The Green Investment Group was initially launched in 2012 by the UK Government under the name UK Green Investment Bank plc. After five years of investments in the green infrastructure, the Sydney based Macquarie Group Limited acquired the British company and combined it with its own renewable Team, the Macquarie Capital renewable team. The Macquarie Group has been active in the green sector since 2005 and continuous strives to reduce the emerging emissions.
The Edinburgh based company, which is also stock-listed (FRA: GRYG) has not only been active across Europe, but also manages worldwide investments into renewable projects. Thus, they invested in offshore wind farms in the Asian region. In total, the offshore wind parks produce approximately 8 GW of wind power. In Addition, they also provide solar parks in the US and many onshore wind parks across Europe.
