History

FIEE is a private equity firm founded in 2014 with the aim of deploying institutional capital to European companies active in sectors related to the energy transition and decarbonization of the economy. At present FIEE manages over € 330 million through FIEE I and IEEF II, and is close to reaching the €370 million mark in 2021.

FIEE SGR S.p.A., authorized by the Bank of Italy for the exercise of investment services on 7 December 2015, is registered under no. 140 of the Register of Asset Management Companies, AIF managers section. FIEE operates as an asset management company pursuant to art. 35-undecies of the TUF.

FIEE offers exposure to investments in the real economy, specifically in the efficient and sustainable use of energy, aimed at contributing to the energy transition and decarbonization: energy efficiency, generation from renewables, electrification, energy storage systems, energy communities, etc.

FIEE’s investments are anti-cyclical in nature and resilient to dramatic exogenous events, as has been recently proven during the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

In today’s fairly complex macroeconomic context, energy transition has come to the forefront of the world’s political and economic agenda, becoming the greatest priority of our time for policy makers and investors alike.

FIEE professionals have gained significant financial and industrial skills in the field of energy in recent decades. In particular, the team has:

  • gained over 100 years of experience in energy – most importantly in energy efficiency and renewables – infrastructure, finance and asset management;
  • consolidated a track record in identifying, structuring and executing complex transactions, also in an entrepreneurial capacity;
  • committed € 9 million to the venture, of which € 8 million to FIEE I and IEEF II.
