Episode 23 – Energy & Infrastructure: Renewables Driving Change in the Investment Landscape

Macro market shifts as part of the energy transition are spurring investors, sponsors, and even traditional oil and gas producers to move in new directions. There is an increase in wind and solar projects being funded, with private equity demonstrating a parallel interest in renewables. Given the intermittent nature of these energy sources, developers and investors are also increasingly interested in energy storage, specifically battery technologies. However, the sector may remain dependent on government tax incentives in the US and EU. Shifts from combustion engines to electric engines are also likely to attract capital, while carbon capture and renewable hydrogen projects may provide opportunities for oil and gas producers.

In this episode of Connected With Latham, the first in our Energy & Infrastructure series, we assemble a cross-disciplinary group of Latham partners to explore different aspects of the transition to a low-carbon economy. Lauren Anderson, a private equity partner in Houston, speaks with London project finance partner Matthew Brown, San Diego project finance partner Omar Nazif, and London project finance partner Chirag Sanghrajka.
