“We are committed to the Indian renewable sector and will continue to be a leading investor in Indian green energy,” its Partner and Asia Head (Energy) Sanjiv Agarwal said.

The London-based firm announced the close of ‘Actis Energy 5’ on Thursday, which represents USD 6 billion of investable capital, including USD 4.7 billion of fund commitments plus co-investments opportunities, as per the statement.
