Biofuels Digest quotes Raymond James energy analyst Pavel Molchanov commenting on the cleantech investing landscape. Molchanov believes that 2015 could turn out to be a record year for cleantech investing, with aggregate capital investment looking positive.
Molchanov writes:
Despite the headwinds of low energy prices, clean tech capital markets activity will likely set a record in 2015. In our clean tech update from January, we pointed out that the U.S.-listed clean tech universe’s oil price exposure can be broadly segmented into three “buckets.”

[…] The message here is not that investors are falling all over each other to write big checks to every clean tech company that asks. That is emphatically not the case. But in the aggregate, this is shaping to be a good year to raise capital – again, notwithstanding the sentiment-related headwinds of low oil prices. While this statement does not hold true 100% of the time, the public markets for the most part recognize the fact that clean tech companies are not in the oil business, and even when they are competing in some sense with oil, their economics are almost never 1:1 correlated with oil prices.
