Investment Strategy

Administrator

Kensington looks to leverage its network across North America to originate and acquire high quality, long term, operating power infrastructure businesses across hydro, heat recovery, natural gas, geothermal and energy storage solar as well as transmission lines and power distribution infrastructure.

Opportunity and scale

Administrator

Kensington seeks to originate and participate in opportunities that would be smaller than the threshold enterprise value of a typical institutional investor. In eliminating competition from institutional investors Kensington is able to access quality power infrastructure assets at a lower cost, enhancing yields for our investors.

Partnership pipeline platform

Administrator

Kensington seeks to develop partnerships with power infrastructure developers as a means to develop exclusive pipeline opportunities for investment by our funds once the assets are commissioned. We believe that working in partnership with developers creates a strong alignment of interest and generates quality investment opportunities.

Technical expertise

Administrator

One of Kensington’s first power investments is a waste heat plant located in Crowsnest Pass, British Columbia which is wholly owned and operated by our funds. Kensington has uniquely developed operating, engineering and technical expertise in the day to day management of physical power assets.
