In 2014, Oikocredit established its renewable energy unit based in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. In close cooperation with its network of 63 countries around the globe, it actively identifies and develops investment opportunities in renewable and energy efficiency projects in low-income countries.
The renewable energy unit is in the process of building and managing a portfolio consisting of both debt and (project) equity investments. The portfolio will consist of investments in infrastructure projects that provide clean power to the electric grid. A typical investment size for these projects is $5 to $10 million.
