Global Infrastructure Need Driven by Power Investments, with Emerging Markets to Dominate Growth.
Through 2030, McKinsey Global Institute estimates that $49 trillion of projected infrastructure investment is needed globally, of which nearly 18% ($8.6 trillion) will be in non-OECD (developing economy) power investments, driven by a fundamental need for new power generation. Developing economies have already surpassed OECD countries in power generation and are expected to be the center of growth in the industry. Denham partners with experienced management teams to bring affordable renewable and gas-fired electricity generation to these economies, under well-structured long-dated power purchase agreements.

Denham Capital recognizes that its role as an investor affords it the opportunity to promote responsible environmental stewardship and socially responsible development, including fulfilling its responsibility to respect human rights. We recognize the importance of climate change, biodiversity, and human rights, and believe negative impacts on project-affected ecosystems, communities, and the climate should be avoided. If these impacts are unavoidable they should be evaluated in a thoughtful manner with the goal to minimize, mitigate, and/or offset. Denham Capital seeks to ensure that the companies and projects we finance are developed in a manner consistent with the foregoing and that is socially responsible and reflects sound environmental management practices.
