Fortistar CNG Stations and Other Projects Avoided 2.1 Million Tons of GHG Emissions
Fortistar, who investments in energy sources primarily focused on the transitioning to a zero-carbon economy, announced that it avoided 2.125 million tons of GHG emissions in 2016.
“For nearly 30 years, Fortistar has been focused on the transition to lower carbon energy sources. We believe strongly that sustainable energy generation done right makes financial sense—for private companies, municipalities and for federal agencies,” said Mark Comora, President, Fortistar.
For more than three decades, Fortistar has built, invested in, owned, and managed a portfolio of low-carbon energy initiatives in the United States and Canada. Fortistar’s investment and operational successes include: More than 100 CNG fueling stations built or managed in states across the US, including Florida, Texas, Oklahoma and California by portfolio company TruStar Energy; 31 renewable landfill gas to energy facilities with 180 megawatt capacity for municipalities in Los Angeles, California, Prince William County, Virginia, and various locations for the Department of Defense; and 65 megawatt of renewable energy capacity generated by biomass in Canada.
Fortistar recognized the opportunities and challenges at the intersection of significantly increasing demand for energy and rising environmental concerns. Recognizing this, the company developed an investment strategy connecting people, capital and low-carbon energy solutions to return positive and sustainable results.
