Will the bear market hurt clean energy?

A look at whether an economic correction spells trouble for clean energy deployment.

A version of this episode originally ran on Catalyst w/​Shayle Kann.

On The Carbon Copy podcast this week:

Stock markets are in decline. Inflation is on the rise. Interest rates are up. Private tech companies are laying off workers.

Is this the long-awaited market correction that never quite materialized during the bull market of the last 13 years?

And what does it mean for climatetech?

In this episode, Shayle talks to Saloni Multani, a partner at Galvanize Climate Solutions and former chief financial officer for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign.

Shayle and Saloni place the current moment in historical context. They cover the recent wave of low-cost capital that poured into climatetech and the low interest rates that gave renewables an advantage over fossil fuel investments.
