Some of the top firms working in the sector include Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), and First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR), among others discussed in detail below. According to a report by S&P Global, 2022 is set to witness record levels of wind and solar capacity expansion. 

Per the research firm, 44 GW of solar and 27 GW of wind power are set to be installed alongside more than 8 GW of battery storage in just the United States this year. In addition, early plant retirement costs due to the energy transition are presenting challenges for utilities and state regulators with 29 GW of coal retirements planned for 2020 through 2025. The firm also underlines that investor-owned companies are now targeting municipal system acquisition targets in the water and wastewater sector.

“For both the fourth quarter and the full year, the Fund’s largest detractors were not concentrated in any singular industry or area. The dispersion of these detractors across geographies shows how investing in emerging markets can be idiosyncratic. TPI Composites, Inc. (NASDAQ:TPIC) 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 challenging 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 long-term position as a leading supplier to the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers.”
