Independent panel of industry experts recognizes multiple US investments as showcasing the firm’s record of innovation in North American energy infrastructure
HOUSTON – June 30, 2021 – Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners (“Quinbrook”), a specialist investor in low carbon and renewable energy supply, storage and grid stability infrastructure assets and businesses, is proud to announce that is has been named IJGlobal’s 2020 North American Investor of the Year.
The IJGlobal Awards recognize key players in the infrastructure industry who are deemed to be moving the market forward. Award winners were chosen by a panel of 14 independent industry experts, who determined which deals, initiatives and decisions that closed in 2020 had the greatest impact within the infrastructure and energy sector. Quinbrook received this award for three of its innovative investments in North America – “Rowan,” “Gemini” and “Scout Clean Energy.” These investments encompass projects targeting decarbonization of hyperscale data centers, large scale solar coupled with battery storage, and one of the fastest growing onshore wind platforms in the US.
Whilst Quinbrook is a relatively new firm, both our team and our portfolio company management teams host a diverse collective of power industry veterans that have cumulatively been investing in power and renewables for over three decades. Aided by a highly talented and passionate group of investment professionals, I am pleased that our efforts on behalf of our investors have been recognized in this way. The drive to Net Zero, and the energy transition now underway, calls for the deployment of vast sums of capital combined with hard work and ingenuity in decarbonizing not only our energy systems, but our entire industrial complex.David Scaysbrook
Co-Founder and Managing Partner
“We hope that this industry acknowledgement of our investments, along with the many laudable achievements of our peers and colleagues engaged in responsible investing, serve as exemplars for institutions to accelerate their capital allocations to new infrastructure creation delivering both urgent and impactful progress to reducing carbon emissions the world over.”
