Bluefield advises funds and companies on investment into large-scale solar energy infrastructure, principally in the UK. It has led on the acquisitions of, and currently advises on, over 50 assets ranging from utility-scale, agriculturally-situated plants to industrially-situated plants, where the energy is consumed onsite. Industrial customers include Toyota Manufacturing and Thames Water.

The objective is to deliver stable, growing yields over the life of the asset.

Bluefield’s acquisition strategy is based upon close collaboration with a select group of solar energy construction and manufacturing specialists, with whom Bluefield has established relationships.
