Palmetto History

In our earlier days, Palmetto sourced clean energy projects all over the globe, from Buenos Aires to Beijing, and everywhere in between. We have deployed capital into clean energy projects spanning 4 continents, focusing on development, policy and financial structuring to build a track record of success. Today, we are a well-diversified organization with a team 300+ strong, and we’ve expanded our offerings to include real estate, finance, and technology development for clean energy.
