Mainstream Renewable Power has secured €90 million (US$101.6 million) in equity funding to support the build-out of a multi-gigawatt pipeline across Latin America, Africa and the Asia Pacific region.

The raise will help accelerate growth and support its ambitions of “becoming a global renewable energy major”, Mainstream said. The company has recently won a preferred bidder status for 1.27GW worth of projects in South Africa and launched a 1GW Nazca Renovables platform in Chile.
