Equity investments

renewable energy project developers and investors in Sub-Saharan Africa

Investment approach

Funds managed by responsAbility develop and invest in renewable energy generation assets that either feed into the grid or serve captive off-takers.

Funds managed by responsAbility invest across the full project development cycle and can engage as early as prefeasibility study stage. They can act as the lead or co-developer and investor or take a more passive role as an investor with a significant minority stake.
