Why Green Investments Continue to Pay Dividends | NatPower Invest £10bn in Renewables

Why Green Investments Continue to Pay Dividends

The renewable energy sector in the UK has received a major boost with NatPower, a UK startup, pledging to invest a staggering £10 billion into battery storage projects. This ambitious investment will create the largest portfolio of battery storage projects in Britain, further solidifying the nation’s commitment to a sustainable energy future.

Why did NatPower pledge money?

NatPower’s £10 billion investment is aimed at constructing 60 gigawatt hours of battery storage, along with solar and wind projects in the pipeline. This significant investment comes at a crucial time when the renewable energy industry is facing challenges due to the impacts of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and global inflation.

Why is renewable energy so important?

Renewable energy is a vital component in the quest to decarbonize Britain’s power grid and combat climate change. By harnessing renewable sources like wind and solar, we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and mitigate the environmental impact of traditional energy production. Battery storage projects play a pivotal role in this transition, allowing for the storage of renewable energy generated during optimal weather conditions for later use.

Is renewable energy a good investment?

Absolutely. Investing in renewable energy not only contributes to a cleaner, more sustainable future but also offers long-term financial rewards. As the world transitions towards a low-carbon economy, the demand for renewable energy sources and innovative technologies will continue to rise, presenting lucrative opportunities for investors.

“At New Capital Link, we firmly believe that investing in companies with strong environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices is not only the ethical choice but also a financially prudent one. The global transition towards a sustainable, low-carbon economy is well underway, and companies that embrace ESG principles are positioning themselves as leaders in this new era.

Due to the potential for losses, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) considers this investment to be very complex and high risk.

What are the key risks?

1. You could lose all the money you invest

If the business offering this investment fails, there is a high risk that you will lose all your money. Businesses like this often fail as they usually use risky investment strategies. 

Advertised rates of return aren’t guaranteed. This is not a savings account. If the issuer doesn’t pay you back as agreed, you could earn less money than expected or nothing at all. A higher advertised rate of return means a higher risk of losing your money. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

These investments are sometimes held in an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA). While any potential gains from your investment will be tax free, you can still lose all your money. An IFISA does not reduce the risk of the investment or protect you from losses.

2. You are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong

The business offering this investment is not regulated by the FCA. Protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) only considers claims against failed regulated firms. Learn more about FSCS protection here. https://www.fscs.org.uk/what-we-cover/investments/ or

Protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), in relation to claims against failed regulated firms, does not cover poor investment performance. Try the FSCS investment protection checker here. https://www.fscs.org.uk/check/investment-protection-checker/

The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) will not be able to consider complaints related to this firm or Protection from the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) does not cover poor investment performance. If you have a complaint against an FCA-regulated firm, FOS may be able to consider it. Learn more about FOS protection here. https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumers

3. You are unlikely to get your money back quickly

This type of business could face cash-flow problems that delay interest payments. It could also fail altogether and be unable to repay investors their money. 

You are unlikely to be able to cash in your investment early by selling it. You are usually locked in until the business has paid you back over the period agreed. In the rare circumstances where it is possible to sell your investment in a ‘secondary market’, you may not find a buyer at the price you are willing to sell.

4. This is a complex investment

This investment has a complex structure based on other risky investments. A business that raises money like this lends it to, or invests it in, other businesses or property. This makes it difficult for the investor to know where their money is going.

This makes it difficult to predict how risky the investment is, but it will most likely be high.

You may wish to get financial advice before deciding to invest.

5. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

Putting all your money into a single business or type of investment for example, is risky. Spreading your money across different investments makes you less dependent on any one to do well. 

A good rule of thumb is not to invest more than 10% of your money in high-risk investments. https://www.fca.org.uk/investsmart/5-questions-ask-you-invest
