SEACEF II focuses on providing early-stage, high-risk capital to help Southeast Asia gear up for more low-carbon initiatives. The fund will be putting money into renewable energy, energy efficiency, electric mobility, and electrical grid businesses.
Launched in 2020, SEACEF I has made twelve investments, Clime Capital said. According to the firm, the fund’s deals through 2022 have pulled in more than 27x of the initial capital invested, beating results from both governments and private-sector funds.

According to the company, additional funding transactions are in the works and will be announced when finalized.
