List of 3 single family offices that are investing in renewable energy

Single family offices are an important source of capital for projects in a wide range of areas. Especially the renewable energy sector requires significant amounts of capital to realize upcoming solar and wind energy projects, as well as investments in startups working on novel technologies and green energy solution. In the following, we are introducing you to three exciting startups that had high renewable energy keyword rates in our analysis and that are, accordingly, part of list of the largest renewables focused single family offices in the world.

1. Libra Group (London, UK)

The Libra group is the family office and family holding for the Logothetis family, led by George Logothetis. The firm is active in various areas, amongst them the renewable energy industry. In our analysis, the family office reached an average renewable energy keyword rate of 1.4%. In the renewable energy field, the firm invests in companies that develop solar, wind as well as waste-to-energy projects. The portfolio companies are owning and developing more than 200 projects.

For instance, solar farms in Kurukshetra, Lonavla and Thane, as well as a wind farm in Jodhpur.

In this list we combine two unique assets: our global database with more than 1,600 global single family offices and our expertise in building web crawlers and analysis tool. For this list, we checked if the websites of the family offices from our database cover renewable energy keywords, such as „renewables“, „solar“ or the translated versions thereof. This list includes all the data from our family office lists, as well as dedicated keyword analysis columns. The list include all family offices from our database that have at least 1 relevant renewable keyword occurrence.

Keyword Crawler Methodology: how we identify renewables focused family offices

It would be close to impossible to check every family office website from our database for occurrences of renewable keywords. So, we implemented a Python-based web crawler that works in a 3 step process:

  1. Every website is crawled for subpages. This works like the Google crawler, recursively crawling through every family office website in our database.
  2. Then, based on the list of subpages, a keyword analysis is conducted for every subpage: we count how often the targeted keyword are mentioned and set it in relation with the total number of words. So, we calculate a couple of statistics (mentioned below) and also highlight the subpage with the highest number of occurrences. 
  3. We combine the results with the data of our global family office database. So, you get a targeted list with relevant family offices in the target area.

Results of the keyword analysis: data points included in the list

First, the here offered list includes all the columns and data points of our regular family office list, including contact details, detailed investment focus information, executives and background information. Then, this information is extended by the results of our keyword analysis, namely: 

  • total_frequency (e.g.: 16) – total counted occurrences of keywords on family office website
  • average_keyword_rate (e.g. 0.1) – average rate of keyword occurrences per subpage in relation with total number of words
  • most_common_keyword (e.g. „renewables“) – keyword that was counted the most often on family office website
  • most_common_keyword_frequency (e.g. 10) – number of times the most common keyword was counted
  • sub_url_highest_rate (e.g. https://familyofficeabc.de/renewables) – sub url with the highest number of found keywords
  • highest_rate (e.g. 0.1) – highest keyword rate per subpage
  • frequency_per_keyword: {‚renewables’: 2, ‘solar’: 143, ‘photovoltaic’: 7, ‘renewable’: 172, ‘erneuerbare’: 0, ‘renouvelables’: 0, ‘renovables’: 5, ‘renováveis’: 0, ‘rinnovabili’: 0} – dictionary of number of keyword occurrences per keyword

Analyzed keywords and crawler settings

Our crawler analyzed the family office websites for the following keywords: “renewables”,”solar”,”photovoltaic”,”renewable”,”erneuerbare”, “renouvelables”, “renovables”, “renováveis”,”rinnovabili”

Thereby, we cover renewable keywords in the most important languages for the countries covered in our database. We only focused on the solar keyword to avoid false-positives, since „wind“ has its own translation in many of the covered languages and can also be used in various different contexts. Our crawler analyzed every family office website for at least 60 seconds.

Pros and cons of our keyword-based approach

Our list Is the perfect starting point for getting in touch with single family offices in the renewable energy space. By crawling the websites of the family offices and calculating keyword occurrence rates, we managed to identify the most relevant family offices. However, our approach has two possible pitfalls. First, our keyword crawler only works if the targeted keywords are mentioned on the website. That’s often the case, since throughout the last years, many family offices started communicating their investments. However, if a family office does not have a website or keeps its activities in the space secret, it won’t be mentioned. Second, since we can not interpret the context of the keywords, false positives are possible. For instance, if a family office writes an article why it is not investing in renewables, it would still be in the list. In addition, we can not deliver results if the website effectively blocks our crawler (which is rarely the case).

All in all, we are convinced that our list offers a highly relevant starting point for identifying the most relevant renewable energy focused family offices.

    We are a Spanish solar energy project development firm. We are using this list to get in touch with new possible investors. Many family office contacts in the list are really valuable for us. The keyword score helps us to directly approach the most relevant ones. Some family offices with low scores are not so relevant, but we anticipated that
