An overview of the sectors that we invest in.
Canadian Green Fund uses an internally developed
analysis model to assist it in originating investment 'platforms' that generate superior investment returns.
Canadian Green Fund originates platforms that can provide 'non-correlated performance' that investors use to help insulate their portfolios from the ups and downs of public equity and bond markets.
District Energy & Microgrids
District Energy and MicroGrids are an important fast-growing sector that requires special knowledge and experience to reliably, seamlessly and affordably plan, execute and operate these interconnected systems.
Canadian Green Fund is working with several organizations to provide unique funding solutions to accelerate the development of district energy and micro grid projects.

Energy Storage & EV Charging
Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time. A device that stores energy is sometimes called an accumulator. Energy comes in multiple forms including radiation, chemical, gravitational potential, electrical potential, electricity, elevated temperature, latent heat and kinetic.
Energy storage involves converting energy from forms that are difficult to store to more conveniently or economically storable forms. Bulk energy storage is dominated by pumped hydro, which accounts for 99% of global energy storage.
Additional information on why Canadian Green Fund is interested in investing in energy storage systems both behind and in front of the meter is provided via this link.
Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
