Capital Dynamics, an independent global private asset management firm, today announced that its Clean Energy Infrastructure (CEI) team was named the ‘2019 Global Energy Private Equity Firm of the Year’ by Private Equity International’s (PEI) global awards series.
“This prestigious accolade celebrates another highly successful year for our Clean Energy Infrastructure team and reflects the significant contribution from each member of the more than 20-strong global CEI team,” said Martin Hahn, Chief Executive Officer of Capital Dynamics.
"In 2019, our Clean Energy Infrastructure team continued our leadership in the Renewable Energy Sector by adding over 1.5GW of additional solar capacity to our portfolio, which now includes 7 of the 20 largest solar projects in the U.S., as well as mid-sized projects in every major region and a broad portfolio of DG projects. In addition, we are now playing a leading role in the storage sector with nearly 3 GWh of batteries in our construction pipeline,” said John Breckenridge, Global Head of Capital Dynamics’ Energy Infrastructure team.
“I want to thank our investors and industry partners for their continued support as well as PEI and the many people in the sector who helped select us for this prestigious award.”Private Equity International’s awards recognize firms that have distinguished themselves in terms of investment activity, fundraising and overall performance globally. The winners of each category were determined by a public vote.
Entering 2020, Capital Dynamics has continued its investing momentum and deployed significant capital to solar power generation and storage. In February, the team signed a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Indiana Municipal Power Agency (IMPA) in coordination with Tenaska. In January, the team invested in the 400MW Eland Solar & Storage Center through a development partnership with 8minute Solar Energy, which is expected to become the second largest energy storage facility in the U.S. once completed.
