Following its impressive performance in May 2022, becoming the first public sector company in over a year after the first quarter results of the Life Insurance Corporation of India, IREDA made a noteworthy entry into the capital market. The majority of IREDA’s asset portfolio includes solar energy (30%), followed by wind energy (20.9%), state utilities (19.2%), and hydropower (11.5%).
IREDA is India’s only Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) dedicated to Renewable Energy (RE). As the country’s largest pure-play green financing NBFC, IREDA holds a unique position, aligning itself well with select well-equipped organizations to take advantage of ample expansion in the renewable energy sector.
After the market closed on Friday, in a regulatory filing, IREDA announced the establishment of its retail segment. This strategic move is designed to strengthen the company’s focus on providing loans to beneficiaries in sectors such as the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM-KUSUM) scheme, rooftop solar projects, and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) needs.
Apart from participating in an IPO for potential listing benefits, analysts suggest adopting a long-term investment perspective to enhance the focus on the renewable energy sector, citing the government’s commitment to the first mover advantage. Despite limited historical charting, some investors express optimism, foreseeing the stock reaching close to ₹100 in the near future.
Nirmal Bang recommends that sustained growth in its loan portfolio can be secured through diversification and expansion into emerging green technologies. These technologies include green hydrogen, pumped hydro storage power plants, battery storage cost curve, and the development of green energy corridors.
