Infrastructure Investor interviews Barney Coles, Co-Head of the Clean Energy team, to hear his perspective and insights on why the energy transition is more critical now than ever. As the array of investment options in energy transition continues to expand, Barney looks at where to find the opportunities of today and what is coming down the line.
“In the medium term, we expect to see an expansion of new renewables capacity across Europe as governments loosen restrictions and pass new legislation to facilitate further development activities, while what may be now considered ‘frontier’ technology (such as hydrogen, and to some extent, batteries) will become more mainstream and vital to LP portfolios,” comments Barney.
