I think UK renewable energy shares make a great long-term investment as part of a diversified portfolio. Economies are focusing on sustainability as well as net zero carbon emissions to drive the message of climate change.As my fellow Fool Edward Sheldon points out, the UK renewable energy market is set to grow at approximately 9% per year from now until 2026. To me, this sounds appealing.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I think there are some great UK renewable energy investment trusts. Not only do these offer investors attractive dividend yields, but also exposure to a portfolio of clean energy assets. Here are three of my top picks.#1 – The Renewables Infrastructure GroupThe Renewables Infrastructure Group (LSE: TRIG) is a great way to get broad exposure to the sector. It has 77 investments across solar, both onshore and offshore wind, as well as battery storage. These are located across the UK and Europe.What I really like is that the trust offers investors a diversified portfolio of renewable energy assets. This way I’m spreading my risk as the concentration of each investment is reduced. The management team is also looking to expand the portfolio, which should reduce my risk even further. As an income addict, TRIG generates a dividend yield of over 5% that’s attractive to me.But the investment trust is trading at almost a 10% premium to its Net Asset Value (NAV). This means that it isn’t cheap and the UK renewable energy share comes at a cost that could maker buying it riskier.#2 – Greencoat UK WindGreencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW) has wind farms across the UK. I guess this is fairly obvious from the trust’s name.The portfolio comprises 38 operational wind farms and one that is under construction. Approximately 70% of its assets are based onshore with the remaining 30% being offshore. While this investment trust is only focused on wind, it’s still diversified across various sites.I reckon this is a good way of getting sole exposure to wind energy. As an income investor, the dividend yield is also attractive too. It currently stands at over 5%.But just like TRIG, Greencoat UK Wind comes at a price. This renewable energy share is currently trading at a 6% premium versus its NAV.#3 – Bluefield Solar Income FundIf I only wanted exposure to solar energy, then I’d buy the Bluefield Solar Income Fund (LSE: BSIF). This stock also generates an attractive dividend yield of over 6%.The portfolio consists of over 100 operational solar assets across the UK. These include typically large agriculturally situated solar farms, as well as a number of small industrial and commercial sites.What I think is interesting is that BSIF shareholders voted last year to expand the investment mandate. It’s no longer restricted to investing in UK-based assets.The trust can also invest a minority amount of its money into other renewable energy such as onshore wind, hydro and storage. I guess the portfolio will expand over time but for now, it’s heavily invested in solar energy.As with the previous two stocks, BSIF is expensive. It trades at a premium of 9% versus its NAV. And I think this gap could widen, especially now that the investment mandate has become broader. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

View Comments Hello, gorgeous! The London revival of Funny Girl, which will start previews on November 20 at the Menier Chocolate Factory, is already set to transfer to the West End, where it will begin performances on April 9, 2016 at the Savoy Theatre. Starring two-time Olivier winner Sheridan Smith, the musical, which catapulted Barbra Streisand to stardom on stage and screen, will be directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer and have a revised book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. Apparently our Broadway Mayor cut 40 pages from the script on his initial read-through!No word yet on whether the production has any intention of crossing the pond to play New York following the London run, but with Tony winners Mayer and Fierstein on board it looks like a distinct possibility. A Bartlett Sher-helmed revival of the musical—headlined by Lauren Ambrose—was set to play Los Angeles and Broadway in 2012 before being postponed indefinitely. And then there was Lea Michele…The tuner, which first played London in 1966, tracks the rise of Fanny Brice’s career as one of Broadway’s biggest stars by way of the Ziegfeld Follies, as well as her doomed romance with Nicky Arnstein. The score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill features such iconic show tunes as “People,” “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and “I’m the Greatest Star” and a book by Isobel Lennart.Along with Smith, the cast at the Menier Chocolate Factory will include Maurice Lane, Darius Campbell, Marilyn Cutts, Valda Aviks and Gay Soper. The production will officially open on December 2 and play through March 5, 2016.

Subscription based licenses continue to grow in popularity despite initial criticism.Executives at Adobe Systems have stated that subscriptions to the Creative Cloud have reached an all-time high at 1.8 million. With an increase of over 405,000, the first quarter of 2014 has also proven to be the fastest growing quarter for subscribers since the Creative Cloud was released in 2012. The company is also reporting more revenue than ever and expecting an equally successful amount of growth throughout 2014.As stated in 2013, Adobe plans to completely shutdown their perpetual software licenses and move to subscription-only licenses.This news comes at a time when perpetual license software vs. subscription based licensing is battling for the market. In a recent conference call with investors Adobe CFO Mark Garrett stated “We will soon end general availability of CS6 perpetual licensing in the channel. This decision is consistent with our comments last December, when we stated we expected no material revenue from perpetual licensing of CS6 in the second half of fiscal 2014.”Adobe also stated that they plan on launching an exciting new offering to their creative cloud subscribers which should be released later this year. The offering is expected to be “so strong that CS6 will look longer in the tooth” says Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen.Although subscription based downloads seem to make it cheaper and easier for creatives to get the latest software, there has been serious pushback from some in the industry (FCPX and Avid lovers, for instance). But one thing is for sure, If Adobe keeps growing as fast as they are now, Apple and Avid will have to make a significant counteroffer.What do you think about Adobe getting rid of perpetual licenses?Do you like the Creative Cloud?
