Our investments

Over the last decade, we have invested in more than 140 projects encompassing UK energy infrastructure and similar renewable ventures overseas.

Eco-friendly investments are helping to support efforts to minimise the need for fossils fuels. Not only does renewable energy investing help contribute to a greener society, but energy infrastructure investments also secure a safer, cleaner future for us all and generate sustainable results for stakeholders over the long term.

These renewable energy investing projects have stable, predictable, long-term cashflows and are often wholly or partly linked to inflation.

We have a dedicated infrastructure asset management team who provide our investors with an efficient and class leading management service. For more information on infrastructure asset management, visit the page here.

Diversification by Design

Our renewable energy investments span solar panel investments, wind energy investments, hydro-electric, energy storage investments, flexible generation and anaerobic digestion sectors. We believe that a diversified portfolio of renewable energy source investments enhances the stability of returns throughout the year, and year to year.

We support projects at all stages of their development from pre-construction through to mature operations. We have proven experience in managing complex contractual, technical and legal considerations within renewable energy infrastructure investment.

We invest across the capital structure and can support projects by lending debt or investing equity.
