Climate Change Capital operates a number of funds directed towards the clean technology sector. We have a private equity fund, a property fund, and an infrastructure finance fund. Our investments are focused on Europe-based companies and projects.
Our private equity fund invests in expansion capital into later stage companies and finance management buy-outs ranging from €5-20m per company.

We target investments in the high growth clean technology areas of: clean power – renewable energy and cleaner fossil fuels; clean transport – biofuels and transport efficiency; energy efficiency – electricity grid improvements, storage solutions and energy efficient buildings, devices and processes; waste recovery – energy from waste and materials recycling; water – desalination, advanced water treatment and water efficiency solution. Our private equity fund presently has investments in Climate Energy (energy efficiency), Nualight (LEDs). PowerPlus (smartgrid), SulfurCell, EnerQos, MetallKraft (solar).

Since 2005 the Ventus Funds have invested in over 20 projects, totalling over 50 megawatts of capacity across a range of generating technologies including: onshore wind power, landfill gas, hydro electric and biomass. Our investment activities are primarily focused on minority stakes in small to medium sized UK renewable energy projects and companies with operating assets.
