"CleanMax has a proven track record of being an efficient partner to C&I (commercial and industrial) customers, enabling them to achieve their decarbonization targets. We are pleased to partner with CleanMax as they chart the next stage of their growth and look forward to supporting the company by leveraging Brookfield's global relationships, access to capital and operational expertise," said Nawal Saini, managing director, Renewable Power and Transition, Brookfield.

In an official statement the company stated that through this investment, Brookfield Renewable will have a controlling stake in CleanMax, and will work with existing shareholders and management to drive the platform's growth in the commercial and industrial (C&I) segment in India.
