5 Renewable Energy Stocks On The Run: VKIN, SOL, GEVO, OPTT, SUNW

Numerous renewable energy stocks have been rising lately as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused oil prices to surge from levels that were already high due to a supply and demand imbalance. Russia supplies oil and natural gas to many European countries — and also exports some oil to the U.S.

Viking Energy Group (OTCMKTS:VKIN) may be one of the best ways to play skyrocketing energy prices.   VKIN  has proven oil and gas assets valued at over $96 million located in North America in Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.  VKIN’s oil & gas holdings aren’t something the company speaks about regularly because it is focused on several ESG initiatives, which are covered below.   However, the fact is VKIN’s assets are increasing in value rapidly and the market has yet to factor that in, which is one reason to like the company.

Viking Energy (OTCMKTS:VKIN) is unique in that not only will its oil & gas assets rise in value; but its several diversified green energy subsidiaries will also benefit as rising oil prices push people toward green alternatives.  These include a Green biodiesel production facility and a carbon capture technology.  Other products in the company’s green portfolio include a medical waste treatment technology and a newly acquired Electric grid optimization technology that allows for retrofitting.
