Amir Sharifi, CIO of Hy24 and Energy Transition Lead at Ardian
Today’s podcast is about hydrogen--what many of the largest industrial companies believe is the future of energy. In October 2021, Hy24, the largest investment platform dedicated to financing clean hydrogen energy, was launched by a joint venture between Ardian and Five T Hydrogen. Amir Sharifi, the CIO of Hy24 and the energy transition lead at Ardian, explains how the €500bn CAPEX commitment from large industrial companies as well as the €80bn in government subsidies is driving the development of clean hydrogen. Sharifi explains that his team is mobilizing €1.5bn for its first private investment fund in the EU, Asia, and the Americas, with the goal of achieving €15bn by 2027.
