The purpose of the flotation is to raise the public profile and provide new funds for the Company's proposed acquisition strategy in the renewable or clean energy technology sector and to finance, develop and promote environmentally sound power generation and storage projects internationally.
Net Zero Infrastructure PLC was formed as a special purpose acquisition company with the intention to acquire renewable or clean energy technology companies and to finance, develop and promote those environmentally sound projects internationally.
The Company believes that due to the highly visible global concerns regarding environmental damage and climate change as a result of fossil-fuelled power generation, there exists considerable commercial opportunities in the renewable and clean energy sector which will play an increasingly significant role in meeting future energy needs while reducing further environmental damage.
Clean energy investment globally has grown in real and relative terms. It is this opportunity which Net Zero Infrastructure intends to participate in and augment as a fund-raising vehicle for enterprises seeking access to international markets.
The Company's prospectus published in connection with its listing is available on the Company's website at www.nziplc.com.
