With $19 million in fresh funding, Netherlands-based GreenPeak Technologies is ready to go. The company completed its Series B venture capital financing round, which was led by European investor Gimv and Robert Bosch Venture Capital. DFJ Esprit, Motorola Ventures and Allegro Investment Fund also participated.
Olympus Capital picked up the last of the money it needed to close its Asia Environmental Partners fund. The group received a $25 million commitment from the IFC, a member of the World Bank Group. The fund invests in Asian renewable energy companies.
GreenHunter Energy picked up its stake in the Chinese manufacturer of industrial-scale wind turbines back in late 2007. It seems pretty safe to infer that the company made the move back then because the U.S. equivalent wasn’t far enough along. Now, says CEO Gary Evans, the U.S. wind turbine biz is far enough along, making it preferable to owning a piece of a Chinese company.
