London-based clean-energy fund, said it’s raised 110 million

The fund raised the money through the sale of 107.5 million
shares priced at 102.25 pence each, it said Monday in an e-mailed statement.

solar-power plants. It currently owns onshore wind farms and
solar parks across the U.K., France and Ireland. The fund is
managed by InfraRed Capital Partners Ltd. It has the rights to
buy projects built by Renewable Energy Systems Ltd., a developer
of renewable-electricity facilities.
