Explanatory Note

 

This Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to Schedule 13D amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D originally filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on September 10, 2018 (the “Original Schedule 13D”, and as amended, the “Schedule 13D”) related to the Class A common stock (“Class A Common Stock”) and Class C common stock (“Class C Common Stock”) of Clearway Energy, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”) whose principal executive offices are located at 300 Carnegie Center, Princeton, New Jersey 08540.

 

The Items below amend the information disclosed under the corresponding Items of the Schedule 13D as described below. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings attributed to them in the Schedule 13D.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background.

 

Item 2 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

 

The information set forth in amended and restated Annex A hereto is incorporated by reference in this amended Item 2.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

 

The information set forth or incorporated by reference in Item 6 of this Schedule 13D is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 4.

 

On May 24, 2022, GIP III Zephyr Acquisition Holdings, L.P. agreed to sell fifty percent (50%) of the equity interests in GIP III Zephyr Holdings, LLC, which in turn owns all of the equity interests in GIP III Zephyr Acquisition Partners, L.P. and Clearway Energy Group (each of which indirectly or directly beneficially owns shares of Class A Common Stock and Class C Common Stock of the Issuer), to TotalEnergies Renewables USA, LLC, an indirect subsidiary of TotalEnergies SE, (the “Transaction”). The closing of the Transaction is subject to customary but material contingencies, including without limitation receipt of certain regulatory approvals. Following the closing of the Transaction, GIP III Zephyr Acquisition Holdings, L.P. and TotalEnergies Renewables USA, LLC are each expected to indirectly own 50.00% of the equity interests in Clearway Energy Group. No shares of Class A Common Stock and Class C Common Stock are being directly transferred pursuant to the Transaction.

 

Following the closing of the Transaction, by virtue of GIP III Zephyr Acquisition Holdings, L.P.’s and TotalEnergies Renewables USA, LLC’s respective governance rights over GIP III Zephyr Holdings, LLC, GIP III Zephyr Acquisition Holdings, L.P. and TotalEnergies Renewables USA, LLC may be deemed to share beneficial ownership of all of the equity interests in shares of Class A Common Stock and Class C Common Stock that are now beneficially owned by Clearway Energy Group LLC. Following the closing of the Transaction, GIP III Zephyr Acquisition Holdings, L.P. and TotalEnergies Renewables USA, LLC are also each contemplated to have certain other governance rights related to Clearway Energy Group and its subsidiaries, including without limitation with respect to the exercise of director nomination rights held by Clearway Energy Group with respect to the board of the directors of the Issuer. The Transaction is expected to close by year end 2022, subject to customary conditions but material contingencies, including without limitation, the receipt of certain regulatory and other approvals. However, there can be no assurance that the Transaction closing will actually occur, or occur by any particular date or on the currently anticipated terms.

 

As of the date hereof, Nathaniel Anschuetz, a Principal at GIP and member of the Board of Directors of Clearway Energy Group, serves on the Board of Directors of the Issuer. Jonathan Bram, a Founding Partner of GIP and member of the Board of Directors of Clearway Energy Group, serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Issuer. Bruce MacLennan, a Partner at GIP and member of the Board of Directors of Clearway Energy Group, serves on the Board of Directors of the Issuer.
