    Statkraft first company registered to supply I-RECs in Brazil 09/01/2016
    ... by Statkraft’s 35 megawatts windfarm Macaúbas, located in Bahia. The windfarm, co-owned with the Brazilian pension fund FUNCEF, was commissioned in July 2012 and has an average annual production of 140 gigawatt hours. “We supported Instituto Totum in becoming the first local issuer for the I-REC Standard and in implementing this market together with stakeholders,” says Kleber Costa, Head of International Markets Brazil at Statkraft. “In addition to supporting our own power generation business, we will also work with other renewable generators in Brazil to certify their assets and market the certificates for them.”  “We are happy to pioneer the development of the I-REC Standard in Brazil. It makes us proud to be the first generator in the market to register a power plant under this scheme. I-RECs will provide reliable support for renewable production in Brazil and will help to promote the development of new renewable capacity in the system,” says Fernando de Lapuerta, CEO of Statkraft in Brazil. This is not the first time Statkraft has supported the development of renewable markets internationally, as its work in this field started 15 years ago in the European markets. Recently Statkraft has been helping to develop these markets internationally as they have seen the benefits of these systems first hand. “We have been offering I-RECs in other countries and are happy to add Brazil to the map. Consumers are becoming increasingly knowledgeable and interested in where their electricity comes from. One great example of this trend is the RE100, a group of larger companies committed to 100% renewable power,” says Abderrahman Kasmi, Senior Originator from Statkraft’s Global Environmental Markets team. The I-REC Standard is an initiative for the tracking of electricity that helps end-users reliably document the origin of their electricity consumption where established REC markets do not exist. Every I-REC is equivalent to 1 megawatt hour of electricity produced by a renewable power source. Instituto Totum is the Brazilian certification body responsible for the verification of power generation projects in Brazil and the RECs issuance. ...

    Ireland: €250 Million Close for NTR Wind Fund 02/29/2016
    ...Strathclyde Pension Fund and the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund join previously announced investors NTR plc and Legal & General Capital, bringing the equity in the fund to a hard cap total of €250 million. NTR Wind 1 Fund was launched by NTR plc to invest in onshore wind projects in Ireland and the UK. At around 270MW of capacity, the fund’s total equity and project finance capital requirement amounts to approximately €670m. The fund is well underway in deploying into ready to build onshore wind assets with an active pipeline of further investments across the UK and Irish markets. A minimum of €80 million is targeted to be invested in pre-construction renewable investments in the Irish Single Electricity Market. Said NTR Chief Executive Rosheen McGuckian; “We are delighted to have attracted such calibre of institutional money into this, our first wind management fund. The line up of institutional investment partners that have come into the fund is a validation of NTR’s track record and of our proposition to make long term investments in attractive yielding renewable assets.” The Strathclyde Pension Fund has funds of over £15.37 billion under management and a range of direct investments across the renewable energy sector. It has commitments of €50 million into the NTR Fund and its subscription to the NTR Fund marks Strathclyde’s first major investment in the Irish wind energy market, which is considered to provide stable and attractive long-term yields. Chair of Strathcyde Pension Fund and City Treasurer at Glasgow City Council, Bailie Philip Braat said; “Strathclyde has been steadily increasing its involvement in renewable energy and the €50 million we are committing to NTR today is one of our biggest investments in wind power to date. The assets NTR has, both under construction and in the pipeline, make this a solid opportunity for our members and when you look at the money the fund has been able to attract, we feel we are in very good company.” The Ireland Strategic Investment Fund, which is managed and controlled by the National Treasury Management Agency, has a mandate to invest on a commercial basis in a manner designed to support economic activity and employment in Ireland. Ireland Strategic Investment Fund Director Eugene O’Callaghan said: “The strength of NTR’s business plan, management team and Irish pipeline for this fund are attractive to us and we are very pleased to have co-investors of the calibre of Legal & General and Strathclyde alongside us in this investment.” In addition to its direct investment in the NTR Wind 1 Fund, Legal & General has partnered with NTR in order to explore further prospects to invest in the clean energy sector, through an investment in NTR’s clean energy investment and asset management business, NTR Wind Management Limited.  John Bromley, Head of Clean Energy at Legal & General Capital, commented: “Clean, green energy is the future and we are very happy with the progress the fund and NTR are making in getting long-term institutional money into the energy market. Investment into new technology will deliver massive leaps in renewable energy capacity, and drive down the household bills for renewable energy for customers.” Advisors to NTR were Arthur Cox (Dublin), Canaccord Genuity (London), Carey Olsen (Jersey), and KPMG (Dublin). ...
