Investing in the most attractive European energy markets, Aravis Energy focuses in particular on companies that produce renewable energy from wind, solar and water. Aravis has a proactive and hands-on approach in order to secure the most attractive investment opportunities. The investments produce more than 300,000,000 kWh of electricity out of renewable energy sources, a quantity enough to supply 120,000 households and to contribute to savings of 350,000 tons of CO2 per year.
The renewable energy sector benefits from rising energy prices, low marginal costs of production, and environmental concerns, which caused political decisions to shut down nuclear and thermal power plants. Companies active in the sector have long-term agreements to sell their energy production. These agreements can be established either through private power purchase agreements or through fixed governmental feed-in tariffs for up to 20 years. For an investor the investment in such companies represents an active diversification from the financial markets as the company cash flows are largely uncorrelated with stock exchange returns. The cash flows mainly depend on the natural resources such as wind, sun or water and are independent of any other external market pressures. The long-term predictions of these natural resources are quite accurate and reliable.
