CleanCapital’s founding mission was to accelerate the flow of institutional capital into the middle market solar sector. While we continue to act on opportunities to expand our portfolio, we are increasingly seeking ways to be on the leading edge of investing in new and emerging markets and asset classes that drive the energy transition.
Solving the climate crisis, a consistent focus on innovation, and promoting diversity continue to be the core tenants of our culture.
Our innovative, proprietary investment platform streamlined and accelerated the flow of capital into renewable energy assets.
We leveraged equity investments from CarVal Investors, BlackRock, and Manulife to become one of the top ten commercial solar asset owners in the nation.
A 2021 equity investment from Manulife accelerated our growth and the scale of our ambitions, including the acquisition of BQ Energy and investments in early-stage development in emerging markets such as Alaska.
In 2022 CleanCapital acquired BQ Energy, a national leader in landfill and brownfield renewable energy development with a solar and solar + storage development pipeline totaling more than 1 GW.
The alignment with CleanCapital provides ready access to capital and investment expertise, enabling BQ Energy to pursue opportunities to develop new clean energy projects in high impact areas.
Our investments in early-stage project development, emerging markets, and companies such as BQ Energy position CleanCapital well to maximize the benefits of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and continue leading the energy transition.
