Investment strategy

Photovoltaics Investments by Aquila Capital

Attracted by stable and predictable cash flows and relatively low volatility, investors have continued to increase their target portfolio allocations to photovoltaic investments in recent years. In 2015, investments in photovoltaics rose by 12% and the majority of investors say they plan to increase their allocations to the asset class in the long term1. Increased demand for photovoltaics is leading to strong competition for assets. Specialist expertise and robust deal flow are strategic advantages in a complex and fast moving market.

With a dedicated team of international photovoltaic experts, an extensive track record, a solid operational infrastructure and strong fiduciary mentality, Aquila Capital is able to offer investors renewable infrastructure investment solutions that provide continuous access to high-quality assets.

Aquila Capital is one of the largest financial investors in the European photovoltaic market2 having completed renewable energy transactions worth more than EUR 1.3 billion and with a track record in photovoltaic investments of 505 MWp.
