Sweden

Commitments from two Swedish investors have brought the fund’s value to just under €300m, with an additional €90m from the EIB expected imminently.
The new infra team, led by managing director Anna Sundell, numbers three but is expected to grow to five by the end of the year.

The objective is to build eNordic into a €3bn holding with a generation capacity of 1.6GW over the next five years.  
In a world where financial investors are hungry for GP minority stakes, why would a firm pursue a public listing?

Polhem Infra’s backers believe it will have a competitive advantage by investing to hold rather than to sell.
Wind power
Similar in strategy to US platform Sky Renewables, the €300m investment aims to build a portfolio focused on wind, solar, hydro and biomass.
Nordic manager CapMan is leading the acquisition from Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, which invested in the project in July.
Jonas Nyquist, most recently head of private equity and infrastructure at the Swedish life insurer, will head a team at the oil and gas giant's fund management subsidiary.
The group, which was an underbidder in EQT’s 2015 sale, has now succeeded in acquiring the transmission system operator, its second Swedish gas investment since March.
The group targets earlier-stage projects after selling Europe’s largest onshore wind farm and ploughing €270 million into a new 235MW site in the same country.
