Energy system transformation and financial markets

I am currently working on a project with Bert Scholtens on the impact of fossil divesting on investment portfolios.

The divestment movement tries to increase awareness about the need for climate action. It heralds divestment from fossil fuel firms as a means to combat climate change. Investors want to be assured of sufficient returns and limited risks to allow for subsistence of beneficiaries. We investigate the impact of divestment and the transformation of the energy system on investment performance. We conclude divesting from fossil fuels does not incur financial harm to investors, even when fossil would continue to play a dominant role for some time.
