Specialist debt manager Infradebt focuses on direct investment in smaller utility-scale renewable projects under 25MW and typically valued from A$10 million to A$50 million. Infradebt’s ethically screened infrastructure debt fund Infradebt Ethical Fund (IEF), identifies and develops greenfield renewable energy projects around Australia, filling a gap in the private investment market for projects of this size. The CEFC has committed up to A$50 million in debt finance to Infradebt. Through its new mandate with Infradebt, the CEFC will invest alongside the IEF to boost the number of smaller utility-scale renewable energy project that are built around Australia.
In April of 2023, CEFC increased its commitment to $150 million.
