HOUSTON, May 8, 2024-- EnCap Energy Transition (EnCap) today announced it has successfully closed EnCap Energy Transition Fund II (EETF II) with commitments of approximately $1.5 billion. EnCap’s second energy transition fund was created to invest in solutions to decarbonize the power industry, while also opportunistically investing in low carbon fuels and carbon management.

“The EnCap Energy Transition team is proud to have raised a sizeable pool of capital to continue to invest in the opportunity created by the shift to a lower-carbon energy system. We greatly appreciate the strong support from our existing investor base and are pleased to have added a number of new, high-quality investors, both domestically and internationally,” said EnCap Energy Transition Managing Partner, Jim Hughes. “Since our inception in 2019, we now manage approximately $2.7 billion of capital commitments to invest in decarbonization and are excited for the opportunities ahead of us.”

EnCap Managing Partner Jason DeLorenzo said “We are pleased EnCap has closed our second Energy Transition Fund and are proud as an organization to continue the tremendous success of the platform established in 2019. We continue to believe all sources of energy are needed to support the world’s growing energy needs and that our Energy Transition Team will build off the significant success achieved to date.”

EnCap has already made investment commitments to five portfolio companies through EETF II including Linea Energy, Parliament Solar, PowerTransitions, Arbor Renewable Gas, and Bildmore Renewables. EnCap also has a robust pipeline of other potential investment opportunities pursuing strategies in renewables, energy storage, clean fuels, and carbon solutions and expects to have 8-10 portfolio companies in EETF II in total.
