SunEdison is on a mission to become one of the biggest energy companies in the world, built entirely on renewables.
It still has a ways to go. The developer has a $9 billion market capitalization. The two biggest oil companies, PetroChina and ExxonMobil, are worth $376 billion and $342 billion, respectively. And Duke Energy, America’s largest utility, has a market cap of $50 billion.
"We are building the next generation of the biggest energy companies on earth," said Julie Blunden, SunEdison's chief strategy officer, this week after announcing plans to buy Vivint Solar for $2.2 billion.
In this week’s show, we will discuss SunEdison’s business strategy and ask if the company is on a sustainable growth path.
