10 Cheap Clean Energy Stocks To Buy According to Wall Street Analysts

In this article, we will look into the 10 cheap clean energy stocks to buy according to Wall Street analysts. If you want to look at other similar stocks, you can go to the 5 Cheap Clean Energy Stocks To Buy According to Wall Street Analysts.

The Comeback of Clean Energy Stocks

On January 30, Reuters reported that clean energy stocks might be due for a recharge in 2024. Over the past years, cost overruns, supply bottlenecks, and financing problems have impacted the clean energy sector. Regardless, cheaper valuations are gaining traction from investors. One of the world's largest renewable equity funds, the iShares Global Clean Energy ETF lost 75% of its value over the past year. However, global stocks went up by 16%. Moreover, declining interest rates and the long-term growth outlook of the industry present optimistic prospects. The head of European Equity Strategy at AXA Investments Partners said:

"Renewables have regained valuations that are definitely more attractive, even in the medium term. We see there's growth, and now that rates have peaked, it's a segment that can be interesting. Returns won't be huge but are visible from businesses that are well managed."

Additionally, most investors seem to believe that the high sensitivity to interest rates of clean energy stocks presents them as a strategic option for investors, to leverage the potential monetary policies from the Federal Reserve. Reuters cited a survey by Bank of America stating that fund managers having $589 billion in assets identified renewable and biotech stocks as the leading beneficiaries of the US rate cuts.

EDP Group CEO Expects Operations to be 100% Renewable by 2030

On January 18, the CEO of EDP Energias de Portugal SA (OTC:EDPFY), a major name in the renewable industry, Miguel Stilwell d'Andrade appeared in an interview on CNBC to discuss the company's commitment to clean energy and the challenges associated with the energy transition. d'Andrade highlighted the importance of infrastructure to deploy clean energy and also emphasized EDP Energias de Portugal SA's (OTC:EDPFY) progress on the clean energy transition. He said that the company is expected to be out of coal by 2025. He further talked about Portugal's resilience in the energy crises and price hikes. He added that the high penetration of renewable energy in the country decreases its dependency on gas or the price of fossil fuels. He said:

"We expect to be out of coal by 2025. That's a firm commitment we've already decommissioned some of our coal plants and are decommissioning the rest by 2025,  and we state it will be all green by 2030. So, in terms of the target, that's when we expect to be 100% renewable, and then by 2040 being net zero. In other words, not just scope one, but scope two and scope three all along the value chain.

(Europe) It's done a great job in terms of setting the vision but a lot of the legislation that they produce hasn't been transposed to the member state level and it's not being implemented on the ground. So I think we need to get rid of that. We need to do it much faster and that's essentially what we've been pushing for."

Miguel Stilwell d'Andrade further emphasized that clean energy sources such as solar and wind energy are gaining traction in Europe. He said:

"I'd argue that Renewables are now the most sustainable or the most competitive source of energy in terms of developing the wind farms themselves in terms of the costs, that's built into the actual price then of the of the wind and the solar and Europe has fantastic resources both in wind and in solar more obviously towards the South."
