The Buz on CleanTech Stocks 12.18.16
Buz Investors Buz on CleanTech Stocks While there is no single accepted definition, the phrase spans technologies that cut emissions, improve the environment, and reduce the consumption of natural resources.
The development of clean technology is touted as one of the most effective ways to tackle climate change and other environmental issues.
And it is already a multibillion-dollar business. According to figures from consultancy firm Frost & Sullivan presented at the Global Cleantech Summit in Helsinki this week, the market for clean technology was worth $601bn in 2014. By 2020, the firm predicts this will expand to $1.3tn.
With the world likely to sign an emissions-cutting deal in Paris in December this year, and large economies such as India and China eager for ways to clean up their air pollution, rivers and land, it is easy to paint the future of the clean technology in a rosy light.

- Buz Investors 24 hour lithium production Galaxy’s lithium carbonate plant in Jiangsu was the first lithium carbonate plant I ever visited starting out on my own. This was back in 2010 and the clean tech world looked quite different; For starters the lithium story was fairly new, there were more than 45 lithium junior hopefuls, “Tesla” was not a household name and the term “Gigafactory” was a vague, far off concept-
- in fact, I’m not sure whether the phrase had even been coined. The Galaxy Jiangsu plant, which you can see in the photo, was mostly dust with the beginnings of a construction site and was at least eight months away from looking even remotely like a processing plant. (And still I drove excitedly for almost 3.5 hours on a slow Chinese bus to see it!)
- Just three years later in 2013, Galaxy had fallen into the usual junior trap of being over-leveraged and unfocused. Consequently, the business lost market and shareholder support. Like so many junior mining companies, it was thought that Galaxy would disappear. By December 2013, Galaxy’s share price had tumbled to around $0.038 from around $0.42 a year earlier.

- Buz Investors What’s Elon Musk Doing and SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY) are looking to expand in Central Florida following the presidential election-day defeat of a state amendment that critics feared would have stifled solar energy expansion in the state.
- The amendment would have limited the ability to allow solar companies to gain a foothold in the Sunshine State, detractors argued. Backers of the amendment however,
- said that the electric utilities-backed initiative would target “unfair subsidies” for the solar power industry. (Source: “Elon Musk’s Solar City expanding in Clermont,”Orlando Sentinel, December 1, 2016.)
