HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2018 / With the market making a major bounce back in recent sessions, here are a few that may help you capitalize on this uptrend.
One sector to pay attention to is renewable and clean energy. A fast growing part of that industry we like is companies with microgrid solutions.
GTM Research forecasts $12.5 billion in microgrid investment within the United States over the next six years.
"U.S. Microgrids 2017: Market Drivers, Analysis and Forecast" identifies 3.2 GW of existing microgrid capacity growing to 6.5 GW by 2022.
GTM Research forecasts that generation procurement will account for 40 percent of the total microgrid investment during the period. Fuel-based generators represent nearly all generation to date, but renewables are expected to grow by more than tenfold (to 730 megawatts) to account for 26 percent of total microgrid capacity by 2020.
One company with a renewable microgrid solution that was recently ranked in the top ten by industry thought leader Navigant Research, CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK) (Market Cap: $63.576M Share Price: $1.74), could be an ideal way to capitalize on this growing market.
CLSK has a unique microgrid solution. Microgrids are power sources that access national grids, however, are able to function independently if the national grid were to go down. Hence, their importance to say, a cannabis company with crops depending on lights to stay on, or their entire crop could be compromised. The reason investors have taken to CLSK is because their unique microgrid solution consolidates several energy sources, including renewables like wind and solar to not only make the system resilient but cost effective as well.
Recent exposure through publications such as Navigant has helped the company pick up several clients since, including a newly signed $18 million-dollar deal. There could be several more deals like this on the way.
Renewable play, SunPower Corporation (SPWR) (Market Cap: $984.773M Share Price: $6.98), just announced a joint venture with Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc., SunStrong Capital Holdings, LLC (SunStrong), successfully closed its $400 million Solar Asset Backed Notes, Series 2018-1.

The anticipated repayment date is in November 2028 with a rated final maturity date in November 2048.
Another renewable play, First Solar, Inc. (FSLR) (Market Cap: $4.863B Share Price: $46.40) will hold a conference call to discuss its 2019 financial guidance and outlook on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (EMHTF) (Market Cap: $296.697M Share Price: $2.15). just announced their 3rd quarter numbers. Their CEO commented "During the third quarter, we've fulfilled our initial supply scheduling, product, and volume commitments to our provincial cannabis distribution customers to participate in the adult-use cannabis market - demonstrating our ability to provide consistent and increasing contracted shipments of Emerald product."
CBD beverage play New Age Beverages Corporation (NBEV) (Market Cap: $367.821M Share Price: $5.05) said Monday it was acquiring Morinda Holdings, a cannabis-infused drink seller, for $85 million. Although New Age makes only soft drinks, many of its products are aimed at creating a relaxing or therapeutic experience, and it wants to capture the growing consumer hunger for cannabis infused drinks.
