Infrastructure

Financing energy efficiency

We manage the Environmental Capital Fund, an infrastructure fund that provides capital for small scale clean energy projects.

Investment amount: up to £9 million

Sector focus

Energy efficiency, small wind, district heating, energy centres, small hydro and heat pump projects.

Geographic focus

UK base

What we look for:

  • predictable earnings

  • a project at operational stage or construction ready

  • low counter-party risk

  • low technology, tariff and regulatory risks

If your project meets our criteria, please send us your business plan or contact one of our energy infrastructure investment experts.

The Environmental Capital Fund broadens our reach and extends our successful partnerships with SSE plc and Lexington Partners. The market for clean energy infrastructure finance is very attractive and under-served. We are interested in a variety of projects from combined heat and power to wind energy and energy efficiency.
