Tikehau Capital's Green Assets Fund targets proven technologies that can accelerate the decarbonisation of the European economy and boost renewable power generation.
This award reflects the global alternative asset managers' focus on supporting technologies that have both an immediate and lasting impact.
In 2022 Tikehau Capital invested in 'agrivoltaic' solutions that bring together the often-competing land-use requirements of farmers and sustainable power generators, by developing livestock shelters fitted with rooftop solar panels, alongside tree planting that help regenerate the soil and provide natural shelter.
These projects are designed to produce renewable energy over a 30-year period – which can then be sold into the grid – and transform what can be a cost for farmers – providing animal shelter – into a welcome source of additional revenue.
Tikehau Capital's investment director, Clara Mouysset said: "Tikehau Green Assets is an innovative impact fund which invests in projects that are contributing to the decarbonisation of the building, transport, energy, and industrial sectors.
This award is great recognition of Tikehau Capital's commitment to providing financing solutions that address the climate emergency, which is one of our key strategic priorities."
