CIP secures €5.6B to lead global greenfield renewable energy fund

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners sets sights on a record-breaking renewable energy fund, with €5.6 billion committed

A new era of green investments is underway as the CI V fund draws in top institutional investors from Europe, the Nordics, the UK, and the Asia-Pacific region. Building on the success of its predecessors, CI V sets its sights on large-scale renewable energy infrastructure projects worldwide. With a diverse portfolio spanning offshore wind, energy storage, onshore wind, and solar, this fund aims to add a staggering 20 GW of clean energy capacity to the grid. That's enough to power over 10 million households and reduce CO2 emissions by 15 million metric tons annually. The future of sustainable energy starts here.

In a major milestone, CI V has already made its first investment decision, backing a +400MW onshore wind project in the US. Construction is set to commence soon, marking the beginning of a remarkable journey towards a greener, more sustainable future.

Jakob Baruël Poulsen, Managing Partner at CIP, says, “We’re delighted by the continued trust in CIP from our existing investors, and are pleased to welcome the many new investors to our renewable energy platform. Reaching nearly EUR 6 billion at first close is a testament to the importance of the fund, and the confidence placed in our industrial approach to energy infrastructure investments. With its greenfield focus and large and diversified portfolio, CI V has the potential to significantly contribute to, and accelerate the energy transition on a global scale, while generating strong returns for our investors”
