“As a leading investor in the energy transition, we are very pleased to be recognised by our industry peers and institutional investors around the world for this successful fund raise,” Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners co-founder and managing partner Rory Quinlan said.

“We are proud to have surpassed our fundraising target for our Renewables Impact Fund, demonstrating strong investor confidence in our holistic and value-add approach to sustainable infrastructure investment.

“This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Quinbrook team and their collective contributions made this award recognition possible,” Quinlan said.

QRIF, Quinbrook’s third managed fund, raised £620 million in investor commitments in 2023. QRIF offers investors access to a holistic and differentiated approach to the energy transition and was marketed exclusively to UK institutional investors, attracting numerous new investors to Quinbrook from across the country.

The portfolio features multiple long-term inflation linked contracts with investment grade counterparties such as National Grid and the UK Government, including the Pathfinder programme, the Contract for Difference regime, and the Capacity Market, as well as inflation linked power purchase agreements with leading UK companies, and is anchored by investment in one of the UK’s largest solar and battery storage projects.

The annual Infrastructure Investor Awards celebrate excellence in the infrastructure space globally and acknowledges leaders across an array of categories.
