Correction and reissue: Africa Renewable Energy Fund II secures E130 million first close with SEFA and CTF investments

07/01/2021 | 03:15am EDT

The Africa Renewable Energy Fund II has achieved its first close at EUR130 million, following a joint investment of EUR17.5 million from The Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa and the Climate Technology Fund through the African Development Bank (www.AfDB.org).

AREF II, a successor to the original Fund, is a 10-year closed-ended renewable energy Private Equity Fund with a $300 million target capitalization. The Africa Renewable Energy Fund II, managed by Berkeley Energy, invests in early-stage renewable energy projects, thereby not only de-risking the most uncertain phase of power projects, but also promoting increased green baseload in Africa's generation mix.

The Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa and the Climate Technology Fund will each contribute roughly EUR8.7 million to mobilize private-sector investment into Africa's renewable energy sector. The Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa will also contribute financing to the AREF II Project Support Facility, which funds technical assistance and early-stage project support to improve bankability.

The other investors are the U.K's CDC Group, Italy's CDP, the Netherlands Development Finance Company (FMO), SwedFund and Proparco.

"We are proud to be associated with Berkeley Energy and other like-minded investors, and look forward to AREF's continued success and leadership in promoting sustainable power development on the continent," said Dr. Kevin Kariuki, the African Development Bank's Vice President for Power, Energy, Climate and Green Growth.

In 2012, the African Development Bank selected Berkeley Energy, a seasoned fund manager of clean energy projects in global emerging markets to set up AREF. AREF II has a sharper strategic focus than its predecessor on "green baseload" projects that will deliver firm and dispatchable power to African power systems through hydro, solar, wind and battery storage technologies.

Luka Buljan, Berkeley Energy's Managing Director, said: "We are very excited to have reached this milestone with strong support from our backers. The catalytic tranche from the Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa and the Climate Technology Fund will assist in mobilising private institutional investors up to full fund size of EUR300 million. We now look forward to concluding the fundraising and delivering projects that will provide clean, reliable and affordable energy across African markets."

"AREF is intertwined with the Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa's history and success, and we have worked closely over the last decade to create precedents in difficult markets and challenging technologies. We look forward to continued collaboration to accelerate the energy transition in Africa," said Joao Duarte Cunha, Manager for Renewable Energy Initiatives at the African Development Bank and Coordinator of the Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa.

About SEFA:

SEFA is an African Development Bank-managed special fund providing catalytic finance for renewable energy. SEFA's overarching goal is to contribute to universal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy services for all in Africa, in line with the Bank's New Deal on Energy for Africa and Sustainable Development Goal 7. SEFA was established in 2011 in partnership with the Government of Denmark (um.dk/en/danida-en) and has since received contributions from the Governments of United States (www.usaid.gov), United Kingdom (https://bit.ly/3ju9oMT), Italy (www.minambiente.it), Norway (www.norad.no/en), Spain (www.mineco.gob.es), and Sweden (www.sida.se/en), Nordic Development Fund (www.ndf.fi) and Germany (www.bmz.de/en).

About CTF:

The $5.4 billion CTF is one of the two multi-donor trust funds within the wider Climate Investment Funds (CIF). It promotes scaled-up financing for demonstration, deployment and transfer of low-carbon technologies with significant potential for long-term greenhouse gas emissions savings. The Bank became an Implementing Entity of the CIF in 2010 and since then has approved over $588 million in CTF resources for a total of 10 projects across Africa.
