Energy Infrastructure Partners acquired an 80% stake in the Nysäter project at a ready-to-build phase in late 2018. The stake was acquired from RWE Renewables (formerly E.ON), who was the original developer of Nysäter and now retains a 20% stake in the project.

The start of Nysäter’s commercial operations in 2022 emphasized the added value of Energy Infrastructure Partners as an energy-specialized investor. As the majority shareholder, we were able to structure unique contractual agreements and thus achieve unparalleled derisking of one the largest onshore wind farms in Europe. The operations of Nysäter benefit from a long-term service agreement with RWE Renewables, which ensures owner-aligned interests on the project.

While Energy Infrastructure Partners will maintain its long-term investment in the Nysäter project, we successfully completed a minority sell at the end of 2023. The onboarding of a new partner in the structure, next to RWE Renewables, reaffirmed the significance of this investment and showcased the added value we brought to the project with continuous de-risking since investing in 2018.
