Berkeley Energy is an investment manager founded in 2007 to invest private equity into renewable energy infrastructure in developing markets. It manages:
The Renewable Energy Asia Fund (REAF) invests into small hydro, wind, geothermal, solar, landfill gas and biomass projects in Asian developing markets, with a primary focus to date in India and the Philippines.
The Africa Renewable Energy Fund (AREF) invests into small hydro, wind, geothermal, solar, stranded gas and biomass projects across Sub-Saharan Africa, excluding South Africa.
Berkeley Energy has deep renewable energy and power engineering, construction and investment experience in developing markets, where it is a focused investor, developer and deliverer of renewable power assets. Berkeley works with its partner companies to provide engineering, management and financial support, whilst offering the ability to act as a bankable sponsor for renewable power projects.
Once built, Berkeley Energy matures and consolidates its assets regionally or by technology into operating portfolios which it would seek to exit.
Our approach is hands-on, asset-first, technically orientated. We look to receive our returns through holding equity in well-conceived and constructed projects and not through development fees, consultancy or asset-flipping.
Berkeley Energy has offices in London, Singapore, Mauritius, Delhi and Nairobi and a presence in Manila.
Members of the group are authorised and regulated respectively by the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority and in Mauritius by the Financial Services Commission.
