Renewable energy companies provide a range of clean energy solutions including wind, solar, geothermal, landfill gas, biofuels, biomass, waste to energy and ocean energy. The transition to a carbon-neutral economy is a seismic shift on a global scale. Today’s growing renewable energy and clean technology industry is alive with possibilities. Technology developments and significant decreases in renewable power prices, the focus of recent postCovid stimulus packages in favour of climate initiatives, renewable energy and environmental initiatives, more countries setting targets of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, as well as government policies increasingly focused on the transition to or investment in cleaner technologies, have resulted in a huge investment in renewable energy, clean technology and carbon reduction.
To raise capital they can approach the world’s capital markets in various ways. Through an initial public offering (IPO), listing either in its home jurisdiction or cross-border, a renewable energy company can access major global finance hubs and capital from a deep pool of investors around the world. An IPO can help a company raise its profile with customers, suppliers and the media, as well as providing it with an opportunity to improve internal systems and controls, and increase the general operating efficiency of the business as it prepares to comply with the relevant regulatory scheme for public companies.
