US Renewable M&A Revs Up
Renewable power enters the mainstream
Renewable development and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity appears to be poised for continued growth as investor interest flourishes and renewables move further into the mainstream.
US renewable M&A activity is increasing
Renewable power is fast-becoming a mainstream energy source as opposed to an alternative one. Despite continuing headwinds in the form of lackluster US electricity demand growth and competition from domestic natural gas, renewable M&A activity revved up in 2014. US wind and solar M&A activity increased largely due to financing innovations such as YieldCos, rapidly declining costs, and pending tax credit deadlines, as well as increasing investor confidence in wind and solar technologies.
