With rising energy costs and the passage of the COP21 resolutions, business and real estate operators are hyper-focused on reducing energy costs in Asia. Combined with low cap rates and high PE multiples, this creates significant opportunity to create asset and enterprise value across the region.
Led by Doug Smith, GreenGen Asia is focused on working with local institutions, as well as foreign-owned local subsidiaries to use energy to create value, and the opportunities are numerous.
In recent years, the Japanese government (METI) has significantly increased energy related incentives to help promote energy efficiency across all commercial sectors. In addition, on April 1, 2016, the Japanese government deregulated electricity supply, creating an opportunity to create further savings.
In addition, governmental and financial pressures have increased the focus on energy related solutions across Asia, and in particular in its largest markets: China, Japan, and Korea.
