Social Responsibility

ESG

Ninetynine Seconds - Daniela-Hamann on ESG-Principles

ESG criteria are becoming increasingly important in the investment world. Aquila Capital pursues a holistic approach in this context. Acting responsibly towards the environment, investors and society are key factors to which Aquila Capital is committed.

Renewable Energies

Power Purchase Agreements

Ninetynine Seconds - Joakim Johnsen on Power Purchase Agreements

In the last five years, Europe has seen significant growth in the use of PPAs for renewable energy. This is largely due to decreasing costs of renewable energy generation, phasing out of feed-in-tariffs as well as growing corporate demand for green energy. Although PPAs are used in several countries across Europe, the majority are concentrated in just a few, where subsidies are limited. However, demand is spreading across the region and several renewable energy projects are seeking PPAs in order to become realised.

Ninetynine seconds – ESG-criteria and Real Estate Investments

Solar PV

Ninetynine seconds - Supporting wild bees on photovoltaic sites

Wild bees are central to our ecosystem and biodiversity. But they are threatened species and urgently need protection. Earlier this year, Aquila Capital started a project to colonise wild bees on its solar park land, because the habitat of wild platns and protective structures can help the bees thrive. Together with the University of Oldenburg, we are exploring the possibilities of a wild flower planting programme and providing additional nesting opportunities.

Erneuerbare Energien

Infrastructure

Ninetynine seconds - Economically and environmentally smart: District Heating as an investment in infrastructure

The phase-out of fossil fuels is well underway. District heating is an important component in the transformation of our economic system. Private investment capital plays a decisive role here. This is a highly attractive scenario for infrastructure investors. District heating projects not only offer access to several barely correlated sources of income but are generally supported by a stable political regime that ensures a high degree of planning security.
