SUSI Partners has raised €252m of capital at the final close of its energy storage infrastructure fund.

The Swiss investment manager said SUSI Energy Storage Fund (SESF) received the capital commitments from institutional investors in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden and Switzerland at the end of May.

Launched in 2017, SESF invests OECD-wide in projects using different storage technologies, whereby technology risks are outsourced by long-term manufacturer guarantees.

The manager said SESF has already completed two investments worth around €90m, adding that it is currently working on four deals worth another €90m.

Marco van Daele, the CIO at SUSI Partners, said: “We see many interesting investment opportunities with an attractive risk/return profile in this new and fast-growing field.

“Energy storage is a key technology that enables the systemic integration of renewable energy producers and thus contributes significantly to the global CO2 reduction goals.”
