CPP Investments Invests US$200 Million in Redaptive
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.
