Clean energy shares streak ahead of fossil fuel stocks

Quite an interesting story in the FT (Google the title and click through to get around the paywall).

Clean energy shares streak ahead of fossil fuel stocks - FT

The iShares Clean Energy exchange-traded fund has risen by 32 per cent so far this year, streaking far ahead of the oil-dominated Vanguard Energy ETF, which has risen by only 1 per cent.

Politics are helping here because of the pledges to reach net zero emissions but so is the reducing cost of wind and solar, which has made them cheaper than coal and natural gas at certain times in many markets.
