Editor’s Edition: Is clean energy headed for another bubble?

Is clean energy investment headed for another bubble? With corporate giants and big governments making bold proclamations about spending to achieve net zero emissions, the sector is getting more attention than ever from investors.

ArcTern Ventures managing partner Tom Rand and Yahoo Finance Canada's Jeff Lagerquist discuss soaring stock prices, the view from the venture capital perspective, and how investors should weigh the risks and opportunities.

The federal government delivered its fiscal update last week, promising money for Canadians to upgrade their homes with solar panels and more efficient heating. Tom gives his expectations for Ottawa’s energy policy in 2021 as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attempts to balance support for oil and gas with his government’s ambitions for a green recovery.

Have you heard of the Euronext Growth market? The junior Norgwgian exchange is a hotbed of new clean energy listings. Tom and Jeff discuss the battle for clean energy financing between SPACs and public listings in Norway.

Finally, to cap off 2020, we briefly get to know renewable energy giants Enel and Ibredrola, and talk about Ottawa’s proposed clean fuel standard.
