Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised Eren Renewable Energy on its fundraising of approximatively €200 million.
The transaction will enable the group to finance its development projects in a sustainable manner, in particular by accelerating the expansion of its international assets portfolio. A capital increase of €100 million, the first part of this fundraising, has been subscribed by BPI France, Next World, Salvepar (Tikehau Group) and FFP.

These are located primarily in France, Italy, Greece, Israel and India.
