up stocks of companies that produce relatively clean energy, like nuclear power giants Exelon ( EXC – news – people ) and geothermal and natural gas power producer Calpine ( CPN – news – people). Flannery takes position in alternative energy firms but he also manage his portfolio on traditional energy sources.

It is seen that the traditional energy sector weightened in portfolio.Flannery’s fund holds weigtened traditional oil and gas companies shares.
