Sun is the energy
source of the future
According to several experts, solar energy is one of the winners in the race to supply CO2 neutral green energy. Solar energy is already the cheapest and cleanest form of energy in more than half of the world’s countries.
More and more studies are also showing that sustainable investment is doing better on returns and risk, than more traditional investments.
A green and sustainable market in growth
The global community has adopted common long-term goals for a sustainable energy supply, and the transition to fossil-free CO2-neutral and sustainable energy is picking up speed in these years.
We believe that solar energy will play an increasingly important role in this transition, and if you read reports from e.g. McKinsey & Company, solar energy is forecast over the next 30 years to play a crucial role in this transformation.
Nordic Solar, together with the shareholders, has a vision to contribute to this dramatic development and through the expansion of solar energy we wish to contribute to a healthier climate, environmental improvements and hopefully a better future for all.
Sustainable investments perform better
New research states that sustainable investments perform better on returns and risk than unsustainable investments.
According to a study, made by BankInvest, sustainable portfolios during the period 2007 to 2020 delivered an average return of 5.7%, while Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) All Country World Index (ACWI) had an average return of 4%. That is, the green portfolio has yielded an annual excess return of 1.7%.
In addition, the sustainable portfolio fluctuates one percentage point less than the global stock index, so while MSCI ACWI has an annual volatility of 17.8%., the sustainable portfolio fluctuates by only 16.8%.
What is an investment in solar energy?
When you invest in solar energy, you as a shareholder contribute in the long run to a better climate, as well as ensuring yourself a long-term and stable investment. Solar energy is the climate investment of the future and experts point out that global solar energy production is expected to increase by a factor of 60 by 2050.
Pressure from the public and the EU
The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, states in her state of the union speech of 2020 that she and the Commission are aiming to increase the climate goal for 2030 from 40% today to at least 55% CO2 reduction.
In addition, she wants 37% of the funds from the EU’s new recovery fund to go to climate investments, corresponding to investments of EUR 265 billion.
At the same time as the global community has adopted a common long-term goal for sustainable energy, several sources report that the transition to renewable energy, combined with better energy efficiency, can generate up to 90% of the reduction of CO2 emissions. This is necessary to reach the global climate targets by 2050.
