Our Philosophy

We believe that people can make a difference, and that by investing and supporting those who have a vision, anything is possible.

Aedificium Capital's current focus is the European market, primarily within the EU including a historical focus on South Eastern and Central Eastern Europe. Where we identify areas within segments or particular countries, that we consider are sound to invest in our specialist areas of energy and infrastructure. 

 

These areas of experience include Pumped-storage hydroelectricity (PSH),  Biomass Waste-to-energy, Geothermal and large scale battery energy storage, alongside Energy Trading. We use our regional knowledge to achieve long-term investment goals for our investments. 

 

Our management team co-invests alongside our equity partners, supporting our strategy as a long-term investor (+20 years) that builds on the platform of each investment to ensure future projects and fund pipeline. 

We create highly specialised and dedicated management teams for all new projects or investments, and provide these teams with the financial and technical support required to be successful. 

 

We invest in both green and brownfield projects, with an emphasis in energy transformation and storage projects that include brownfield sites (decommissioned power stations, oil refineries), where our investment can not only provide strong financial returns to our investors, but have a positive impact on the environment and local communities. 

Our energy investments are focused on solutions that counter the widening gap between real energy production and consumption.  With solutions that address the growing trend of synthetic/financial Guarantees of Origin (GO's) with the realtime matching of renewable generation with consumption.

Infrastructure

Our Infrastructure track record focuses on investing in, building, and scaling projects and companies in environmental infrastructure and renewable energy. Focus areas include electric vehicle charging infrastructure, waste-to-energy, energy efficiency, and distributed large-scale energy, primarily in Europe and the UK

Technology

Our Technology investments help commercially proven, technology-enabled companies to accelerate their growth, increase market share, and create value while delivering scalable environmental and social impact in the process. Focus areas include cleantech, mobility solutions, and impact-oriented fintech in Europe.

Energy Transition 

We passionately believe that Wind + Solar are the future of renewable energy within the EU. Our current development focus is expanding renewable energy through the use of large scale grid connected storage, enabling true carbon free energy. 

Widespread electrification of transportation means that power demand becomes increasingly mobile and supply must be able to meet this demand. As a result energy and utility companies’ business models will change from being bulk asset and supply based, to being able to provide a more individual service with network-based solutions more tuned to customers’ shifting demands.

Energy markets, especially in the retail energy sector, will become far more competitive, even without the adaptation of traditional, regulated constructs. Increasingly AI and the communications infrastructure will transform smart grids into autonomous and self-healing networks that integrate stored, clean, intelligent, mobile, and distributed energy while enhancing safety, reliability, and affordability. Network orchestrators, energy service providers, and prosumers will emerge as active stakeholders, further pushing the grid’s value to the edge of its capacity.

According to the Paris Agreement, staying within boundaries for climate change requires the average rise in global temperatures to stay below 2°C or even 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels and has set the ambitious target of 15g CO2 eq per KWh for electricity production. 

 

This ambitious climate goal necessitates scaled-up, real-world implementation across the global economy. Transforming the energy and transportation systems, which currently account for nearly half of global emissions (with buildings and industrial processes accounting for another quarter), are critical to meeting these goals. Successful implementation requires balancing the process of deep decarbonisation within energy, transportation and buildings markets with energy’s essential role of fuelling economic growth.

As the energy sector undergoes the transition to low carbon energy, new technologies and processes will present emerging opportunities and challenges for supply and demand. For example, decarbonisation requires not only reduced investment in fossil fuel generation but also additional investment in emerging clean technologies including storage. According to Bloomberg, zero carbon power generation will attract nearly $9 trillion in investment through to 2040. At this scale of investment, significant ripple effects will be felt across the grid.

The increasing convergence among stakeholders to decarbonise the energy generation system indicates that there will be sustained investment in decarbonisation initiatives.

We work with governments, developers, investors, energy aggregators, utilities, industrial and commercial entities, TSO's, assets owners and service providers to invest in intelligent energy storage solutions of all sizes
