eTradeWire News/10710920
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - eTradeWire -- The Anton R. Williams Holding Company founder is using his background in the oil and gas industry to bring new investments into renewable energy. Anton R. Williams of Grand Rapids MI and Kalamazoo MI, will use a subsidiary of his company to focus attention on the development of critical minerals mining that is needed for wind, solar and electric vehicle operations as well as the production of alternative energy from hydrogen. One idea being circulated to spur new investments in the renewable space is having the creation of alternative energy contracts that can be traded on financial exchanges around the world. The idea as it pertains to trading is for investors to put more funding into renewable energy through derivatives. This would be independent of whether the investors are hedgers or speculators in the financial markets.

Anton R. Williams Renewable Energy CO a Tampa FL subsidiary of the Anton R. Williams Holding Co, is the primary entity responsible for oversight of renewable energy operations. Anton, the holding company founder is quoted as stating that "the 21st century is undoubtedly the era of when the primary sources of energy will transition from fossil fuels to renewable forms. Legislation at the federal level for many countries as well as policy from NGOs on climate targets have only served to advance this transition. Lobbying groups have formed and schools have added renewable energy courses and degrees to advance the cause of cleaner, safer energy. Financial investments in the form of derivative contracts is one of the remaining areas which is lagging behind on the renewable transition." Anton also works to bring civic attention to the renewable space through the Anton R. Williams Foundation of Grand Rapids MI, a self funded entity.
