Bluefield Solar Income Fund placed their focus on utility scale solar assets and portfolios on greenfield as they accept their responsibility in the process of converting the energy supply in a sustainable way. That is the reason why they are addressing their approach, to maximise the renewable energy and discontinue with the fossil fuels, by investing in renewable projects.
Having over 100 solar park assets in their portfolio, the company has decided to extend the investments to other renewable projects such as onshore wind, hydro and storage. Until today, the main focus of the investments were solar parks in the United Kingdom. Bluefield Solar Income Fund provides a portfolio with renewable projects in over 14 UK countries and thus come to a total installed capacity of over 610 MWp.
In May 2022, the Guernsey based investment group announced the purchase of their largest wind and solar portfolio to date. The 93MW portfolio will be comprised of 15 solar parks with a total installed capacity of 64.9MW and four windfarms with a total installed capacity of 28.3MW. The deal is financed via a revolving credit facility worth £200m provided by Santander UK and RBSi.
The UK-based renewable investment company acquired two battery storage projects with a total capacity of 80MW from Green Hedge Energy UK for €5.3 million. The two projects are located in Derbyshire and Worcestershire and construction will start in 2022. Initially, the investment focus of the company was only solar, but in July 2020 the company started to also invest into onshore wind, hydro and storage projects.
