|Fidelity||Select Environment & Alternative Energy||FSLEX||Firsthand||Alternative Energy||ALTEX|
|Guinness Atkinson||Alternative Energy||GAAEX|
|Leuthold||Global Clean Technology||LGCTX|

This helpful article provides insight into how several of these funds approach the world of clean energy investment. As you'd expect, they are not all set-up in exactly the same way. You'll find that some of the funds in the article are listed over on the fossil free funds page.
One particularly unusual member of the list is the Calvert Green Bond Fund (CGAFX). This fund provides investors with a way to diversify their clean energy investments beyond stocks and into bonds. The creation of the Calvert fund is a reflection of the quickly expanding universe of clean energy investing - which now includes the possibility of "green yield" investments.
Given how quickly the interest in fossil fuel free funds is growing, the list above may miss the latest possibilities.
