Is it time to go renewable in the stock market?

  1. 1. Is it time to go renewable in the stock market?
  2. It is no secret: Renewable energy is the future. Most governments have realised the importance of clean energy for the future. The widespread recognition is the reason why it may be worth investing in renewable energy stocks. Here are some reasons why you should give it a thought.
  3. #1 1) High potential Right now, India is among the top ten countries investing in renewable energy, according to a 2016 UN Environmental Report. Demand for coal, the traditional source of energy in India, has slumped in recent years. Renewable energy costs are sliding steadily, a factor that helps it challenge coal’s dominance.
  4. #2 2) Burgeoning renewable energy sector In the past two years, there has been a 157% increase in solar power capacity. The world’s largest solar power plant was commissioned in Tamil Nadu in 2016. At 3,300 Mega Watts (MW), India produced the highest-ever wind power capacity addition for 2015-16.
  5. #3 3) High targets The Indian government has set an ambitious target for renewable energy production. At 175 Giga Watts (GW) by 2022, this would the largest expansion in the world. This provides plenty of opportunities for investors to strike big in this sector.
  6. #4 4) Huge investments required India needs over $200 billion investment to build renewable infrastructure in next 10 years. India offers 100% FDI for the generation and distribution of renewable energy. This is a huge incentive for global investors. It is estimated that global capital inflows would play a major role to achieve this goal.
  7. #5 5) Challenges At the moment, Indian renewable energy companies are poorly rated by global agencies. Low plant utilisation, limited operating history and weak financial profiles are a few factors for the poor ratings. However, the ratings can improve with higher financial inputs and greater production of renewable energy.
  8. Conclusion Overall, there is a huge potential for increase in renewable energy in India. Government incentives and increased participation of global investors can bolster this sector in the next decade.
