Toronto, CANADA and San Francisco, CA (December 19, 2022): Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) announced today that it has invested approximately US$200 million in Redaptive, a leading Energy-as-a-Service provider. Redaptive funds and installs energy-saving and energy-generating equipment to help organizations reduce energy waste, save money, lower their carbon emissions, and meet their sustainability goals. Certain existing investors, including Linse Capital and CBRE, will also be participating in the investment. Redaptive is expecting to announce a second close in early 2023.

Redaptive provides enterprise customers with data-driven energy generation and efficiency programs including HVAC, LED lighting, solar, EV and other utility upgrades that can be deployed at large sites or across distributed real estate portfolios. Redaptive funds the upfront costs, allowing customers to overcome the financial and logistical barriers to investing in energy efficiency and sustainability.

Redaptive has experienced significant growth since its formation, including expected bookings of over 100% year-over-year in 2022. The company is well positioned to continue capturing share in the expanding Energy-as-a-Service market, through its innovative, turnkey sustainability solution to large companies globally. According to recent research1, the Energy-as-a-Service market in North America is forecasted to grow at a 30% CAGR between 2022 and 2030, from US$4.8 billion to US$38.5 billion.

“This funding gives Redaptive the capability to accelerate our growth and help more customers reach and exceed their energy efficiency and sustainability goals. In CPP Investments, we have found a partner who understands our mission and shares our passion for making carbon reduction an attainable goal for organizations around the world,” said Redaptive CEO Arvin Vohra.

By offering a suite of services, including energy efficiency upgrades, renewable energy integration, and demand response programs, EaaS firms help businesses optimize their energy usage, reduce costs, and minimize their environmental footprint.

Partners ?

One of the key advantages of partnering with an EaaS firm is the flexibility it offers.

This allows companies to focus on their core operations while benefiting from the expertise and resources of the EaaS firm. Moreover, EaaS firms often utilize advanced technology and data analytics to optimize energy usage in real-time. By monitoring energy consumption patterns and identifying areas for improvement, these companies can help businesses achieve significant energy savings without sacrificing performance or comfort. In addition to cost savings, EaaS solutions also contribute to sustainability and environmental stewardship. By implementing energy-efficient technologies and transitioning to renewable energy sources, businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and support the transition to a clean energy future. Furthermore, EaaS firms offer scalability, making them suitable for businesses of all sizes and industries. Whether it's a small retail store looking to reduce its energy bills or a large manufacturing facility aiming to improve its sustainability practices, EaaS solutions can be tailored to meet specific needs and goals. Overall, energy as a service firms are driving innovation and transformation in the energy sector, empowering businesses to become more efficient, resilient, and sustainable in the face of evolving energy challenges. With their comprehensive services and commitment to excellence, EaaS firms are poised to shape the future of energy management and pave the way for a cleaner, more sustainable world.
