Our clients include large-scale energy companies, utilities, project developers, and financial firms. Our mission is to provide our clients with the necessary intelligence, capital, and access to markets to help them succeed in the New Energy Economy.
The global search for clean, economically viable new energy sources is one of the most important challenges facing our generation. This exploration demands a comprehensive understanding of how to navigate the complexities of local, national, and international regulations and incentive programs, as well as the evolution of various technologies and related cost drivers. Each new energy investment decision must take into account the underlying risk generated from high levels of regulatory uncertainty and relative performance of projects and technologies. In order to maximize investment returns, viable new energy sources also demand innovative financing solutions using a combination of debt, credits or tariffs, tax equity and traditional equity structures.
Karbone was founded to answer this exciting challenge and considers its three core services as pillars to building the New Energy Economy:
- Brokerage: Voice and electronic brokerage for the new energy asset classes, such as renewable energy credits, emission permits, carbon credits, bundled renewable power, and clean fuels. Karbone’s brokerage team aims to provide the most efficient liquidity seeking mechanism, matching buyers with sellers and investors with project developers.
- Capital Advisory: Practical and solution focused capital advisory services for renewable energy developers and investors. Karbone’s team meets the needs of a variety of market participants, linking capital sources to promising projects.
- Research and Consulting: In-depth analysis of market trends, supply and demand fundamentals, regulatory impacts and pending legislative changes. Karbone’s research team leverages access to market activity and pricing from the brokerage desk and provides market focused research pieces for various market participants and clients.
