Origo Partners and Ecofin have launched China Cleantech Partners - a $200m private equity fund which will invest in China's cleantech sectors.
CCP aims to provide its limited partners with above market returns from investments in privately-held Chinese cleantech companies, with a specific focus on alternative energy, environmental remediation, water, and energy storage and distribution.
CCP will invest either directly in target companies, or indirectly as a limited partner through the Origo Xinxiang Renewable Energy Fund.
Origo and Ecofin Water & Power Opportunities, a UK investment trust managed by Ecofin, have each made an initial commitment of $15m to CCP.
