Investment strategy

Global climate infrastructure investments, primarily in renewable power, seeking financial returns with a purpose.

  • Stable growth and income potential from investments in renewable power and other climate infrastructure
  • Low correlation to public equity and fixed income markets with returns driven primarily by wind and solar resource
  • Positive and measurable impact aligned to the UN’s sustainable development goals (UN SDGs), and demonstrated in dollar terms
  • Risk diversification by geography, resource, technology and regulatory regime, mitigating stand-alone project risks

Market opportunity

Over the next 30 years there will be a shift in global power generation from two-thirds fossil fuels to two-thirds renewables. This presents a $9 trillion climate infrastructure opportunity.1

  • Climate infrastructure represents one-third of global infrastructure deal flow today, and is fueled by improving economics of renewable power, as well as social and political commitment to tackling climate change.
  • In developed markets, increasing energy efficiency is being offset by the ‘electrification of everything’, which is creating new demand for power from homes, office buildings, transport and light industry.
  • In emerging markets, GDP and population growth are driving demand for increased overall power generation, the majority of which is expected to be provided by renewables.
  • With increasing renewables penetration on power grids globally, substantial investment is required across other parts of the climate infrastructure value chain including energy storage, energy distribution and electrified transport.
