Canada Pension Plan Investment Board invests further $300m in Octopus energy

The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) has committed an additional $300m (C$511m) to the Octopus Energy Group.

CPP Investments, the investment management arm of C$576bn Canada Pension Plan, stated that its latest commitment to Octopus Energy increases its stake in the UK-based energy company from 6 to 11%.

Octopus Energy was founded in 2015 and became the UK’s second-largest household energy supplier after it bought oil and gas supermajor Shell’s UK household supply division this year. In addition, it manages renewable energy projects worth £6bn, including wind and solar farms in 16 countries.

According to CPP Investments, its additional $300m commitment to Octopus will support its technology platform, Kraken, and the furthering of its renewable energy, heat pump and electric vehicle offerings.

Bill Rogers, CPP Investment’s managing director and global head of sustainable energies, said: “CPP Investments backs leading companies across the energy transition with our flexible capital, global network and deep expertise – this follow-on investment in Octopus is an important example of this, while delivering attractive long-term, risk-adjusted returns to the CPP Fund.”

As of September 2023, CPP Investments had committed C$32bn to the global energy transition through its sustainable energies group.
