This platform operates a substantial 60MW portfolio comprising thirty-five biogas plants and ten biomethane plants located in the northeast of Germany.

The acquisition further bolsters Partners Group’s Private Infrastructure business, increasing its assets under management to a remarkable USD 21 billion.

While financial details remain undisclosed, the investor has already announced plans to rebrand the operation and implement strategic initiatives that encompass constructing a project pipeline, developing innovative ancillary service lines, and reinforcing its contract management capabilities.

Beyond the undisclosed financial aspects, the acquisition offers numerous compelling advantages.

Firstly, the biogas and biomethane production aligns perfectly with Europe’s push for clean energy and recycling targets, earning significant regulatory support as part of the broader decarbonization objectives.

The acquisition positions Partners Group’s energy platform advantageously with high barriers to entry, bolstered by its substantial asset base and robust infrastructure.

These factors harden the possibilities for potential competitors to enter the market.

Furthermore, the acquired platform benefits from a host of long-term contracts, providing visible cash flow and strengthening its position for continued growth.

According to Kevin Gilhawley, Member of Management, Private Infrastructure Europe, the demand for these environmentally friendly energy products, such as biomethane as an alternative fuel, exhibits robust growth potential.

Investors have responded positively to the acquisition, reflected in the substantial rise of Partners Group’s share by several percentage points in the SMI, along with a double-digit price increase in 2023.

This successful transaction serves as a solid foundation for Partners Group to capitalize on favorable market conditions and contribute significantly to the advancement of sustainable energy solutions in Europe.
