About Us

The Coalition for Green Capital’s (CGC) mission is to drive greater clean energy investment into existing and new markets, in the United States and in developing countries with the goal of creating a 100% clean energy platform.

There is an opportunity and need to dramatically increase investment by connecting abundant capital with untapped and underserved markets and technologies.

To realize this opportunity, CGC incubates local clean energy finance organizations – often called Green Banks – and structures public, private and mission-driven capital for investment through those organizations. A large network of local clean energy finance organizations can access hard-to-reach projects, expand clean energy equity, and provide a scalable model for a thriving network for clean energy investment.

CGC, a 501c3 non-profit, is the leading expert and implementer of Green Banks, with a decade of work around the world that has led to over $2 billion of clean energy investment.
