Project development and financing
Tight capital budgets, access to private equity, and an ever-expanding regulatory environment can make it difficult to get essential projects off the ground. Leveraging our dedicated Bechtel Enterprises team, our customers can get access to development capital, planning and permitting, and financing services to help bring projects from concept to completion.
We are helping accelerate technologies and funding solutions to grow the world’s sustainability footprint, including nationwide EV charging facilities, master planning with a relentless focus on early economic and social gains, using proven techniques from our energy and power markets to decarbonize existing assets, improve renewables constructability, and recycle carbon emissions.
An example of how early engagement can help realize a project is the Stonewall Energy Center. Here, a local real estate developer’s idea for a secure data center backed by a reliable power source resulted in the state-of-the-art combined cycle power plant. Our team provided development capital and permitting, as well as securing a long-term equity partner to help the project expedite financial close.
