PAG launches PAG Renewables, a major new platform for renewable energy investment


TOKYO, JUL 6, 2022 - PAG, a leading APAC-focused alternative investment firm with more than USD50 billion of assets under management, today announced the launch of PAG Renewables, a wholly owned company with the mandate to develop, build, operate, and invest in renewable energy in Asia. PAG is expected to invest over USD1 billion through the platform over the next several years.

Additionally, PAG announced that funds managed by its Real Assets group had successfully closed the previously disclosed acquisition of the Japan-based project development platform of First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR). First Solar’s development and operations teams will join PAG’s Real Assets team of more than 150 across Asia to form the core of the PAG Renewables business. PAG Renewables will also operate and manage PAG’s existing renewables portfolio.

Combined with PAG’s existing renewables investment portfolio, the acquisition makes PAG Renewables one of Japan’s largest renewable energy platforms with 600+ MW DC of capacity.

J-P Toppino, President of PAG, said: “At PAG, sustainability is a core tenet of our investment philosophy and the transition to domestically-produced, clean energy in APAC will require an investment of trillions over the next decade. Investing in that transition is not only the right thing to do but a tremendous opportunity for PAG Renewables.”

James Buford, President and CEO of PAG Renewables, said, “With a dedicated focus on Asia and a track record of successfully investing more than USD70 billion since its inception, PAG’s deep regional expertise, network, and synergies with real assets business provides a tremendous platform for growth. We are excited to join PAG and announce the launch of PAG Renewables to support the critical expansion renewable energy in Asia.”
