Our investments

Over the last decade we have invested in more than 140 projects across a wide range of renewable energy and infrastructure sectors in the UK and overseas. This is helping to support efforts to minimise the need for fossils fuels, one of the main contributing factors to climate change, while generating sustainable returns for our investors over the long term and securing a safer, cleaner future.  

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

Diversification by Design

Our investments span the wind, solar, hydro-electric, energy storage, flexible generation and anaerobic digestion sectors.  We believe that a diversified portfolio of investments enhances 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, and have proven experience in managing complex contractual, technical and legal considerations. 

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