We have established flagship, listed entities in our areas of expertise that offer investors pure-play exposure to real assets, including reweable energy and infrastructure. As with our private funds, we invest substantial capital alongside other investors in these companies, aligning our interests in their profitable growth.
Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners
Brookfield Renewable Partners operates one of the largest publicly traded, pure-play renewable power platforms globally. Its portfolio is primarily hydroelectric and totals approximately 5,300 megawatts of installed capacity. Diversified across 67 river systems and 10 power markets in Canada, the United States and Brazil, the portfolio generates enough electricity from renewable resources to power two million homes on average each year. With a fully-contracted portfolio of high-quality assets and strong growth prospects, the business is positioned to generate stable, long-term cash flows supporting regular and growing cash distributions to unitholders.
Brookfield Infrastructure Partners
Brookfield Infrastructure Partners operates high quality, long-life assets that generate stable cash flows, require relatively minimal maintenance capital expenditures and, by virtue of barriers to entry and other characteristics, tend to appreciate in value over time. The current business consists of the ownership and operation of premier utilities, transport and energy, and timber assets in North and South America, Australasia, and Europe. Brookfield Infrastructure also seeks acquisition opportunities in other infrastructure sectors with similar attributes.
Other Listed Entities
We have established a number of our business units as listed public companies to allow other investors to participate alongside of us and provide additional capital to expand these operations.
