Investing in Energy Efficiency

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / April 8, 2019 / As of 2016, global investment in energy efficiency was at $231 billion, as stated by International Energy Agency. That number could grow as Canada just pledged investment to Energy Efficiency and Climate Change Adaptation. Moreover, a new report out in March revealed that investing $500 billion in making U.S. residential and commercial buildings more energy efficient would benefit the planet, save money, and create millions of jobs.

Retail investors looking for direct investments into energy efficiency companies should research, CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK). CLSK was ranked as a top 10 microgrid by Navigant Research last year.

Due to this fact, the company has stated that marketing to cannabis companies is one of their top initiatives for 2019. Recently, the company closed on $5 million round of funding, engaged a firm to navigate their uplisting, and as far as currently operation go, announced the near completion of a $900k contract to install a CLSK microgrid at a U.S. Marine Corps Base and have been progressing on a $18.3 million deal with NYSE company MAC.
