What We Do

Hannon Armstrong focuses on solutions that reduce carbon emissions and increase resilience to climate change by providing capital to the leading companies in the energy efficiency, renewable energy and other sustainable infrastructure markets. Our goal is to generate attractive returns for our shareholders by owning a diversified portfolio of investments that generate long-term, recurring and predictable cash flows from proven commercial technologies.

Our investments, which typically benefit from contractually committed high credit quality obligors, have taken a number of forms including equity, joint ventures, land ownership, lending or other financing transactions. We also generate ongoing fees through gain-on-sale securitization transactions, services and asset management.
