Dubai Investment Fund (DIF), a management organisation for investments, has announced plans to invest in five renewable energy projects spread out throughout Europe and Australia. The $320 billion corporation will direct its spending towards two solar power projects for regional towns in Australia. The solar installations are anticipated to produce about 300MW of energy in their initial stages.
The DIF will also invest in two energy projects in Europe: a wind farm in Germany and a solar farm in Spain, both of which are anticipated to have capacities greater than 125MW. Along with the other wind and solar power projects, the business will also spend money on a 100MW energy storage facility.
Head of Global Strategy and Investment Operations at DIF, Ryan Smith, commented thus: “Investing in emerging technologies that will improve people’s lives in the future and open the door to a safer and more sustainable environment is one of DIF’s basic beliefs. With that notion, the fund announced the investment into five projects, united by the common goal – creating renewable energy sources, which will improve the environmental conditions on a local level and solve the problem of energy shortages. The rising prices for fossil fuels is another reminder, of why it is important to support the research and implementation of alternative energy production methods.”
The most recent investments are a component of DIF’s long-term plan to promote “promising and innovative” research initiatives. According to a statement by the corporation, the projects will be able to expand and flourish independently due to the location and technological factors, improving the stability of any prospective revenues.
