The global shift towards renewables is accelerating, making the case for the top renewable energy stocks to buy in 2024. With global efforts to combat climate change, investments in renewable energy technologies are not only environmentally prudent but also financially promising. 

As the world continues to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels, companies specializing in wind, solar, hydrogen and other renewables are set to capitalize on this surging demand. The transition will be met by government support from policies such as the Inflation Reduction Act. It plans to commit approximately $369 billion to renewable energy projects, pollution reduction, and environmental justice.

Furthermore, a more dovish Federal Reserve could further bolster risk appetite and investments in infrastructure and clean energy. Investors seeking both strong returns and a positive environmental impact can benefit from the long-term potential upside of the renewable energy sector.

Now, let’s discover the top 3 renewable energy stocks promising powerful profits in 2024 and beyond!

Linde (NYSE:LIN), a global industrial gas giant, is well-positioned to capitalize on the growing hydrogen economy. The company’s expertise in hydrogen production, storage, and distribution makes it a frontrunner in this emerging market.

Linde’s recent investments in hydrogen infrastructure highlight its commitment to this market. It has not shied away from the sector, even despite the increased operating costs to fund these multi-billion dollar projects. Additionally, what makes Linde a standout investment in renewable energy is that it is not reliant on hydrogen-like many of its competitors.

So, if its long-term bets on the hydrogen economy don’t pay off, it will do just fine, as compared to players like Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG). Despite top-line growth remaining flat in FY23, the company saw significant operating margin and profit expansion. Furthermore, earnings per share increased 10% year over year in Q1 FY24. Linde’s established presence and technological capabilities will drive approximately 8-10% EPS growth in FY24. This makes LIN stock one of the top renewable energy stocks to snap up before the next leg higher
