AVAILABLE PRODUCTS FOR WILDERHILL PROGRESSIVE ENERGY INDEX® (WHPRO), WILDERHILL CLEAN ENERGY INDEX® (ECO), WILDERHILL® NEW ENERGY GLOBAL INNOVATION INDEX (NEX)


WILDERHILL PROGRESSIVE ENERGY INDEX® (WHPRO)


This WHPRO Index from WilderHill provides the means to track companies that are an energy bridge for improving near-term use of fossil fuel resources by progressively reducing carbon and other pollution. And this Index has significant non-correlation to ECO.


HOW TO 'BUY THE INDEX'


An investor cannot directly buy an index.


There are commonly, however, index-tracking funds available to 'buy' an index by closely matching index performance.


An independent Fund, the PowerShares WilderHill Progressive Energy Portfolio, symbol PUW, seeks to mirror the performance of WHPRO. Investors wishing to trade this sector based on reducing pollution from fossil fuels as defined by the WilderHill Progressive Energy Index® can contact their Broker or PowerShares directly.


An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) calculates intra-day, like the Index (WHPRO). Generally speaking, ETFs carry the characteristics of intra-day trading and transparency.



WILDERHILL CLEAN ENERGY INDEX® (ECO)


A priority of WilderHill Clean Energy Index (ECO) is to define and track the Clean Energy sector: specifically, businesses that stand to benefit substantially from a societal transition toward use of cleaner energy and conservation. Stocks and sector weightings within the Index are based on their significance for clean energy, technological influence and relevance to preventing pollution in the first place.

WILDERHILL NEW ENERGY GLOBAL INNOVATION INDEX (NEX)


In early 2006 and working with partners, we co-launched the WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Index (NEX) in order to track the companies working in clean energy worldwide with emphasis on those based outside of the United States. More than half the companies in NEX are generally listed on stock exchanges outside the U.S.; hence there is significant non-correlation with ECO. The NEX may thus help track diverse emerging activities in clean energy now occurring in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and elsewhere.


The WilderHill New Energy Global Innovation Index (NEX) is comprised of companies worldwide whose innovative technologies and services focus on generation and use of cleaner energy, conservation, efficiency and advancing renewable energy generally. Included are companies whose lower-carbon approaches are relevant to climate change, and whose technologies help reduce emissions relative to traditional fossil fuel use. The NEX is the first and leading Global Index for clean, alternative and renewable energy. Together with ECO that focuses on stocks listed in the U.S, we arguably cover clean energy worldwide.

WILDER NASDAQ GLOBAL ENERGY EFFICIENT TRANSPORT INDEX (HAUL)


From 2008 to 2012 we also operated the forward-looking Wilder NASDAQ Global Energy Efficient Transport Index (HAUL) designed to define and track innovative, energy efficient transportation; specifically, businesses that could stand to benefit substantially from a societal transition towards cleaner and improved means of moving goods and people. The stocks and sector weightings within the HAUL Index® were based on their significance for greater efficiency, for reducing costs and time in transit, and for technological advancement. The Energy Efficient Transport Index® (HAUL) emphasized solutions that can make ecological and economic sense and it could include stocks from around the world. That Index was unlike any other at that time, and it is no longer being calculated live.
