Brookfield to acquire TerraForm companies amid green power investment push Add to ...

Brookfield Asset Management Inc. is bringing its trademark operating style to green power businesses shaken by a backer in bankruptcy protection, the latest large Canadian investor to boost its stake in alternative energy.

Brookfield’s large, and long-awaited, deals to invest in solar and wind operators TerraForm Power and TerraForm Global come as Canadian institutional investors look to buy renewable-power assets.
