We all know money talks, and that is certainly the case in capital-intensive energy businesses. Whether it’s developing a utility-scale wind or solar power project, bringing a natural gas field online or launching an energy efficiency services company, millions and even billions of dollars can be spent before profits are generated. And bringing investors onboard is part science, part art and a dose of secret sauce. These are the people who help raise the funds needed to get projects and programs built.
Breaking Energy worked with the New York Energy Week leadership to identify those in the finance community helping to facilitate, fund and otherwise assist in the development of important energy projects.
