AP Ventures closes Fund II with Temasek joining as Limited Partner
London, United Kingdom, 24 June 2021: AP Ventures today announces the closing of Fund II with the admission of Temasek as the 12th Limited Partner.
AP Ventures’ investment strategy is focused on companies developing technologies which are capable of sustainably solving global challenges such as renewable energy integration and resource scarcity. A key area of focus is the decarbonisation of transport and heavy industry. Through fuel cells, green hydrogen enables zero emission mobility while the use of hydrogen for heat can enable the decarbonisation of industries such as steel and cement manufacturing presently reliant on hydrocarbon fuels.
In welcoming Temasek, AP Ventures and its portfolio companies look forward to benefitting from working with a global investor with a strong ESG mandate and a focus on developing the hydrogen economy.
“We are pleased to announce the closing of Fund II. Our second fund builds on the extensive experience we have gained since 2013 when we started investing across the hydrogen economy. Our portfolio of hydrogen technology companies has grown rapidly in the last few years and we look forward to working with our investors to support further development and large scale deployment of these technologies.”
“We are delighted to welcome Temasek as an investor in Fund II. The development of the hydrogen economy continues to gain momentum and we are excited to have the opportunity to work in partnership with a highly regarded global investor. Temasek’s focus on this area will further allow AP Ventures to provide its portfolio companies with a unique combination of investment and development opportunities.”
