qualified capital for sustainable infrastructure
Alturus provides qualified, competitively sourced capital for sustainable infrastructure projects.

Fortune 1000 companies work with Alturus to structure comprehensive financing solutions for their energy conservation, generation and storage initiatives.

Alturus enables customers to maximize the benefits available from the latest energy efficiency, HVAC, water treatment, equipment controls, building automation systems or onsite cogeneration technologies. By working with Alturus, companies are able to dramatically reduce energy costs and greatly improve the environmental performance of their operations.

Historically, the latest energy conservation, generation and storage technologies have required end users to make a significant capital investment to install at scale.

Fortune 1000 energy managers have been forced to fight for capital investment allocations in order to pursue cost saving energy management initiatives that would help meet sustainability targets. These investment requirements compete with other core business activities and have often made installing at scale a challenge.

Until now.

Alturus provides qualified capital for sustainable infrastructure projects. We work with Fortune 1000 companies to structure comprehensive financing solutions for their energy conservation, generation and storage initiatives. Companies work with Alturus as the preferred financing partner for their HVAC, building automation, equipment control, onsite cogeneration, energy storage and water treatment projects.

Alturus enables companies to structure and deploy energy efficiency and sustainable infrastructure upgrades at scale without any capital investment required. As a result, energy and facilities managers can spend their time working on projects that reduce costs and improve the environmental performance of their operations.

How It Works
Alturus structures and manages the entire project financing process for our customers in a highly transparent manner.

Alturus manages an extensive, proprietary network of capital providers who are interested in investing in sustainable infrastructure projects. These investors include institutional asset managers, sovereign wealth funds and multi-family offices who manage total aggregate portfolios in excess of $100 billion. They look to Alturus to manage the entire origination and underwriting process for their investments in energy conservation, generation and generation and storage projects.

Alturus leverages its market knowledge to structure financing solutions for our customers that leverage the lowest cost of capital available in order to maximize the value of their energy management and sustainability initiatives. Customers are provided with a complete audit trail of the project finance program for their projects.
