Calvin Capital is an asset investment company with £2.1bn assets under commitment. We specialise in the development and implementation of innovative funding solutions for our customers.
Our core focus is investing in utility infrastructure assets. We contract with our customers to fund the procurement and installation of the assets they require. They then utilise the assets and pay Calvin, over the long term, for their use. The deals are typically structured in a way which ensures that the associated capital expenditure remains off each customer’s balance sheet. Calvin also utilises its experience and capability in structured finance to establish efficient capital structures which optimise funding costs and financial risk, resulting in very competitive pricing.
We adopt a holistic approach to asset management in line with each customer’s requirements. This includes asset procurement, logistics, installation services, asset tracking, commercial management and transaction management.
Calvin is currently supporting a number of the UK’s largest energy suppliers in fulfilling their smart meter obligations through providing competitive and flexible funding for the procurement and installation of smart meters in their customers’ homes.
To date we have committed to the funding of 16 million meters on behalf of UK energy suppliers
When faced with the need to undertake large scale metering programmes, energy suppliers have called upon Calvin Capital for assistance – we are a leading funder, owner and manager of gas and electricity meters across the country and our focus is in supporting UK energy suppliers. This support is set to continue and indeed increase as we win new funding contracts with energy suppliers working to roll out smart meters to all their customers.
BEIS estimated that around £110bn of new investment would be required in energy infrastructure by 2020 alone
