We are thrilled to be working with such a high caliber partner in Stonepeak and foresee this investment as a powerful catalyst for our forward trajectory. AGP is committed to reshaping the landscape of infrastructure development. Our aim is to seamlessly integrate energy and community infrastructure, developing innovative sustainable solutions that meet society’s evolving needs.”
Hajir Naghdy, Senior Managing Director at Stonepeak added: “We look forward to partnering closely with AGP’s management team, who has over 20 years of experience, on the development, construction, and operation of sustainable infrastructure. AGP’s global energy transition portfolio, logistics and community housing platform in India, and data center joint venture with Stonepeak’s existing portfolio company, Digital Edge, are directly aligned with Stonepeak’s key verticals. The opportunity to invest in sustainable asset creation and the exposure across multiple geographies make this partnership a strong fit for Stonepeak’s Asia infrastructure strategy.”

We are excited to take AMPYR’s decarbonisation contribution in Europe to new heights alongside Stonepeak”.
