Germany-based clean-energy fund Hep Kapitalverwaltung AG agreed to invest $50 million to $80 million annually in a partnership to develop small solar projects in the U.S.

Hep and ReNew Petra, a North Carolina-based renewable energy company, plan to jointly develop more than 100 megawatts of solar annually, according to a statement Wednesday. Their venture, Emerald Hills Holding, will enable ReNew to expand beyond the Southeast.
