ECP is a leading private investment firm focused on power generation, renewables and environmental infrastructure investments.
Founded in 2005, ECP has raised over $20 billion in committed capital, including private equity funds, credit funds, one dedicated renewables-focused growth fund and co-investments. For more than 15 years, ECP has built a proven track record of successfully identifying and executing on high-quality energy infrastructure investments, including clean energy resources such as wind, solar, geothermal, and battery storage assets. ECP has demonstrated an ability to effectively invest in a rapidly decarbonizing energy sector across multiple cycles. For example, in the last 10 years, ECP has consummated over 60 transactions, with the majority of its invested capital focused on power generation, renewables, and environmental services and infrastructure.
ECP firmly believes that a functioning economy and society cannot exist without safe, cost-effective, environmentally sound and reliable energy infrastructure. Therefore, ECP has actively invested around the notion of displacing thermal coal and creating a positive environmental footprint. In addition, ECP has an established Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) oversight committee that implements ECP’s ESG policies and procedures relating to investments and their environmental and societal impacts. Certain members of our management team sit on ECP’s ESG oversight committee.
ECP’s team members have invested in power generation since the markets deregulated in the 1990s, and as a firm, ECP has invested approximately $10 billion (including co-invest) in over 170 power generation and renewables assets since 2005. ECP’s investments have included interests in over 100 currently operating or under development renewable generation facilities totaling over 15,000 megawatts across the majority of major renewable technologies in the U.S. and Canadian power markets. While ECP’s investments are driven by returns and opportunity sets, ECP believes that promoting ESG standards and creating value are inherently linked, particularly in the energy and industrial sectors. ECP has a proven track record of identifying investments with attractive risk-adjusted returns that have a beneficial impact on the environment.
