Supporting energy and digital transition
We invest in the sustainable infrastructure of small and medium-sized companies operating in the digital and energy sectors. This comprises digital, energy-transition and renewable-energy infrastructure, both existing and new. When selecting our investments, we also look for a low risk of redundancy and technological obsolescence. All our assets contribute to a low-carbon economy, meet ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) criteria and are aligned with the EU taxonomy for sustainable activities, the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal, which aims for net zero emissions by 2050.
One fund, three sectors
The first fund to be raised in 2022 will cover three sectors:
- Renewable energies: sustainable energy production (wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, hydrogen, biomass, biogas, bioenergy), along with waste management, water/wastewater and circular economy projects;
- Energy transition infrastructure: energy storage, smart grids, smart meters, smart city infrastructure, e-mobility and clean transport infrastructure;
- Digital infrastructure: data centers, fiber-optic networks, telecoms towers, subsea cables and IoT (Internet of Things).

These investments span across four of the sub-sectors targeted by the Fund with a strong pipeline of upcoming opportunities across the entire spectrum of the transition infrastructure space in Europe. ETIF is classified as an article 9 under the SFDR.
