5 Green Energy Stocks That Could Catch a 2021 Tailwind
Green energy stocks haven't always lived up to the hype. Despite years of continued adoption of solar, wind, hydroelectric and other power-generation sources, investing in the underlying companies has been a turbulent ride.

Fortunately, renewable energy stocks suddenly have friends in high places.

President-elect Joe Biden plans to invest $2 trillion in clean-energy initiatives over the next four years, with a loftier goal of making America a net-zero-emissions country by 2050.

It projects that total installed wind and solar PV capacity is on track to overtake natural gas in 2023 and coal in 2024.

"I see solar becoming the new king of the world's electricity markets," IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said in a statement.

U.S. stocks finished mostly higher but lost momentum within Thursday's final hour of trade after the Wall Street Journal reported that Pfizer Inc. expects to ship half of the COVID vaccines it originally planned for this year because of supply-chain problems, but still expects to roll out more than a billion doses in 2021.

Markets had surged higher on Thursday U.S. stock indexes took a leg higher on the session after the U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said reaching a compromise on another coronavirus fiscal package was possible, as long as Democrats moved toward Republican positions, offering some hope of progress toward a fiscal pact for bullish investors.
