Fund manager hires banker for U.S. renewables push

September 19, 2017jodixonNews0

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners has hired William Demas, SVP at Macquarie Capital in New York, to lead a push into the U.S. renewable energy sector.

Demas, who is currently on gardening leave, is expected to join CIP in December.

The fund manager is expected to allocate some 30-40% of its latest fund, Copenhagen Infrastructure III, to the U.S. renewables sector.

CIP recently reached a third close of the new fund with €1.9 billion ($2.2 billion) of commitments.

Unlike many other infrastructure investors, CIP is able to invest in early-stage projects and take development risk.

CIP also recently partnered with Avangrid Renewables on the Vineyard Wind offshore wind development project off the Massachusetts coast.
