The green investor: why institutional investing holds the key to a renewable energy future

11 Feb 2019 WORLDWIDE Investment - Ethical and SRI
The Octopus Group has published its first Renewable Energy Investment report, titled "The green investor: why institutional investing holds the key to a renewable future". In the report, the Octopus Group analyses what drives institutional investors including pension funds to make investments in renewable energy, and identifies the "roadblocks" that prevent them from making further investments in the sector. According to the research, institutional investors are looking to increase their investment allocations in renewable energy markets. Nearly half of the 67% surveyed that are already invested in the sector are looking to increase the size of their investments by up to 10% over the next five years, with pension funds planning to increase their allocations from 4.8% to 7.8%.
