Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) to participate in Clean H2 Infra Fund
The Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) signed an agreement for equity participation in France’s Clean H2 Infra Fund SLP.
The Fund is targeting € 1,500 million, toward which JBIC plans to invest up to €100 million. The Fund is managed by Hy24, which is an equally owned joint venture by FiveT Hydrogen AG, an investment manager specialising purely in clean hydrogen investments, and Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, via its infrastructure activity.
The Fund will invest in clean hydrogen-related projects around the world, from upstream projects like green hydrogen production to downstream projects like captive fleet and refuelling stations. JBIC participates in the Fund under its GREEN operations.
Pierre-Etienne Franc, CEO of Hy24 said, “Hy24’s investment strategy is to deploy capital into clean hydrogen-based projects, particularly in the most advanced regions in the world.”
