Energy Capital launches $3b energy fund
Energy Capital Partners has launched a third fund, Energy Capital Partners III, with a $3.4 billion fundraising goal, according to a filing with the SEC.
The fund follows the firm’s second energy fund, Energy Capital Partners II, which closed in 2010 with $4.34 billion, surpassing its $4.25 billion goal. Energy Capital Partners II primarily invests in assets in the fossil and renewable power generation, electric transmission and midstream gas sectors. Its portfolio consists of three natural gas–fired power generating facilities in New England; a 100-mile gas gathering pipeline system in the Barnett Shale region in Texas; an electric transmission line under development in Southern California; and an operating business providing electrical infrastructure construction and maintenance services.
