ARCLIGHT LAUNCHES INFINIGEN RENEWABLES PLATFORM
BOSTON, Dec. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ArcLight Capital Partners, LLC (“ArcLight”) announced today that it has launched its Infinigen Renewables platform (“Infinigen”) with a $400 million capital commitment. Infinigen is led by a team with a history of successful development and operations of premier renewable assets.

ArcLight looks forward to supporting Infinigen’s mission to provide affordable, renewable electricity to the communities in which it operates. Over its 20-year history, ArcLight has invested over $4 billion in 5 GW of renewable assets, and this transaction is testament to our continued commitment to enabling decarbonization and sustainability.”
