Aquila Capital, the alternative investment company, is delighted to announce that it has been voted the winner of the Swedish Renewable Energy Award 2018.
The award, given by the Swedish Wind Energy Association (SWEA), was presented during the VIND conference in Stockholm on October 24th. The aim of the award is to highlight role models in the business world that understand the need for renewable energy and the industry’s key role in this transition. Previous winners include Apple, IKEA, Tesla and Google.
Aquila Capital has rapidly become one of Sweden’s most active renewable infrastructure investors. Its systematically growing Swedish portfolio includes Project Valhalla, one of the largest wind farms in Europe, located in Sweden’s Bollnäs and Ockelbo municipalities. Since the firm’s inception, Aquila Capital has invested in renewable energy assets with a total capacity of approximately 3 GW.
Earlier this year Aquila Capital launched the Energy Transition Infrastructure Fund (ETIF), which invests in the three most important subsectors of Europe’s energy transition, namely renewable energy generation, energy storage and energy transportation.
Roman Rosslenbroich, Co-founder and CEO at Aquila Capital, commented:
“We are thrilled to be the recipients of such a prestigious award. Sweden continues to play a vital role in Europe’s transition to renewable energy and we look forward to expanding our presence here over the coming years. As one of Europe’s largest investors in renewable infrastructure we want to be valued not only for the quality of our assets, but also the way we manage them. Integrating these two objectives is central to our corporate philosophy and this award is testament to the progress we’re making.”
