Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners has closed its new energy transition fund at a hard cap of 3 billion euros.

“We are very pleased to welcome a prominent group of existing and new institutional investors to CI ETF I and are delighted that investors share our confidence in and appetite for clean energy infrastructure projects and invest alongside CIP in the next phase of the energy transition. Solutions such as Power-to-X will be key for countries and industries to take the next big leap within reaching the commitments of the Paris agreement and achieving energy independence,” said Jakob Baruël Poulsen, a managing partner in CIP, in a statement.
CI ETF I will invest in next generation renewable energy infrastructure including industrial scale Power-to-X projects. The fund will primarily focus on greenfield projects in the OECD and aims to contribute to the decarbonization of industries such as agriculture, aviation, shipping, chemical manufacturing, and steel production through the use of green fuels and feedstock and CO2-free fertilizers.
