Fuyo General Lease is setting up a subsidiary in the UK from April 2024 to invest in renewable energy, particularly offshore wind. It entered the European renewable energy business in June 2022, and in about a year and a half, the total amount of investment and loans exceeded 50 billion yen in Japanese yen. The company will also invest approximately 30 million euros (approximately 4.7 billion yen) in a fund managed by Danish investment company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).
Fuyo General Lease already has subsidiaries in the UK and Ireland focused on aircraft leasing and acquired British company Aircraft Leasing and Management in 2014. Other Japanese leasing companies such as Orix have already been expanding in Europe – Orix acquired Spanish renewables company Elawan Energy in 2020.
