Renewable Energy Infrastructure

Australia’s electricity market is undergoing a structural transition away from aging fossil fuel generators towards cleaner energy production.

Sentient Impact Group manages six renewable energy facilities in Victoria, Western Australia, the ACT and Queensland, structured under the Solar Income Fund and the Solar Asset Fund.

Our renewables business provides wholesale investors the opportunity to invest in the high-quality infrastructure that is part of Australia’s long term transition to a renewable energy system.

The management team and our funds’ directors comprise some of Australia’s most experienced leaders in the renewable industry.

Solar Asset Fund: launched in mid 2018 the Fund owns three large-scale solar farms built to meet the market’s demand for new generation infrastructure. This $120m fund targets a 10% IRR (pre-tax, post-fees) over the term of the Fund with an 8% target yield over the first 5 years. The solar assets in this Fund are exposed to wholesale market prices.

Solar Income Fund: commenced in 2016, the Fund owns three utility scale Solar farms with long term offtake agreements, delivering stable returns over the longer term. This $60m fund targets a ~10% IRR (pre-tax and post fees) over the term of the Fund
