ARQIS advises Omnes Capital on solar energy investment

12. June 2020

ARQIS has advised Omnes Capital on signing a solar energy partnership through its Capenergie 4 fund, with ILOS New Energy in Germany. The French private equity firm invests through its Capenergie 4 fund.

The fund, dedicated to renewable energy, now has three deals in its portfolio after partnering with Spanish Prosolia Energy and investing in Danish solar energy supplier Better Energy. Other deals are currently in advanced stages of being analysed.

The goal of the Capenergie funds is to provide European renewable energy developers with growth capital to support their transformation into independent power producers. This transaction perfectly illustrates this strategy.

ILOS New Energy is an international solar power developer, based in Germany and founded by Michael Winter and Nikolaus Krane, two experts in utility-scale systems and the solar industry. The aim of this partnership is to create a platform of pan-European solar power projects exceeding 1,5 GW. The company has already developed a project pipeline comprising more than 500 MW in the Netherlands, Ireland, the UK, Spain and Italy. Omnes is partnering with the company with the objective to become an independent power producer (IPP) across several markets.
