Global PE fund, Actis, proposes to invest $850 million to build two new green energy platforms in the country. One of these green energy platforms proposes to connect to its grid-connected solar and wind power parks. On the other hand, the other green energy platform will be for its commercial and industrial segment.

These two investments totalling $850 million approximately are expected to be made from the Actis Energy 5 LP fund. Today, most of the global private equity names are queueing up for solid renewable energy plays and are increasingly betting on the renewable energy space. India has been adding capacities aggressively and this appears to be the go-to place.

Most of the PE players and strategic investors look at India as the leading force in this alternate energy revolution in the coming years. Actis will also operate its renewable and road assets through Actis Long Life Infrastructure Fund. This is essentially is a yield-based fund from the Actis stable. Actis has been active in India for a long time now.
