This “marks an important milestone in bringing together capital from both the private and public sector to fund the next the phase of evolution in the U.K. solar” sector, said Mike Bonte-Friedheim, chief executive officer and founding partner of NextEnergy Capital. “Unsubsidized new-build solar projects represent an attractive investment opportunity.” The new fund, called NextPower UK ESG, wants to have a generation capacity of about 1 gigawatt from 30 domestic solar farms. That’s enough to power 280,000 households. Solar power sources can be built subsidy-free after a sharp drop in the price of panels.
