According to Forbes, renewable energy will continue to add capacity by more than 200GW globally in 2021, and the price of renewable energy is expected to continue to fall. Indeed, this is making the earth a better place. But did you know that you can invest in renewable energy stocks? It’s not just about environmental conservation, as investing in renewable energy can help you diversify your portfolio.
Some think investing in renewable energy is an ethical act, like planting a tree or being part of a volunteering community. However, investing in renewable energy could actually balance out your investments whenever oil or other traditional energy stocks become unpredictable.
The cleantech industry is also rapidly evolving every year, and the price of renewable energy is continuing to fall. Since many countries, companies, and regions have begun embracing cleantech and sustainable energy generation, renewable energy stocks are becoming cheap and affordable to investors.
Invest in ESG funds
In recent years, more and more people invest in ESG funds. ESG funds (environmental, social, and governance funds) are funds in which environmental, social, and governance elements are combined into the portfolios. This means the equities and bonds need to comply with the given ESG criteria.
For example, a fund that does well in the environment criterion would mostly avoid investing in companies with a large carbon footprint. Thus, you can try mutual funds as you attain exposure to multiple companies simultaneously, instead of researching for individual cleantech companies.
