There could be a change in federal renewable fuel regulations under a Trump administration, which would create winners and losers in the energy sector in 2017, according to S&P Capital IQ.

Many of the integrated oils could be potential losers if this change occurs, according to Stewart Glickman, an equity analyst with CFRA. He says that includes Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A - Get Report) , BP (BP - Get Report)  and Chevron (CVX - Get Report) , as well as pure-play alternative fuel companies Renewable Energy (REGI - Get Report)  and Pacific Ethanol (PEIX - Get Report) .

Glickman says prospective winners include oil and gas refiners CVR Energy (CVR - Get Report) , Alon USA Energy (ALJ) , HollyFrontier (HFC - Get Report) , Calumet Speciality Products Partners (CLMT - Get Report)  and Delek US Holdings (DK - Get Report) .
