In a unique version of SEB’s The Inexperienced Bond document, we factor outlooks for renewable power funding and for the sustainable debt marketplace subsequent 12 months. We forecast that 2022 may well be the 12 months when the sector after all breaks with a decade of stagnation in renewable power funding and be expecting a soar of about 25 p.c in world investments to as regards to USD 400 billion.

Within the transition outlook, we take a look at how the power disaster these days hitting Europe and Asia, particularly, will have an effect on renewable power investments going ahead. With a surge in the price of power and electrical energy, which has made a wide variety of power manufacturing extraordinarily winning, we think that the disaster will pave the best way for a damage with the disappointing flatlining pattern of the previous decade.

“After a decade through which blank power funding was once capped at USD 300 billion, we think a soar to as regards to USD 400 billion in 2022 as governments begin to spend extra on infrastructure,” says Thomas Thygesen, Head of Analysis, Local weather & Sustainable Finance, at SEB. “We see upside to that estimate as corporations confronted with sky-high power expenses might see the likelihood to offset that value through attractive in now extraordinarily winning investments in decentralized renewable power provides.”

That compares with an estimated overall transaction quantity of USD 1.55 trillion in 2021.

”Whilst we don’t be expecting any other doubling of the marketplace like we noticed in 2021, we’re nonetheless very assured that the exponential enlargement of sustainable finance is about to proceed in 2022,” says Gregor Vulturius, Marketing consultant at Local weather & Sustainable Finance at SEB. ”Particularly, we forecast that sustainable-themed bonds will keep growing strongly subsequent 12 months, with new issuance of inexperienced, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked bonds expanding through between 35 and 53 p.c.”

The entire enlargement in sustainable financing in 2022 will principally be pushed through the issuance of inexperienced bonds, which is observed expanding 50 p.c year-on-year to greater than USD 900 billion in our Baseline Situation and through 70 p.c to simply over USD 1 trillion within the Inexperienced Enlargement Situation.
