Investors in UK stock markets can select from a range of companies and funds focused on renewable energy generation, particularly wind and solar. Many offer an attractive yield and the choice is growing wider with new funds being launched.
Guernsey-incorporated NextEnergy Solar Fund Ltd plans to raise £150 million to finance the development of solar photovoltaic assets in the UK and asset manager Ingenious Investments is launching a new £160 million cleantech investment fund called Ingenious Clean Energy Income. Guernsey-registered John Laing Environmental Assets Group Ltd is raising up to £160 million to invest in environmental infrastructure assets. All three will join the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange and are issuing shares at 100p each.
