Renewable energy company Enfinity Global has received a $164m (€151.5m) financing package from Macquarie Capital and a Shinhan Asset Management-led consortium to expand its solar projects in Japan.

Enfinity said the financing has been secured to support a 250MW solar portfolio. The Japanese portfolio, comprising seven operational utility-scale project and one project under construction, has an enterprise value of more than $1bn.

“Our collaboration underscores our commitment to supporting the growth of high-quality renewable energy projects in attractive markets,” a representative from Macquarie Capital said.

Carlos Domenech, CEO of Enfinity Global, said: “We are delighted to partner with Macquarie and Shinhan as we scale our platform in Japan. 

“Japan’s energy transition needs world class companies that invest in these high-quality long-lived assets and support emerging energy needs such as those driven by data centres”
