About Inspired Evolution and Evolution Funds
Established in 2007, Inspired Evolution is a specialised climate finance private equity firm dedicated to three investment themes: clean energy infrastructure; energy access; and resource efficiency. Inspired Evolution offers a broad African footprint with headquarters in Cape Town and strategically located international, regional and country offices in London, Nairobi, Abidjan and Grand Bay in Mauritius.
Inspired Evolution and its suite of Evolution funds provide investors with long-term capital growth and yield by taking significant minority and controlling equity and equity-related stakes, predominantly in proven businesses and investment platforms that evidence strong growth strategies, backed by seasoned professional management teams.
Over the past 16 years, Inspired Evolution has been involved in financing the development and operations of more than 2+ GW of renewable energy infrastructure generation projects and multiple growth equity investments across Africa. Our latest Evolution III Fund targets next-generation energy transition investment strategies in large utility-scale, grid-connected renewable energy IPP platforms and projects, decentralised commercial and industrial (C&I) private offtake opportunities, off-grid solutions and energy-as-a-service (EaaS) micro-grid opportunities. It will also invest growth equity in energy and resource-efficiency technology-based businesses that ‘do more with less’ and reduce resource footprints.
