Energy Efficiency with SDCL/SEEIT
Sustainable Development Capital (SDCL) has been around since 2007, always focused on the energy efficiency space and decentralised projects, with a pretty wide geographical remit active in Europe, the UK, NA and Asia).
Over the years, energy efficiency as a concept has kind of become more mainstream and visible, and in 2018 SDCL went public with an energy efficiency vehicle in London, SEEIT.
Its investments since listing have included all manner of energy efficiency assets – decentralised solar, CHP, LED lighting, onsite utility services, and more, all backed by long-term contracts.
Maritina and Fernando sit down with founder and CEO Jonathan Maxwell to talk about how far SEEIT has come since listing, how investors' attitudes towards the asset class has changed, and importantly, how the definition of EE has evolved over time and what that means for the investment proposition.
