This substantial investment marks a significant milestone in Renewa’s mission to spearhead the transformation towards renewable energy solutions across the United States.
They offer innovative financial solutions to landowners and renewable energy developers, acquiring land and associated rental payments from various utility-scale wind, solar, storage, and critical infrastructure projects.
This strategic approach has positioned Renewa as the proud owner of expansive land portfolios beneath over 130 renewable energy facilities spanning 26 states in collaboration with more than 50 developers.
Enabling a Green Evolution
Renewa’s substantial influx of capital is poised to galvanize the United States’ journey towards renewable energy prominence.
Estimates highlight that an astounding 250 million acres of land will be essential to accommodate the burgeoning solar, wind, and energy storage facilities – a remarkable increase from a mere 81 million acres just a few years ago.
Stephen Lee, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Renewa, said, “The transition to renewable energy takes innovation, financial commitment, policy leadership, and arguably the most critical element – land.” This financial backing ensures Renewa’s pivotal role in expediting the development of renewable energy infrastructure.
A Resolute Impact
Renewa is projected to significantly curtail approximately 5 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions through projects facilitated by ground lease assets in 2023. This reduction is akin to eliminating around 1 million passenger cars from American roads, underlining Renewa’s commitment to environmental stewardship.
In conjunction with the funding, Renewa is proud to welcome distinguished energy industry veterans – Mark Noyes, Peter Tumminello, and Natalie Jackson – to its board as independent directors.
Their wealth of experience in energy project development, operation, and financing is poised to elevate Renewa’s comprehensive expertise.
A Diversified Commitment
Renewa’s resounding impact is vividly demonstrated by its presence in over 30 gigawatts of projects. This showcases Renewa’s capacity to contribute to the renewable energy sector.
In an era where the transition to renewable energy is non-negotiable, Renewa’s unwavering commitment to fostering innovation, sustainability, and financial viability shines brightly. With QIC’s instrumental backing and the seasoned guidance of industry veterans, Renewa aims to redefine the trajectory of renewable energy in the United States and beyond.
