  3. 3. Every aIm-backed project brings social benefits, from transferring know-how to local communities to more effective and responsible farming practices. Our community-oriented development strategies pioneer a distinctive context-based approach that optimizes sustainable energy production and original land usage by harmonizing these two factors. Our agrinergie program, for example, synergizes solar power production and the land’s original agricultural output by switching to higher-value crops that take advantage of greenhouses and the shadowing created by ground-mounted panels. We make money. and we make a difference. a longtime advocate of impact finance, aIm finances the development and construction of renewable energy infrastructure projects worldwide.

  4. 4. Our S ECTO r Renewable energy assets are long-term, low-risk projects that: • are frequently backed by government guarantees, supported by national regulation and incentives, and enjoy local community support • are real, tangible assets that generate secure recurrent cash flows • are underlined by long-term power purchase agreements signed with large industrial offtakers and utilities • have high residual value due to long-term lease agreements and power generation authorizations, making them comparable to concessions • utilize free and abundant resources like wind, sun and water, and are unburdened by exposure to commodity fluctuations and costly fuel logistics • benefit local communities because electricity production and consumption is, by nature, localized • have a strong potential for significant capital gains due to rapidly growing demand for electricity driven by increasing fossil fuel prices and population and economic growth • truly benefit from a portfolio effect as the more renewable energy assets one owns, the more each individual mW production facility is worth • are economically viable and present a real alternative to fossil fuels plants thanks to new technologies • are the only electricity alternatives in certain remote regions not connected to the national grid.According to the United Nations, renewable energy couldmeet 77% of the world electricity demand by 2050
