Power & Infrastructure Finance
Developing and financing conventional and renewable generation and transmission
What we do
Technology, climate change and economic growth are propelling activity in the power sector. Governments are turning to renewables in the hunt for clean power. Wind farms, solar PV, geothermal and biomass projects are being scaled up and accelerated.
In addition more thermal generation capacity is being commissioned to meet growing power requirements in fast growing new economies, to replace aging power generation equipment.
Our financial solutions help entrepreneurs and companies to take advantage of the latest opportunities. We include engineers as well as financiers in our teams.
We aim to understand the mechanics of each project, not just its financials. We use that knowledge to allocate capital selectively and efficiently.
‘We use our enthusiasm, technical capability, knowledge and Investec's capital to help our clients produce more green and conventional energy in many parts of the world.’
Olivier Fricot, Power & Infrastructure Finance
We have facilitated numerous projects in the renewable and conventional power sectors across the globe. We develop projects and structure financing to attract long-term financial backing. We advise, fund, arrange and lead-manage funding.
Where we act as funder, we are able to provide senior and mezzanine debt and equity finance. In selected markets we act as a developer of power projects, either in our own right or in conjunction with experienced and dynamic partners.
TEG Food and Green Waste Processing Project
Investec provided part of £7.9m senior debt to support the construction of this £21m state of the art IVC and AD waste processing plant located in East London. The plant will divert 49,000 tonnes of waste from landfill and produce 1.4MW of power.
