Many people I know are environmentally conscious and actively work to lessen the impact of the waste and carbon that they produce on the planet. In that spirit, I thought it would be a great idea to provide some information on alternative energy companies who profit from renewable energy and by transforming industrial wastes into clean fuel… Just as a reminder, my goal is not to recommend anyone to buy anything, but rather, to serve as a limited source of information about who’s who among green energy corporations. In this case, I decided to specifically identify some small cap renewable energy stocks that would be decidedly least in the news, especially in comparison to Exxon, Mobil, BP, Shell, and other traditionally sourced fuel companies. One thing is certain—clean energy is here to stay.
The first on my list is VivoPower International PLC (Ticker: VVPR). “Vivo” was only founded in 2016 in the US, headquartered in London, and is practically a new company. It is a BTO model company, which means it has mastered how to build, transfer, and operate solar power assets at a low cost. They not only invest in solar; they also produce, store, and transfer energy to the grid and customers around the world. MarketWatch
The second company I’m profiling is Westport Fuel Systems (WPRT). It’s a Canadian based company which supplies alternative-energy technology that enables diesel trucks to burn natural gas. Westport recently entered a joint venture with Cummins increased sales by 8% the first half of last 2017. Overall revenue growth in 2017 was 67%! The technology maker recently overcame some liquidity challenges by raising $29 million in cash from issuing 19 million shares of new stock. Stock price has continued to climb since then. TheFool
Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (REGI) is an energy holding company which produces biomass-based from vegetable and animal waste. REG generates its revenues by providing vital disposal services to food producers and from building new waste processing facilities and managing 3rd party biofuel plants. The company has developed a proprietary fermentation process and also specializes in renewable chemicals. REGI
Of course, this is a small list of companies. But, I hope I have piqued your interest in alternative energy stocks and technologies in a rapidly growing industry.
