The price of the troy ounce of gold is at its highest level in seven years. Currently, the precious metal costs around USD 1,650.00. The value of the troy ounce has thus increased by more than 30% in the past 12 months from under USD 1,270.00. Because the precious metal is considered a safe haven in uncertain times, it is clear how much investor uncertainty must have increased in recent months. As a result, margins and profits are rising for gold producers. The more that is mined, the more reserves must be discovered or acquired in order to continue producing gold in the future.Read

Energy sources and storage facilities are topics of the present and future. The more modern a society is, the higher the priority of cleanliness and moral innocuousness. Mobility in rich countries is undergoing change. In conurbations, the aim is increasingly being pursued to electrify motorised transport. Electricity flows into the grid from predominantly nuclear power plants as well as power plants using fossil fuels and can be used to produce hydrogen as an energy storage medium or to charge batteries. The share of electricity from renewable energies has increased worldwide from 18.6% to 25.1% in the years from 2008 to 2018.Read

The entrepreneur Elon Musk has had numerous existential near-death experiences with his battery car manufacturer Tesla since its foundation. Debts, postponements and quality issues were among the reasons why the US company was often closer to the end than to a breakthrough in the past.
