Green-Energy Projects Face Financing Woes Amid High Interest Rates

After experiencing unprecedented growth that saw the number of renewable energy projects increase several times over, green-energy projects could potentially face a capital crunch due to high interest rates. Solar and wind project installations may be at an all-time high, but several reputable publications predict that several factors, including high interest rates, could make it difficult for renewable energy projects to access funding and impact green-energy commodity prices in the future.

Several years of cost reductions and legislative support, as well as an explosion of investor interest, directed massive investment into green energy and resulted in significant wind- and solar-power development across the globe. Projections from the International Energy Agency show that the world’s solar-energy output will continue to rise at an average of 25% annually at least until the end of the decade.

Despite these lofty predictions, the businesses behind solar- and wind-energy projects may struggle to access much-needed capital in the future. News sources report that a new set of complications such as higher financing costs as well as higher interest rates outside the Chinese market are set to strain project developers and manufacturers.

This issue could be particularly problematic because green-energy projects typically have low operational costs but require large upfront costs. These projects are prone to price disruptions and are more likely to have higher financing costs due to rising interest rates in linchpin nations such as the United States. The U.S. Federal Reserve has raised benchmark interest rates for several consecutive months, and experts predict that the group won’t lower these rates until the second half of the year.

Some experts are also afraid of an uncontrolled transition to green energy leading to blunders as renewable-energy providers fight to gain funds for infrastructure and sustainable energy from the government through legislation such as the Inflation Reduction Act or the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

To prevent such blunders, the local governments in the country should plan their green-energy transitions meticulously by creating compelling business cases, choosing the best sites and ensuring the maintenance of critical infrastructure such as transmission lines. Fortunately, long-term projections for renewable-based commodities are largely bullish.

The Renewables Monthly Metals Index’s (MMI) decline recently slowed down and started to flatten out while the MMI saw an overall drop of 0.36%, an indication of month-on-month sideways price action. On the other hand, the Grain Oriented Electrical Steel MMI saw greater heavy downward month-on-month price action and fell by 13.26%.

Grain-oriented electric steel (GOES) prices have been subject to increased volatility over the past few years due to a variety of factors that have affected supply dynamics on a global scale. As these prices are typically available in intermittent intervals, GOES are more likely to experience exacerbated price volatility, logistical challenges, plant closures and manufacturing capacity limits that lead to price spikes and supply shortages.

The decentralized green-energy generation solutions being commercialized by companies such as Correlate Energy Corp. (OTCQB: CIPI) could come in handy in lowering the cost outlays of setting up new projects geared at availing clean energy.
