Our Story

Our first investment vehicle, Alcazar Energy Partners – I (AEP-I), was established in 2014 by a highly qualified group of professionals with in-depth knowledge in renewable energy from an investment, project finance and technical perspective.

By 2018, AEP-I had created the largest independent renewable energy project portfolio in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region at the time. This included Five solar photovoltaic (PV) and two onshore wind projects across Jordan and Egypt and a total generation capacity of 411 MW.

In 2021, Alcazar Energy concluded a successful exit of its portfolio in AEP-I through an auction, which received strong market interest from a highly diversified group of bidders. The exit culminated in a landmark acquisition led by China Three Gorges, in consortium with two Chinese sovereign investment funds, enabling the entry of a leading global energy investor into the MENA region.

After the successful exit of Alcazar Energy Partners-I (AEP-I), Alcazar Energy launched its second vehicle, Alcazar Energy Partners II SLP (SCSp) (AEP-II), a Luxemburg domiciled sustainable infrastructure fund. AEP-II was established with a vision to drive continued economic, environmental, and social impact through diligently vetted, optimised and bankable renewable energy projects across selected emerging markets.
