Trackinsight: Investors dump Clean Energy ETFs as outlook looks pricy

01/25/2022 | 08:43am EDT

Rising "green" costs and Fed's looming rate hikes have spooked Clean Energy ETFs investors.

Rising "green" costs and Fed's looming rate hikes have spooked Clean Energy ETFs investors ?who withdrew over $750 million dollars from the green theme since the beginning of the year. Investors fear that higher interest rates can increase costs for wind and solar projects as central banks weigh tighter monetary policy to curb inflation. On other hand, prices for solar panels, wind turbines, batteries and other supporting infrastructure have soared over the past year as supply shortages of key commodities such as copper, lithium, cobalt, and zinc triggered the hike.

Among the top bleeders in the ETF range are Invesco Solar ETF (TAN, -$224 million), iShares Global Clean Energy UCITS ETF (INRG, -$175 million), iShares Global Clean Energy ETF (ICLN,-$105 million), Invesco WilderHill Clean Energy ETF (PBW, -$100 million), and First Trust NASDAQ Clean Edge Green Energy Index Fund (QCLN, -$78 million). In terms of performance this year, all 42 ETFs have sunk to the red zone by average double-digit percentage points.
