An international financial institution was looking to place more than $100 million in the renewable and clean energy sectors in Asia. Dalberg was retained to evaluate fund managers and select those providing the highest financial returns and the strongest impact in the sectors.Dalberg Approach
Dalberg acted as an advisor and gatekeeper for our client's private equity fund for energy investments, with support during the call for proposals and selection of feeder funds. We targeted renewable energy and energy efficiency in the institution's member countries across Asia. As part of the project, Dalberg led the interview process for each fund and an extensive due diligence process on funds and projects across several countries.Results
Dalberg's due diligence resulted in the selection of five funds investing in a range of initiatives, from geothermal projects in Indonesia to a laser-based monitoring system for clean-coal-fired power plants in China. With Dalberg's help, the client was able to place $1.2 billion into clean and renewable energy investments in Asia.To learn more about our Energy and Environment practice area, click here.
A leading international agency was looking for innovative, non-traditional ways to address environmental and social issues in developing countries. The organization sought Dalberg's counsel on engaging private sector partners and resources to combat global warming.Dalberg Approach
