Financial and professional services firm Jones Lang LaSalle has recently launched a new Renewable Energy Capital team to help raise capital and provide commercial and financial advice for UK renewable energy project developers.

The team, which is part of the Jones Lang LaSalle Corporate Finance EMEA, has formed links to a number of investor groups who are currently seeking opportunities in the renewables sector.

Headed up by Andreas Quint, the Renewable Energy Capital team will deliver bespoke offerings to equity, debt, mergers and acquisitions and renewable energy markets.

Dane Wilkins, Head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Renewable Energy Capital team, said: “The renewable energy sector will continue to enjoy strong growth over the next few years, with new investors and players’ entering the market from real estate as capital seeks alternatives homes with similar risk/return profiles.”

Andrew Gould, Jones Lang LaSalle’s UK Chief Executive, commented: “The UK Government has demonstrated its commitment to meeting the EU target and source 15 percent of energy from renewables by 2020. Our Renewable Energy Capital team highlights Jones Lang LaSalle’s commitment towards meeting this goal by providing our clients with market insight and trusted advice as they invest in this compelling and growing sector.”

Jones Lang LaSalle’s team operates across a range of renewable technologies including biomass, hydro/tidal, onshore and offshore wind and solar PV.
