- Akuo Energy and CIP have struck a joint venture partnership for Indonesian renewables market
- They plan to develop more than 400 MW of onshore wind, solar and run of river hydro power projects as part of their initial pipeline
- CIP will invest through CI NMF that has entered the country’s renewables market through this transaction
The Indonesian presence of French renewable energy company Akuo Energy has entered a joint venture with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) to undertake the development of more than 400 MW onshore wind, solar and run of river hydro power projects in Indonesia.
The partners explain that this pipeline of 400 MW equals approximately 4.5% of the additional capacity required for Indonesia to reach its target of 23% renewable energy by 2025.
PT Akuo Energy Indonesia and Copenhagen Infrastructure New Markets Fund I (CI NMF) see this capacity as an initial portfolio for their joint venture which would be the latter’s maiden investment in the Indonesian renewable energy market.
“Indonesia is a market with relatively limited renewable energy penetration, but very significant potential, and is therefore a key focus market for CI NMF. We look forward to delivering best of class, large scale and cost competitive renewable energy to Indonesia,” said Partner and Head of CI NMF Niels Holst.
Recently, CI NMF signed an agreement with Amp Energy India to jointly make equity investments of more than $200 million in Indian renewable energy projects, making it the former’s 1st investment in the Indian renewable energy market (see North America PV Snippets: Buckeye, Duke, SunPower, Waaree, Amp).
