Reuters exclusively reveals British wind project draws investment heavyweights

Reuters exclusively revealed that British offshore wind project Triton Knoll has attracted the interest of several large investment funds, in a sign of the growing competition for assets in the fast-changing sector. German energy group Innogy, owner and developer of the planned 2-billion-pound ($2.8 billion) farm off the coast of eastern England, is looking for partners to get it off the ground. The project has drawn interest from a number of infrastructure and pension funds, including Australia’s Macquarie, Switzerland’s Partners Group and Denmark’s PFA Pension.
