Renewable Energy Project Financing

Renewable energy project financing is heart and soul of our organization. Moving to renewable energy sources is a global effort, but the choice is clear. It will improve air pollution and energy security while fostering economic growth, and ultimately would improve health and quality of life of everyone sharing this planet. As energy demands continue to rise and fossil fuels are depleted, sustainable energy becomes increasingly important, which can be seen in the job growth within the renewable energy sector here in the United States. We understand the value of the entire spectrum of renewable energy technology: wind, solar, biomass, even geothermal and hydro.

In recent years third-party renewable energy project financing has been driving the cost lower, opening up access that was previously closed. Much of this has to do with the increased variety available on the renewable energy financial market, including power purchase agreements and a myriad of leasing options. There are also less frequently used products such as PACE project financing, which fill a need in the underserved small commercial market.

This reduced cost isn’t limited to the U.S. or other leaders in the renewable industry; it is also being seen in developing nations where over one billion people do not have access to electricity. Three times as many still rely on fuels like wood or coal to do their cooking. Renewable energy projects on the utility scale greatly improve health, while renewable energy projects on any scale boost economic growth and create jobs in their communities. If you are building energy-generating wind turbines on the other side of the world or a solar farm right our own back yard, we are happy to assist. We have been financing renewable energy projects for years and have been able to help countless clients earn their energy independence. Anyone who is looking for renewable energy project financing in the United States, Canada, India, China, or anywhere on this planet will find a wide range of financial solutions to solve any financing challenges.

We provide a number of financing solutions for renewable energy projects ranging from small commercial solar projects to utility scale renewable energy farms. Our proven experience means that we know which solutions will work for your situation, and how to close those solutions. Let us know how we can help; we will continue our investment in renewable technologies as we push forward to a low-carbon environment.

Infrastructure Loan Financing

Infrastructure project financing is something relatively new to the world of private lending. Historically, public infrastructure projects were large and typically funded by the government through fundraising channels such as bond measures. Later, seeing the need for more options, banks entered and have become the traditional financing provider for commercial infrastructure loans. In recent years private sources of capital have quietly been entering the commercial marketplace. The migration toward private lenders has been slow for a number of reasons, including capital intensity and a long asset life. It takes a specialized team to understand the unique requirements and characteristics of infrastructure loans, this coupled with the previous issues has prevented many lenders from entering the market. Our team is well versed in the unique challenges faced when seeking large commercial project financing. We can provide creative solutions that include both private equity financing and debt financing or a combination financing package.

The difficulties do not end there, as these tend to be the most complex projects we see. Each commercial infrastructure project is very unique and little specific information carries over from one project to the next. In order to spread the risk across the numerous entities involved, complex legal agreements are required. Commercial infrastructure financing often appears clouded with the depth of legal arrangements and unique nature causing a lack of transparency. This concerns many investors who are used to more straightforward, fully transparent projects in other sectors.

We are not deterred by any of these issues, as we look beyond the troubles above. By approaching infrastructure lending as another form of commercial project finance, it allows us to bring our experience and proven methods. This technique allows us to simplify an already complex financing project by adding structure and clear expectations. Our team understands the risks involved, and how those are outweighed by benefits. Once infrastructure projects pass the high costs & risk in the pre-development and construction phases, entering the operational phase they generally become very stable and profitable. Beyond their strong stability and profit potential, financing commercial infrastructure projects is invaluable to the communities the projects serve, providing resources such as reliable clean drinking water. For these reasons, we appreciate any opportunity to work on infrastructure projects where private lending is required.

Waste to Energy Project Financing

Waste-to-energy (WTE) is a form of biomass renewable energy and is the process of generating electricity (or heat) by destroying waste, commonly in the form of incineration. Often the energy is generating directly from the incineration process, other times the processes yield combustible fuels like methane or syngas. In its simplest form, it is burning garbage to produce electricity. Upon deeper investigation, it is an increasingly complex process in which various forms of waste are used as a feedstock, then super-heated to the point they break down to their most basic elements and compounds. At this point there are different approaches to capturing the energy. This is the most basic concept we see all waste to energy projects follow that approach seeking energy project financing. Following the energy capture phase, the air is treated in various ways to remove any remaining contaminants and harmful emissions before releasing low emission exhaust. The treatment of the exhaust from the waste-to-energy power plant largely depends upon the regulations, some countries or cities have tighter emissions restrictions than others.

When choosing a lender for your waste-to-energy project funding it is important to find one with experience and desire to work in the WTE financing industry. Many renewable energy lenders prefer to deal with commercial solar and wind project financing, not understanding the many unique challenges of funding waste-to-energy projects and ultimately failing to close. Our energy project specialists know the importance of WTE project, which reduces our reliance on landfills and helping to offset the solid waste of the communities they serve. We are happy to assist with any questions regarding your project or the products we can offer.

Some important things to consider with waste-to-energy and biomass projects in general are how they differ from other renewable energy packages; waste energy projects have a high failure rate, coupled with a lack of valuable real estate and assets means these biomass projects can be more difficult to get funded. As a segment, waste-to-energy project financing has greater requirements and its own unique challenges. This is why you need someone with experience and knowledge to help you secure your biomass financing, we understand the challenges faced and know how to deal with them.

While we can help with the challenges above, there are items that make your WTE biomass project more desirable to project lenders. Much like any industry, it is easier to secure funding for proven technology. If your biomass project is one-of-a-kind, it may be difficult to find a renewable energy lender willing to take a risk. It is also critical that biomass projects have secured long-term offtake and feedstock agreements, as these both provide a stable future which leads to a sustainable energy project.

Green Waste to Energy

Green Energy Experts is the strategic partner for the manufacturer of the next generation of Waste to Energy technology that is available in the global market place today.

This is not a gasification, pyrolysis or combustion process that creates hazardous gases and materials that need additional processing and disposal.

This is a closed loop system that produces NO HAZARDOUS EMISSIONS or bi-products and any feedstock materials with zero BTU value are sorted and recycled during the processing cycle.

The system is capable of poly-generation: the simultaneous production of electricity, steam, hot water, and Bio-fuels plus produces various commodities that can be sold for additional revenue streams.
