In this article, we will discuss 10 best wind power and solar stocks to buy. You can skip our detailed analysis of the wind and solar segments in the energy sector and go directly to 5 Best Wind Power and Solar Stocks To Buy.

Rallying oil prices, global warming, and the global transition toward electrification to achieve carbon neutrality are only a few factors to name that are causing the demand for alternative fuels to skyrocket. Consequently, investors are allocating sizeable portions of their investment portfolios to wind and solar stocks.

Renewable Energy Market Analysis: Size, Key Trends, Drivers, and Major Players

According to a market report by Allied Market Research, a leading market intelligence agency, the global renewable energy market was valued at $881.7 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow to $1.97 trillion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecasted period. Precedence Research, another prominent market intelligence firm, reported that the global renewable energy market grew to $952.16 billion in 2021, and is on an upward trajectory to hit $1.99 trillion by 2030 at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2022 to 2030. Both reports identified that currently, renewable energy serves a mere 7% of the world's energy demands, and as investments in solar, wind, and hydroelectric power infrastructure rise, the demand for renewable energy is expected to grow at an exponential rate in the foreseeable future.

By region, the Asia-Pacific dominated the renewable energy market share, having a share of approximately 35% in 2020 and 2021. It is forecasted that the North American market for renewable energy will grow significantly by 2030, in the wake of government regulations regarding clean fuel standards, biofuel production, tax incentives, and US green energy targets. Moreover, it was found that the costs for solar installations plummeted by 85% in the past decade, making it one of the most cost-effective energy sources. The innovations in solar energy storage and expansion of community solar projects in American markets are expected to further drive this growth.

“For both the fourth quarter and the full year, the Fund’s largest detractors were not concentrated to any singular industry or area. The dispersion of these detractors across geographies shows how investing in emerging markets can be idiosyncratic. TPI Composites was the Fund’s largest detractor in the fourth quarter and for the full year. A maker of wind turbine blades, TPI was particularly hard-hit by commodity inflation and challenged supply chains, leading the company to recapitalize in the fourth quarter. While the company continues to face near-term headwinds, this recapitalization should support the company’s longterm position as a leading supplier to the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers.”
