A DIF managed infrastructure fund is buying BluEarth Renewables from Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

DIF Infrastructure V has signed an agreement to acquire the Canadian renewable energy firm from the pension institution for an undisclosed sum.

Paul Huebener, partner and DIF’s head of Americas said: “We are excited to support BluEarth in its next phase of growth.

“The BluEarth team and its portfolio of stable renewable energy projects are a key addition in DIF’s continued expansion in North America.”
