Aquila European Renewables Income Fund plc ("AERIF" or the "Company") is a London-listed renewable energy infrastructure investment company with the aim to provide investors with an attractive long-term, income-based return in EUR through a diversified portfolio of hydropower, wind and solar PV investments across continental Europe and Ireland. Through the diversification of generation technologies, the seasonal production patterns of these asset types complement each other to balance the cash flow, while the geographic diversification serves to reduce exposure to one single energy market. AERIF is targeting a minimum of 4.0 cents per ordinary share in relation to the financial year ending 31 December 2020 and 5.0 cents per ordinary share in respect of subsequent financial years, with the aim of increasing this dividend progressively over the medium term.
