SDCL’s energy efficiency project investment funds

SDCL’s investment business is focused on clean energy and energy efficiency project finance. SDCL has established specialist funds in the UK, Ireland and Singapore and is launching new funds in New York and China. SDCL’s funds in each country are in partnership with governments as an investor, promoter or guarantor. The funds invest in energy efficiency retrofit projects and seek a return based on savings achieved. This generates ongoing operational cost savings and carbon emission reductions as well as improvements to productivity and asset values, in compliance with current and prospective building regulations.
