Blake Matich covered the launch of Foresight Group’s new renewable energy investment fund that looks to provide wholesale investors with CBI certified loans into smaller-scale renewable energy projects, particularly solar PV.
This was welcoming news despite the Clean Energy Council’s September report that stated the nation’s decline in renewable energy investments due to post-2020 state of affairs lacking in any federal energy or climate policy.
Our newly appointed Head of Australia at Foresight, Kim Nguyen said: “The Foresight Renewable Energy Income Fund is innovative in a global sense. We hope it helps put Australia on the map as an innovator in the fast-growing green debt capital markets.”
Our Head of Infrastructure, Nigel Aitchison commented on the intensifying interest for green bonds and renewable energy infrastructure, “Investors have shifted their focus to true-to-label investment solutions that directly contribute to the global decarbonisation agenda.”
