July 2020
Rotterdam – the Netherlands

Lakeside Capital Partners is active in the financing of renewable energy projects. To enhance investments in this sector, management decided to first concentrate on solar PV projects in Western European markets. In order to solidify this endeavour, Lakeside Capital Partners structured a joint venture with Switch Energy, a Rotterdam based solar development and engineering group. Alongside the latter, other strategic partnerships have been established with renowned institutions.

The first 40 MW own development solar PV projects have received SDE+ grants by Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs (RVO) on July 16th 2020. The construction and connection to the Dutch grid network is planned in the course of 2021. Lakeside Capital Partners acts as financial sponsor and asset manager, whereas Switch Energy is responsible for engineering, construction management and maintenance.
