The changing clean energy landscape in the U.S. and beyond.
Though solar and wind power have been around for some time, it’s only in the past ten or so years that both have really taken off. Need proof? Cumulative operating solar capacity is 75 times greater now than in 2008.
The global energy mix is changing.
Solar, wind, and other zero-carbon energy sources are rapidly replacing fossil fuels across the globe. Experts estimate that $9.9 trillion will be invested in clean energy power generation as it makes up 80% of the world’s new energy capacity through 2050.
What’s driving this shift?
Investing in distributed generation.
An aggregation of individual small-scale solar or storage projects creates a unique investment opportunity. But institutional investors have, by and large, had little opportunity to invest in distributed generation. That’s why we founded CleanCapital: to break down barriers to entry and invite capital investment in this critical clean energy sector.
CleanCapital manages more than 100 operating solar projects in 11 states. Our energy off takers include Fortune 100 companies, military bases, an international airport, and more than 50 schools. Our hands-on approach to portfolio management increases the value of investor assets and creates opportunities for optimization into the future.
