Capital Infrastructure Investments & Upgrades

In a capital constrained economy, we can help you invest in your critical energy infrastructure.

Access to Capital for Upgrades and Maintenance

Even prior to COVID-19, many government agencies, hospitals and higher education institutions have been financially constrained when it comes to investing in sustainability/carbon reduction, energy generation and resiliency infrastructure projects.

Government agencies are deferring and/or cancelling much needed projects due to budget shortfalls and limited borrowing capacity. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are facing similar financial challenges and need to focus available investment capital on essential medical systems and treatment services. Higher education institutions are seeing enrollment and revenues decline, while still needing to invest in energy infrastructure that in many cases is already at the end of its useful life. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, infrastructure investment needs in the United States were estimated at $2.7 trillion in 2020 and are projected to rise to $10 trillion by 2040. (ASCE Report, 2013, p. 8).
