SUSI Asia Energy Transition Fund Raises US$120 Million

Swiss fund management company SUSI Partners has held a final closing of its SUSI Asia Energy Transition Fund (SAETF). At closing, fund commitments totalled US$120 million. The SAETF invests in energy transition infrastructure across Southeast Asia, including investments in utility-scale renewable energy generation, energy efficiency, and distributed solar photovoltaics (PV) solutions. Seven development finance institutions (DFI) have contributed to the fund, including the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Dutch development bank FMO, Nordic DFIs Norfund and Swedfund, and the British International Investment. SAETF’s portfolio is currently comprised of four investments. This includes an energy efficiency-focused joint venture with Malaysian company InvestEnergy, a development platform for utility-scale renewable energy assets with Singapore-based Pacific Impact Development, and two investments focused on distributed solar PV solutions for commercial and industrial end clients with Singapore-based Entoria Energy and Asia Clean Capital Vietnam. SUSI, which controls €1.9 billion (US$2.06 billion) in AuM, said that the given the region’s rapid growth in energy demands over the past two decades, the development of sustainable energy infrastructure to deliver “widespread and secure access to clean and affordable energy across the region is still critically underserved by international capital markets”.
