Building an affordable clean power platform for everyone

For over a decade, the Coalition for Green Capital has led the Green Bank movement, working at the federal, state, and local levels in the U.S. and countries around the world to unlock capital and empower communities to embrace a greener future. This work has led to the creation of the first U.S. national green bank and billions toward clean energy adoption.

Our Mission

Use public-private investments to accelerate the clean power platform in every community

We accelerate investments in the clean economy to reduce emissions and improve the quality of life for all Americans. By leveraging both public and private partnerships and the power of responsive financing, our network works to remove barriers to clean technology and increase energy abundance by, for, and with communities.

Together, we can accelerate the deployment of clean energy technology throughout the US while maintaining a targeted focus on low-income and disadvantaged communities.

Maximizing public capital to reduce emissions and pollution: bringing the clean future to all communities

The U.S. EPA took a big step toward a greener future by capitalizing the first US national green bank through the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF).

The EPA selected the Coalition for Green Capital for an award of $5 billion to capitalize a national green bank under The National Clean Investment Fund competition and $125 million under Solar for All to establish green banks and accelerate the development of solar in North and South Dakota. 

Through strategic partnerships and innovative financing, our national green bank will create a clean energy finance ecosystem that will fill critical market gaps and maximize the impact of every public dollar invested to achieve the nation’s climate goals for many years to come.

Our Goals

Our vision is big and inclusive: we want everyone to be part of the clean power platform.

To accomplish a rapid and just transition to a clean economy, America needs a massive mobilization of capital investment catalyzed by innovative public-private financing in every community. This is why CGC’s national green bank will work to maximize the impact of every public dollar invested by selecting projects that are high-impact, highly recyclable, and have a high capital mobilization ratio. This means more private capital mobilized and greater amounts of emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHGs) and other air pollutants being reduced or eliminated.

Our Network

The CGC Network consists of partners with extensive track records of leveraging billions of public dollars to increase private capital investments throughout all 10 EPA Regions. These partnerships will ensure that CGC can transform markets and drive the adoption of Priority Projects in every LIDAC in the country, as well as rural and Tribal communities.

Our Experience

CGC has spent years preparing for this moment
