Investing in Technology
and Energy Transition
Based in Rio de Janeiro and Oslo, we are a Nordic-Brazilian group focused on building companies and investing in technology, energy transition and people with innovative mindset and high ambitions.
Janeiro Energy is founded by Norwegian entrepreneurs with more than 50 years of experience in Brazil, a proven track record for building companies and creating shareholder value.
Our differentiated Nordic-Brazilian background enables us to access attractive developments and technology in the Nordic region - among the most advanced in energy transition - and successfully bring them to Brazil - a global energy powerhouse.
Investment Strategy & Portfolio
We invest proprietary capital in carefully selected business areas, companies and people driven by high ambitions, attractive social and financial returns. We are particularly active in the Brazilian energy transition, seeking to build attractive investments and businesses, often based on Nordic technologies. We believe that the energy transition will be accelerated by innovative technologies, digitalisation and globalisation, and we invest broadly to build competence, network and returns to support our more active positions.
