The Atomics Updated

The Atomics Index of renewable energy companies has been updated.  The index is composed of companies tapping into the energy within the atom.   The smallest of the three groups in the index is a clutch of four developers of hydrogen through electrolysis.  The index also includes a larger nuclear power technology developers and nuclear power generators.  The most significant group is that of solar power products and generation using photovoltaic technologies.

There has been some consolidation in the Nuclear Group.  The name Chicago Bridge and Iron (CBI:  NYSE) is new to list after buying the Shaw Group with its nuclear power plant construction division.  Likewise in the Solar Group, Panasonic (PCRFY:  OTC/BB) acquired Sanyo Solar, bulking up Panasonic’s presence in the solar sector.  Memc Electronics Materials changed its name to SunEdison and changed its stock symbol to SUNE listed on the Nasdaq to reflect that company’s shift in focus to the solar power industry.  New additions to the list include Flibe Energy, a developer of advanced nuclear power technologies, and Dyesol, a developer of third-generation solar power technology using dyes.

Besides looking at the strategic moves by these five companies in the next series of posts to The Small Cap Strategist, we will look at the members of NuStart Energy Development, a limited liability company formed by companies in the utility industry.
