Mission, Vision and Values

Berkeley Energy delivers profitable clean energy projects into global emerging markets that provide sustainable benefits to people and the environment.

Berkeley Energy perseveres to ensure its projects are delivered responsibly and with integrity.

At all times, we aim to achieve this by building the trust of our stakeholders and employing rigour in our professional approach.

Berkeley Energy

Berkeley Energy, founded in 2007, 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 Energy 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 achieve our returns through holding equity in well-conceived and constructed projects.

Berkeley Energy has offices in London, Singapore, Nairobi, Mauritius, Delhi and Manila.

Members of the group are authorised and regulated by the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority and in Mauritius by the Financial Services Commission.

Berkeley Energy Funds

Berkeley Energy currently has three funds under management, two in relation to Asia: the Renewable Energy Asia Fund (REAF) which is fully deployed and the Renewable Energy Asia Fund II (REAFII) and the other in relation to Sub-Saharan Africa: the Africa Renewable Energy Fund (AREF).

REAF, REAF II and AREF invest into development stage renewable energy assets using proven technologies. Investments are supported by local renewable energy legislation and commercial market drivers. Berkeley Energy develops projects and manages projects through construction and into operations.

Berkeley Energy Team

Berkeley Energy has assembled a team with a balance of operating and financial expertise to underpin the successful execution of the firm’s strategy.

Cumulatively, within Berkeley Energy, the management has invested in over 30 individual renewable energy projects in 9 different emerging markets. This experience of successfully identifying, costing, constructing and operating assets across technologies, countries and regulatory environments is a competitive advantage and key value driver for the firm.

Berkeley Energy’s technical and operational capabilities are complemented with dedicated financing, legal and structuring professionals with experience in private equity, infrastructure and renewable energy transactions. This balance of operational and transaction expertise combines the project development, construction and operations expertise of an industrial firm, with the flexibility, financial rigour and discipline of a financial sponsor.
