    August 1, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      August 1 (Renewables Now) - UK railways pension scheme Railpen and the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) have jointly bought a 94% stake in UK battery energy storage platform Constantine Energy Storage, the buyers said on Friday without disclosing the size of their investment.

      England-based CES has plans to invest GBP 400 million (USD 480.5m/EUR 469.4m) to build out a pipeline of grid-scale battery energy storage projects across the UK, which are currently being developed by Constantine Group’s subsidiary Pelagic Energy Developments. No specific details about the projects were available.

      “The acquisition of CES is an ideal fit for our growing global portfolio of high-quality infrastructure assets,” said Ben Hawkins, Head of Infrastructure, Renewables and Sustainable Investing at AIMCo. For Railpen, meanwhile, the deal is the first direct investment into battery storage and aligns with the company’s commitment to invest in innovative assets, commented, Lewis Vanstone, its investment director.

      (GBP 1.0 = USD 1.201/EUR 1.174)
