Investment Strategy

NY Green Bank represents a new approach in the clean energy marketplace. We are market-focused and market-responsive, eliciting input on needs for particular products and transaction structures directly from the marketplace. We focus on financial solutions to unleash more private capital in, and scaled deployment of, clean energy within New York State. NY Green Bank operates on the near-frontier of current clean energy capital markets, focusing on areas where there is market interest but limited capital availability due to specific financing gaps and barriers. NY Green Bank participation can include the role of credit enhancement provider (e.g., a reserve account or a junior interest), lender (e.g., senior, mezzanine or subordinated), or warehouse provider (with the likelihood of being taken out by private sector third parties). We work with entities already achieving success in clean energy, but whose progress is constrained by the lack of available financing.
