From solar, to grid upgrades, to microgrids, to methane digesters and more, see below for the full list of every renewable and clean energy stock in Carbon Collective's Climate Index.

We cannot solve climate change without 100% clean electricity.

A key part of solving climate change is to “electrify everything” and transition our civilization from burning fossil fuels to run our cars, homes, buildings and businesses to using only electricity. In order for that to be a better solution though, that electricity must be generated without carbon emissions. Some estimates say this transition needs to finish by 2050, others say 2035. Luckily, the economics favor a rapid expansion to clean up electricity production. Solar is already the cheapest form of electricity. Wind isn’t far behind. The economics of coal and natural gas are already struggling in competition. It’s just now a matter of speed and scale.

Do note that we include nuclear as an important part of a clean energy system. 

This is no small task.

Today, clean & renewable energy represents a fraction of our electrical production. To meet this critical climate goal, not only do we need to replace all coal, oil, and natural gas power plants with zero-carbon alternatives (see below for the full list), but we need to strengthen the electrical grid to handle a far heavier, more variable electrical load.

The clock is ticking.

The clean energy stocks below represent some of the largest companies in the space. And it’s more than just solar and wind, but a range of zero-emission power systems that can integrate together to provide electricity 24/7, 365 days a year. While we need many new upstarts to come and disrupt with new, better technologies (and don’t worry, we’ll add them as they come along), we need the existing players to scale as rapidly as possible. The clock is ticking and the race to 100% clean electricity is as much about technology advances–batteries and storage–as it is about massively scaling manufacturing–solar manufacturing capacity needs to ~5x from 2019 - 2020.

This list represents all of the clean energy companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange (except for penny stocks whose share prices were less than $0.50 in our last update). Those who are innovating, building a better solar panel, and those who are just focused on scaling their core business as quickly as possible.

If you are a Carbon Collective member, you own all of these companies through the Climate Index.
