Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners’ €800 Million Fundraising

Only two months after final closing of the latest flagship fund, Copenhagen Infrastructure IV, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has raised EUR 800 million in the first closing of a new fund, Copenhagen Infrastructure Energy Transition Fund I (CI ETF I). CI ETF I will invest in next generation green energy infrastructure.

CIP continues to write Danish business history by raising a new investment strategy focusing on next generation renewable energy infrastructure, including industrial scale Power-to-X projects. In that way, CIP enables institutional investors to participate in the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate industries, for example the transport and shipping industry.

The fund will be focusing on greenfield projects in primarily Western Europe, North America, Australia and OECD countries in Asia.

The fund is seeded with a portfolio of development projects. In the first closing, capital was raised from Nordic and German investors. The global fundraising continues with a target commitment of EUR 2.25 billion.

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners P/S (CIP) is a fund management company focused on energy infrastructure including offshore wind, onshore wind, solar PV, biomass and energy-from-waste, transmission and distribution, re-serve capacity and storage, and other energy assets like Power-to-X. CIP has approximately 195 employees and offices in Copenhagen, Hamburg, New York, Tokyo, Utrecht, and London.
