In the last decade wind energy has become a fast-growing renewable energy technology. The Dutch central government has committed itself to ensuring that 16% of all energy used in the Netherlands will be sustainable by 2023. This has led to the introduction of various wind farm funds in the Netherlands and also in the rest of Europe, a development that is still progressing.
For wind farm funds subject to the obligations of the AIFMD, a depositary should be appointed. Currently Darwin Depositary Services is rendering depositary services to a number of wind farm funds.
