“As the world gathers to address climate change during COP28, there is no doubt about clean energy infrastructure as a climate solution to enable a transition to a low carbon economy. Mubadala is investing in industries of the future to help find solutions to the world’s biggest challenges, including climate change, and our partnership with Infracapital and investment in Zenobē is a strong indicator of our commitment as a responsible investor. As one of the most exciting electric vehicle and battery storage companies in the world today, Zenobē is an established first mover, with a strong track record of using technical and commercial innovation to bring leading sustainable solutions to market.”

“The growing demand for sustainable power and the decarbonization of transport are two key global trends today, and we see great potential in Zenobē to build on its already impressive growth in its core markets and diversify further into new countries. We are proud to complete this transaction and we are committed to supporting Zenobē to deliver sustainable solutions for a more sustainable future,” Mr. Al Qubaisi added.

Supported by Mubadala, Infracapital is investing a further $340 million in Zenobē to grow the business in the UK and globally. KKR, a leading global investment firm, is also investing approximately $757 million, forming a strategic partnership with Infracapital as joint majority shareholders in Zenobē.

With the support of its shareholders, Zenobē aims to power 4,000 electric buses, trucks, and commercial vehicles, catalyzing the global shift to cleaner transportation by 2026. The transaction represents a significant milestone for Zenobē and underscores Mubadala’s unwavering commitment to driving positive change and contributing to a sustainable and resilient future, as per the statement.
