Our activities

Absolute Energy Capital (AEC) is an independent investment platform
resulting from the spin-out of the former Principal Investments
Renewable Energy team at Deutsche Bank.

The firm commenced operations in June 2009 acting as exclusive advisor to Deutsche Bank in relation to the alternative energy portfolio of investments that the Team has invested in since 2006. AEC can count on a unique access to various markets where it is active from the development phase (with a hands-on approach to permitting), through to the structuring, construction and operations of a Project.

AEC has a diversified and agnostic approach to technologies, with significant experience in Wind, Solar CSP, Biomass, Hydro and a specific focus on Solar PV.
The Team combines strong track record and prior expertise gained in best-in-class companies across energy and financial services.
