ICG, the global alternative asset manager, today announced a US $50m investment in Amp Energy India Private Ltd. (“Amp India” or “the Company”), a leading renewable energy platform, with the option to invest an additional US $50m. The transaction marks the first investment by ICG’s Asia-Pacific Infrastructure team located across Asia, focusing on mid-market transactions, corporate-led deals, and scaling platforms with a strong commitment to sustainable infrastructure.
The transaction will support Amp India’s growth plan, and ICG will work closely with the Company’s highly experienced management team to continue capitalizing on the growing demand for renewables in the region. Bolstered by strong government support and decarbonization commitments from large corporates, India’s renewables market is expected to add 145GW in the next five years.
Founded in 2016, Amp India is one of the fastest growing renewable developers in India with a 2.7GW portfolio at various stages and a pan-India presence of 150 employees across 16 states. The Company, backed by marquee investors at both the holding company and asset company levels, has a diversified strategy to cover both Commercial & Industrial projects, as well as Utility projects, adopting multiple technology solutions such as ground-mounted solar, wind/solar hybrid, floating solar, and rooftop solar.
