The Strategy

In addition to the expansion of renewable energies, energy efficiency is an important component of the energy transition and makes a valuable contribution to climate protection. Significant investment is needed in order to achieve the 2030 climate targets, but many infrastructure owners and operators do not have the financial resources to adopt the necessary technologies for enhanced efficiency.

Energy efficiency includes a broad range of proven technologies, which benefit the user – typically commercial and industrial companies or the public administration – by reducing its energy costs. Such technologies include LED lighting, cogeneration plants, air conditioning, heating and ventilation technologies, high efficient boilers as well as roof-mounted photovoltaic plants for self-consumption. By sharing the expected cost savings between the user and the investor, the investor achieves an attractive return while the user reduces immediately its energy cost without incurring any upfront investment.

Our experienced investment team has extensive experience in developing energy efficiency projects with highly attractive risk-adjusted returns across a broad range of sectors, technologies and counterparties.
