Short Hills, N.J.- and San Diego-based private equity firm Energy Capital Partners has closed its first fund at $2.25 billion, well over its target of $1.5 billion, according to the firm.

Energy Capital Partners I will invest in North American power and energy infrastructure, especially power generation, electric transmission, and gas storage and pipelines. The fund made its first investment, the $1.34 billion acquisition of NE Energy, last month.

Helm, Peter Labbat, Tom Lane, Andrew Singer and Sarah Wright – who worked together
from platforms including Goldman, Sachs & Co., Constellation Energy Commodities
