What We Do

HASI actively partners with clients to deploy real assets that facilitate the energy transition. Our goal is to generate attractive returns from a diversified portfolio of projects with long-term, predictable cash flows from proven technologies that reduce carbon emissions or increase resilience to climate change.

Our investments have taken many forms, including equity, joint ventures, land ownership, lending, or other financing transactions. In addition to Net Investment Income from our portfolio, we also generate ongoing fees through gain-on-sale securitization transactions, asset management, and other services.
