- CF Pathways comprises CF Partners and Brook Green Supply
- The company achieved revenues of €2.5 billion in 2021
- CF Pathways has seen a rise in demand for its services as a result of the need for companies to mitigate their exposure to energy prices
CF Pathways will announce later Monday morning that it has secured an equity investment from private equity and infrastructure firm, Ara Partners. CF Pathways provides green energy and net-zero related services to over 5,000 large industrial customers across Europe and the UK. The company comprises CF Partners and Brook Green Supply and achieved €2.5 billion in revenues in 2021. It has seen demand for its services rising due to the energy crisis as companies try to manage and mitigate their exposure to energy prices.
Ara’s investment will support London-based CF’s development of its software and data capabilities and its growth of its energy transition product offering. The company designs, executes, and delivers comprehensive risk management services across a broad range of energy and sustainability markets for large, energy-intensive customers. The company supplies green power and gas to industrial customers via Brook Green Supply.
“As an innovation leader in developing and delivering market-based low carbon and set-zero solutions, CF Pathways ideally aligned with Ara’s industrial decarbonisation investment strategy,” said Christopher Picotte, a partner in Ara’s Dublin office. “We see massive potential for CF Pathways to add complementary value across our own portfolio of companies and for Ara to enable CF Pathways to enhance its capabilities, including the ability to deliver asset and investment-oriented solutions.”
Ara Partners is a private equity firm headquartered in Houston, Texas, which specialises in industrial decarbonisation investments. The deal follows on from Ara-backed Repeats Group’s addition of Polimero in September 2022, covered by PE Hub Europe.
