(Bloomberg) — The Renewables Infrastructure Group Ltd., a
London-based clean-energy fund, is boosting its latest share
offer to 102.25 million pounds ($152 million) in response to
investor demand.

The fund is issuing an additional 32.5 million new shares
on top of the 62.5 million it originally offered after demand
“significantly exceeded” expectations, it said in a statement
Friday. The shares will be priced at 102.25 pence apiece, taking
expected proceeds to 102.25 million pounds, it said.

The money will be used to “take advantage of its pipeline
of attractive investment opportunities” and repay some debt.

solar-power plants. It currently owns onshore wind farms and
solar parks across the U.K., France and Ireland. The fund is
managed by InfraRed Capital Partners Ltd. It has the rights to
