Government’s renewables push to power up equipment makers

The government’s recent and upcoming auctions of renewable energy projects may provide a boost to the stocks of Ujaas Energy, Suzlon Energy and PTC India, which are engaged in green energy production and financing.

Suzlon and PTC India are expected to be the beneficiaries of the government’s 1000 MW wind power auctions last month. The power generated will be supplied to states that do not have adequate wind resources.

Bid wins will provide more revenue visibility and capacity expansion opportunities in the coming quarters for these companies. In terms of magnitude, 1000 MW of electricity can power 10 lakh homes and represents a business opportunity for more than Rs 5,000 crore, according to analysts.

On Wednesday, shares of Suzlon ended 1.41% lower while PTC India fell 1.30% and Ujaas Energy ended 1% down. Suzlon, a wind turbine supplier, could bag an order for 250 MW from Sembcorp which was one of the winners in the auction, said analysts.

“The potential exposure to new, non-windy markets for Suzlon is a positive. It could provide a new source of order inflows in the coming years,“ said Deepak Agrawala, analyst at Elara Securities. “The technological developments on wind turbine generators and potential exit from corporate debt restructuring are still to play out, so the stock has suf ficient room for upside.“ Analysts said the company’s valuation at 16.2 times its 2017 earnings also look attractive.

The government has set a target of 12-15 GW expansion in solar energy projects by the end of this year and execution of 3 GW of these are set to take place in the next two months. Ujaas Energy will benefit from these auctions as the company is looking to bid for orders above 50 MW, analysts said.The company’s current order book stands at 50 MW.
