The Big and Small of the Clean Tech Sector
The Big and Small of the Clean Tech Sector

The clean tech sector comprises several key areas in terms of what's available for the investor in the public equity markets today. Companies that deal in solar and wind energy tend to have the largest market caps such as Power One Inc. (NASDAQ: PWER) and General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE).  Biofules tend to be slightly smaller such as Kior, Inc. (NASDAQ: KIOR) and than there is RVPlus, Inc. (OTCQB: RVPL) A micro cap with the most room to grow and they are beginning to prove it. 

 


The Liberian Institute for Global Studies (LINGS) is a $750 million project to build the first green campus in West Africa between ECCO2 Tech, ECCO2 Corp and certain West African governments. The objective of the project is to offer sustainable tools and resources to improve social development, women's rights, and further educate emerging growth countries on climate change and energy efficiency. In order to enhance the resources available to the project,  RVPlus (OTCQB: RVPL), a holding company of ECCO2 Tech, has announced today that it will acquire Intervisual Technology in a merger to be completed by April of this year. Intervisual will make available educational products and services to LINGS through face-to-face and virtual applications. Students in developing countries who lack financial resources for teachers and schools will garner sustainable financial support from the company on a cost-effective subscription basis. As for RVPL, due to debt financing from United Nations financial aid partners and extant grants, revenue in the billions of dollars could be generated from the company’s partnership with Intervisual and the LINGS project.

 


Intervisual Technology is a Florida-based accredited school that offers educational services both physically and online for grades 6 through 12. As well as federal, state and local contracts, the company has contracts with countries in Africa and China. Advisors include such high profile persons as former Florida governor Jeb Bush. Aside from the completed merger, RVPL and Intervisual plan to launch pilot LINGS projects this summer and fall in Guam, Central America and West Africa.



RVPL’s ECCO2 Tech (Environmental Control of Carbon Dioxide) specializes in universally clean technologies that reduce carbon emissions, are energy efficient and most importantly, sustainable. ECCO2 Corp, the not for profit branch of the family, was recently admitted to the UN Department of Economics and Social affairs as an affiliate partner of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The company is an observer organization for the United Nations. This status opens doors to garner over $100 billion in aid to fund ECCO2 projects. In addition, the company has gained attention from multiple major media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, Forbes, Bloomberg and CNN. ECCO2 has also appeared at clean-tech awareness conferences held by private organizations as well as government agencies. 

 


The clean tech sector comprises several key areas in terms of what's available for the investor in the public equity markets today. Companies that deal in solar energy tend to have the largest market caps such as Power One Inc. (NASDAQ: PWER). The company is the world’s second largest maker of solar inverters and has been nothing but profitable in recent years. It has no debt and about $200 million in free cash. PWER has a market cap of $506.61 million and shares are currently trading at $4.17.

 


Those companies that deal in biofuels tend to be smaller cap companies for the most part but KiOR Inc. (NASDAQ: KIOR) is larger with a market cap of $587.42 million. KIOR is a cellulosic biofuel maker. It uses woodchips and a catalytic process to turn those woodchips into biocrude, or renewable crude oil. Unlike petroleum based crude, it is wholly renewable. The crude can then be refined into almost any finished product such as diesel, jet fuel or gasoline. Shares in the company are currently trading at $5.53.

 


Some of the largest companies on the market are invested in wind as a clean alternative. General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) is a prime example. The energy portion of the conglomerate is involved in the production of wind turbines as well as solar panels and various other clean technologies. In fact, GE is one of the nation’s leading wind turbine suppliers and is committed in its development of clean technology. Currently GE has a market cap of $236.99 billion and shares are selling for $22.59. 

 


All of these companies are, in one way or another, direct competitors of RVPL and ECCO2 Tech. And they are much larger. But what sets RVPL apart from the bigger boys are the government contracts the company has garnered from emerging growth countries in order to help educate their citizens of all ages on how to use and sustain clean technology. They have consciously placed themselves in a niche that is not only commendable but one that is growing as global eco–consciousness and environmental awareness is spiking. Look to this amazing small-cap to sustain remarkable growth in the coming year.
