We believe charities can earn a financial return and make a positive environmental impact by choosing to invest some of their capital and resources in renewable energy initiatives. Our long-standing expertise in investing in renewable energy means we can be a great partner to help charities invest and achieve their net zero objectives.Get in touch with the team
Why invest in renewable energy?
Investments in renewable energy projects can provide charities with recurring income, which can then be used to support their charitable purpose. Understanding the key performance indicators of these assets, such as renewable energy production levels, also enables charities to engage with their donors and beneficiaries about the contribution being made by the assets that they have invested in.
Charity investment case study
Human Capability Foundation (HCF) is a grant-making foundation in the UK that supports organisations working for the rights of marginalised communities. In 2022, we created a bespoke investment vehicle for the HCF to invest in renewable energy assets. The income generated by these long-term holdings in core renewables is intended to support some of the grants the HCF plans to make in the future.
