HgCapital is a leading private equity firm with over £5 billion of assets under management.
In 2004, HgCapital was one of the first significant UK private equity firms to establish a dedicated renewable energy investment team. They raised their first dedicated fund in 2006 with a second fund raised in 2011. The HgCapital team is highly specialised in the renewable energy space and brings over 70 years of combined industry experience. They invest in renewable energy projects in Western Europe with proven technologies such as onshore wind, solar and small hydro by backing leading management teams to build A-grade portfolios of renewable energy infrastructure assets.
Beyond their partnership with REI, with whom they are developing, owning and managing commercial solar PV assets across the UK, HgCapital is a leading financial investor in onshore wind farms in Scandinavia and one of Ireland’s leading independent wind power producers. They are also active in the Swedish biomass-fired district heating market and, in Spain, they manage two large portfolios of large-scale solar photovoltaic plants and of small-hydro power plants.
