Investment Strategy

New Energy Capital invests in diversified portfolios of power generation and energy assets with a focus on small- to mid-size projects and companies with total capital requirements of $20-$300 million.

The NEC investment strategy focuses on operationally differentiated management teams and mitigated downside risk in an underserved part of the capital markets.

With more than 100 years of experience across the infrastructure and energy markets, and a proven reputation as a strong partner to our investors, portfolio companies, and counterparties, the NEC team has one of the most robust networks of industry and government contacts to assist developers with complex transactions that must integrate a range of regulatory, environmental, financial, technical, legal and project management expertise.

We are a collaborative and trusted partner with our investors, portfolio companies, and development partners. Portfolio projects will incorporate only commercially-proven technologies and will employ active measures to mitigate project risks through contracted sales of energy and products, secure resources, and strategies to minimize the impact of commodity volatility.

NEC believes the market for sustainable infrastructure assets is in the early stages of a prolonged expansion. The fundamental drivers of the investment opportunity include:

  • Required replacement of aging infrastructure
  • Significant cost decreases in clean generation, water, and waste technologies
  • Regulatory mandates
  • Growing public support for renewable energy
  • Risk mitigation and diversification by utilities and other public companies
