“We are delighted to make our first venture in Thailand, one of the early movers for renewables in the region,” said Valerie Speth, APAC Co-Head of Climate Infrastructure, BlackRock. 

“We look forward to supporting Chow Energy’s business expansion, as well as continuing to scale our CFP platform to mobilize capital into climate-related investments in emerging markets that require it most, with the goal of expediting the transition to a low carbon economy,” Speth added.

This will also contribute to Thailand’s goal to achieve 30% renewable capacity by 2037.
