The growth loan from Denmark's Export & Investment Fund is a recognition of both the robustness of Aegir Insights as a business, and the company's role in furthering the energy transition through modern, data-driven and adaptable intelligence for the offshore wind sector.
As part of the investment process, Aegir Insights was evaluated across several ESG criteria and committed to continuous improvement and transparent reporting.
