What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Investment manager Downing LLP is expanding its focus on sustainable investing with a c.£3 million acquisition of Norwegian hydro power plant Lauvstad Kraftverk AS. 

The renewable energy and infrastructure arm of Downing Estate Planning Service has acquired 100% of Lauvstad Kraftverk AS from Fossberg Kraft AS, which has developed the c.6 GWh hydro power plant in the Drangedal region of southern Norway. 

Downing had already paid 20% of the purchase price to the project’s developer to part fund construction and the balance was paid at completion. 

The latest deal builds on a series of investments made by Downing in the Nordic region, which earlier this year also included its first investment in Finland - in addition to a number of hydropower assets in Norway through its partnership with Fossberg Kraft AS. 

Tom Williams, Head of Energy & Infrastructure at Downing, said: “The Lauvstad hydropower plant acquisition has represented an excellent opportunity to further expand our investment allocations in hydropower and the Nordic region.  

“Financing newbuilt hydro in the Nordic region is an important part of our strategy as we look to continuously diversify our portfolio by both geography and technology. By acquiring a hydropower plant that has recently been constructed, we have also diversified our investment portfolio further by project phase. We look forward to continuing our excellent relationship with Fossberg Kraft AS to further expand our Norwegian hydropower portfolio. 

“As a certified B Corp, we are committed to responsible investing and delivering on the strategy. We look forward to adding further attractive projects to our portfolio in due course.”  

Downing’s Energy and Infrastructure team has made more than 175 investments and has c.£785 million of assets under management- consisting of solar, wind, hydro and battery storage technology.
