IJGlobal's ESG Infrastructure Deal of the Year awarded to Zenobē Energy - Hogan Lovells acted for Infracapital

London, 5 November 2021 – Hogan Lovells is delighted to announce that a matter it has advised on was recognised in a winning category at the IJGlobal ESG Awards. An independent panel of judges singled out Project Blaise – Zenobē Energy – as the winner for the Infrastructure Deal of the Year, celebrating the transaction’s achievements on a number of levels.

Project Blaise saw Zenobē Energy close its landmark £150 million (US$204.5m) equity raise from Infracapital, allowing Zenobē to accelerate investment into battery storage and much-needed fleet electrification, in line with its purpose to enable business transition to clean power and transport systems.

Hogan Lovells advised Infracapital on the transaction, with a team led by London partners Philip Brown and Alex Harrison. 

Commenting on what the project will achieve, a judge said: “Zenobē Energy's landmark £150 million equity raise from Infracapital, allowing Zenobē to further accelerate investment into battery storage and much-needed fleet electrification, in line with its purpose to enable businesses' transition to clean power and transport systems.”

Another judge at the Awards said: “This is an innovative energy and urban transition deal, still unproven as an infrastructure asset class but one where brave steps like these are essential for progress to be achieved in the decarbonisation pathway.”

The winners were announced this week at a live awards ceremony held at BAFTA in London. The IJGlobal Awards launched this year celebrated “champions in infrastructure and energy finance” with a strong focus on Environmental, Social and Governance issues.
