Panel: Driving growth – Private equity versus infrastructure funds

As Spain looks towards fostering sustainable growth and economic resilience, the spotlight shines brightly on its infrastructure landscape. With 228 deals closed in 2023 worth $32bn, Spain has seen steady deal volumes and values since 2021’s record year, which set the highest deal value of the past 5 years of $52.7bn. The renewables sector recorded the highest value of deals with more activity expected in 2024 and high profile-deals coming to the market, such as Brookfield’s potential sale of its renewable assets portfolio held in Iberia through its Spanish renewables subsidiary, Saeta Yield. The year 2024 marks a pivotal moment for strategic decisions and innovative approaches that are helping to shape the nation’s future connectivity, sustainability and competitiveness. Panellists will discuss:  

  • How can Spain capitalise on the momentum of its renewable energy sector to further drive sustainable growth in 2024 and beyond? 
  • Which other sub sectors of infrastructure are gaining momentum? Specifically, water management and treatment, waste management, gigafactories and battery recycling. 
  • With high-profile deals like Brookfield’s potential sale of its renewable assets portfolio in Spain, what implications does this have for the Spanish renewable energy landscape? How can such transactions impact Spain’s position as a leader in renewable energy investment and innovation? 
  • What are the challenges and opportunities might present themselves to dealmakers as Spain navigates its transition to renewable energy and connectivity in 2024? How will this impact sectors reliant on supply chain resilience such as logistics and transportation; agriculture and food and biotechnology?
