GA_P in the acquisition of a solar project in Portugal

Gómez-Acebo & Pombo has advised Cubico Sustainable Investments, a world leader in the renewable energy sector, on the acquisition of a 13 MW solar project in operation in Portugal.
Cubico Sustainable Investments is a subsidiary of the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, one of the world’s largest pension plans, and PSP Investments, one of Canada’s largest pension fund managers.
