#74 Tom Konrad Ph.D., CFA, is an investment analyst and writer focused on clean energy stocks
Tom Konrad Ph.D., CFA, is an investment analyst and writer focused on clean energy stocks. He is best known for his cautious and income-oriented approach to investing, and his warnings leading up to the bursting of the 2015 Yieldco bubble. His writing has appeared in publications such as GreenTech Media, The Guardian, Renewable Energy World, Forbes.com, but his primary outlet has been AltEnergyStocks.com since 2007. Tom is a CFA charterholder and has a PhD in mathematics from Purdue University. He wrote his thesis on a branch of chaos theory. This study of chaos theory led to his conviction that knowing the limits of our ability to predict is much more important than predictions themselves, a lesson he applies to both climate science and the financial markets. He volunteers as the Chair of the New York Town of Marbletown’s Environmental Conservation Commission (ECC), and is a long distance runner. The ECC’s efforts have turned Marbletown into a locally recognized leader in the shift to renewable energy while producing a net benefit to the Town government’s and residents’ budgets. In 2019 he completed a 28.2 mile ultra-marathon up and down 4000 vertical feet of the hills of Tuscany to celebrate his 50th birthday.
