Through the MOBILIST programme, the UK government provided £24.5 million (GBP) of seed capital to the Asian Energy Impact Trust, enabling it to list on the London Stock Exchange.
Asian Energy Impact Trust (formerly ThomasLloyd Energy Impact Trust) is the first company on the LSE to be dedicated to investing in sustainable energy infrastructure projects that can help alleviate Asia’s expanding climate change issues.
By helping to fulfil the urgent need for infrastructure finance in Asia, the Company is tackling the global climate crisis with action where it is most required and most efficient while also providing investors with access to private market opportunities which cannot be found via other listed equities.
AEIT is constructing and operating a portfolio of sustainable energy infrastructure assets and investing in construction-ready and operational assets across renewable power generation, transmission infrastructure, energy storage and sustainable fuel production in the countries where it is most needed.
In line with MOBILIST’s objectives, the company attracted a broad mix of institutional and retail investors to support its successful IPO.
