New Energy Efficiency Index

Merrill Lynch introduced a new index this summer, aimed at identifying industry sectors that would benefit from improvements in energy efficiency. It has identified these as the automotive industry, capital goods, semiconductors, and building materials. Currently, the Energy Efficiency Index is comprised of 40 companies. "While there has been a clear shift of resources and investor attention into renewable energy, energy efficiency remains an area that is relatively underexplored," said Asari Efiong, Merrill Lynch SRI/Renewable Energy equity analyst. "We believe that energy efficiency represents a significant market opportunity for investors, as policy changes look set to force a structural shift in demand."
