Matrix Renewables wins LATAM Renewables Deal of the Year 2021 award from IJ Global

The prize was awarded for Matrix’s PMGD portfolio transaction which closed in Chile 

17 March, 2022, MADRID, Spain – Matrix Renewables, the TPG Rise-backed renewable energy platform, has been awarded LATAM Renewables Deal of the Year at the 2021 IJ Global Awards. 

The ceremony, which took place last week, praised Matrix Renewables for the transaction closed in Chile for the financing its Pequeños Medios de Generación Distribuida (PMGD) portfolio, 328MW of greenfield and brownfield solar photovoltaic projects in Chile. The transaction was significant, as it represented the largest portfolio of PMGDs ever financed in Chile as well as the first long-term US Private Placement for this type of asset. 

The IJ Global awards celebrate the best transactions across different regions, recognizing the efforts of teams working on some of the most complex transactions in energy and infrastructure sectors. 

Speaking after the awards, Nicolas Navas, Matrix Renewables CFO commented, “We are honoured to receive this award in recognition of the hard work and dedication produced by our teams and the outstanding milestone achievements we have reached after only 18 months since our foundation. We hope to continue on this path, and we would like to thank all the parties that have helped us and supported us along the way.”
