An IPO and 300 million pounds expected

NREN will be managed by NextEnergy Capital IM Limited, a global investment manager specializing in the renewable energy sector and part of the NextEnergy Group.

A favorable context for investment in renewable energy

NREN aims to capitalize on the strong growth prospects to come. According to Anne Wade, the timing of the fund’s launch is favorable since there is a “large universe of investments.” Indeed, renewable energies are expected to account for the majority of the electricity produced in the world by 2030.

Between 2019 and 2050, an estimated $13.3 trillion should be invested in new power generation capacity, equivalent to $416 billion per year. 80% of these new investments concern renewable energies. In this sense, NREN plans to raise more funds once the company is listed on the stock exchange, to take advantage of this context.
