List of 3 large European renewables-focused private equity funds
The renewables sector is getting increasingly important for European investment managers that are either acquiring solar and wind parks directly or acquiring stakes in renewable energy firms. We are introducing you to three exciting renewable energy private equity investors from our list in the following.
1. Actis (London, UK)
The London-based private equity firm Actis call itself the “leading global investor in sustainable infrastructure”. The firm manages more than $24bn and was founded in 2004. Focus sectors of actis are energy infrastructure, long life infrastructure, digital infrastructure, real estate and private equity. Current investments in the energy sector include Zuma Energia, Yellow Door Energy or Valia Energia. The latter is a 2.2GW buy-and-build electricity generation platform. Another investment, Rezolv Energy, is a clean power producer launched in 2022, with focus on central and south eastern Europe. For instance, the firm signed an agreement to develop 1GW of wind projects.
Update 2024: In late 2023, Actis, a British private equity firm, completed its initial real estate divestment in Vietnam. An Phat Holdings has acquired the 49% of the investment previously held by Actis, their operating partner.
