Hamilton Bradshaw Renewables Capital (“HBRC”) is a member of the Hamilton Bradshaw Group (“HB”). We seek to invest as a principal and with our funding partners in privately owned companies in the broad renewable energy, power and sustainability sectors, who are seeking expansion capital. Our founder directors offer proven track records of high level expertise and leadership in the sectors combined with track records of building and exiting successful growth businesses across numerous other business sectors.

We believe that for both governments and businesses worldwide, the challenges of rising energy prices and less reliable supply will become key licence to operate issues. Equally the increasing importance to consumers of sustainable energy, products and services, will provide continued momentum to these sectors as traditional business models founded on fossil fuel energy and supply chains  are rapidly re-written.

HBRC is able to help management teams and businesses exploit these fundamental energy and consumer market shifts. We align with them from the outset through providing capital, board and management assistance and expert strategic advice through each stage of the company’s growth cycle to exit by way of IPO or trade sale.

We seek to invest in companies with exciting growth prospects

HBRC invests as a principal and together with our investment partners in companies operating in the identified market sectors. We look for strong, committed and incentivised management teams, who have a developed business model capable of rapid growth. We invest with our investment partners in companies either pre-revenue, in early revenue generation and in later stage infrastructure.

Transaction size

Our targeted transaction size is between £5m-£100m although we would lead and manage larger infrastructure related fundraisings with our investment partners and through our network of specialist relationship transaction advisors.

Our target sectors

We are interested in companies operating in the following sub-sectors:

Renewable energy Renewable heat Energy efficiency Wider environmental & clean energy Sustainable supply chain Energy from waste Renewable trasport fuel
  • Renewable energy
  • Renewable heat
  • Energy from waste
  • Renewable trasport fuel
  • Energy efficiency
  • Wider environmental & clean energy
  • Sustainable supply chain

We would consider business models that cover all aspects of the value chain including:

  • Infrastructure development
  • Infrastructure build & operations
  • Services
  • Supply chain
  • Cleantech

Board of Directors

The HBRC team has experience in the energy and renewables sector and over 25 years of experience in the wider pre-IPO to IPO market. Our team has an outstanding track record of supporting growth businesses to achieve scale and profitability, enabling shareholders to realise a profitable exit. We understand what is required to create a scalable and profitable company and what the interim steps are to unlock, nurture, protect and realise such value.

Why Us?

We offer owner-managed growth companies a unique set of expertise that sets us apart from traditional venture capital and private equity investors.

Understanding the Market

The rapidly evolving sector dynamics will create opportunities for new companies as traditional fossil fuel based business models become rapidly outmoded. Equally we believe earlier stage investment capital is not yet sufficiently liquid to support this structural change. HBRC is specifically set up to support new innovative owner-managed businesses looking to benefit from these market dynamics.


At HBRC, we believe fundamentally in supporting growth businesses from an early stage through the build phase to exit. We look for strong equity alignment from the outset to ensure our interests are entirely in sync with our investee company shareholders.

Strategic Input

Our directors have high level experience of successfully building and exiting growth companies and realising significant shareholder value via IPO or trade sale. This is complemented by the  expertise within the renewable energy, sustainability and power sectors of James Barrett-Miles.

Operating Partners

Our operating partner philosophy provides further strategic and operational bandwidth to investee companies to complement our directors’ expertise. Our operating partners are available to help drive real growth and value.

Investment Partners

We have extensive relationships with global investors from the renewable sector and wider funding markets. HBRC would lead on all financing rounds for investee companies, leveraging our network of transaction advisors as required. This frees up management to focus on the delivery of the business strategy.

Hamilton Bradshaw Group

Investee companies will benefit from the association with HB and its founder James Caan CBE, one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs. The early association with the HB brand is value enhancing to investee companies as they  seek to forge strategic relationships in the market during  their early growth phase. HBRC is also able to leverage the wider infrastructure and investor market contacts within HB, which has specialisms in international real estate financing and recruitment.
