Infrastructure, a new asset class for the long term


Infrastructure is a new asset-class for the long-term. Despite challenges, this asset-class has emerged from the COVID-19 crisis in pretty good shape. We, at Amundi Energy Transition, have been offering solutions to investors since 2016 and our ambition for 2022 is to find firms that can support us in the energy transition sector.

Our investment Strategy


Amundi Energy Transition (AET), the investment Fund dedicated to green infrastructures from the European leader in asset management.

Founded in 2016, AET is an innovative player which encourages energy transition.

AET invests in diversified energy transition assets, including:

  • renewable energy production infrastructures (wind, solar, hydraulics, biogas, …)
  • distribution and energy efficiency infrastructures (heating networks, cogeneration, storage and frequency regulation, …)
  • consumption infrastructures (electric mobility, energy retrofitting, smart metering, … )

AET manages more than 350 assets with a total installed capacity of 1.8 GW, including cogeneration units, wind farms and solar power plants, and an investment capacity of around €2bn2.

Thanks to its partnerships with French and international energy project developers and major utilities such as Dalkia, Urbasolar, Sonnedix and Luminus, AET benefits from solid industrial know-how and financial expertise in the risks associated with energy projects.

AET has strong expertise in developing innovating legal structures. These structures enable stakeholders to maintain their natural contacts (operating companies, management companies, etc.) as well as their operational independence.

Our current offer


AET – an innovative player offering green infrastructure investment solutions to clients wishing to maximise their returns.

AET’s institutional funds are offered to French and international Tier 1 and Tier 2 clients wishing to maximise their returns. These are long-term investments (25 years) in physical assets associated with renewable energy generation (wind, solar, etc.) and energy efficiency (district heating networks, cogeneration, to name a few). These investments focus on yield: annual distributions over an extended holding period in order to achieve an attractive IRR.

Over the past 4 years, AET has invested in various sectors of the renewable sector, including biomass, solar power and onshore wind, and concluded partnership agreements with leading industrial partners.

After only four years of operations, AET has demonstrated its ability to meet its commitments to investors by offering them the opportunity to participate in energy transition through projects with stable returns over time.

Investments in biomass, solar power and onshore wind include:

Energy-efficient cogeneration and heat production from biomass represent more than 190 installations, with a total installed capacity of more than 550 MW. AET benefits from Dalkia's technical expertise on these heat production assets.
