Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners unveils € 100 billion green energy investment plan


Fund manager Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) plans to spend € 100 billion on green energy by 2030.

About 30% of this amount would be spent on offshore wind, with the rest going to onshore wind, solar, power-to-x and other energy transition technologies, including energy islands and electricity. use and storage of carbon capture and storage (CCUS).

CIP plans to be “globally active”, investing in markets in Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America, said partner Michael Hannibal Monthly wind energy.

Hannibal believes that CIP’s € 100 billion investment will unlock an additional € 100 billion from lenders.
