Power Fund III aims at investing in around 10 early-stage companies in Northern and Central Europe during 2012–2016. Power Fund I and II are fully invested and make only follow-on investments in their current target companies.
Our investments focus on renewable and distributed power generation and energy-saving technologies, especially in electrical and power electronic applications. Of particular interest to us are innovations in which different forms of energy are converted into electricity, such as wind and solar power, wave power and biomass. Also energy-saving applications, such as electric drive trains as well as smart grids, Cleantech related IT and new processing technologies are in our focus.
The initial target investment in an investee company is decided upon case by case, but is normally between €0.5 and 5 million. The fund’s ownership of shares in any investee company normally does not represent a majority of the total equity.
