Our mission is to accelerate deployment of sustainable solutions worldwide.
Galway Sustainable Capital (GSC) is a specialty finance company investing in businesses that hold the promise of a better future for all. We invest in companies, projects and assets that promote environmental and social resilience through locally-based solutions, ultimately building platforms that use resources more efficiently.
Bringing a solutions-oriented approach to our investments, we share with our partners an enthusiasm for accelerating energy transition and environmental sustainability as well as working toward economic inclusion and shared opportunity.
Our investments save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase resilience and expand opportunity.
Sustainable solutions are right-sized and localized.
We work with experienced development partners and thoughtful business leaders to match the size of our investment to the scale of demand – from small equipment installations to larger greenfield projects, to providing socially responsible finance. Across our investments we seek alignment of interests and shared outcomes. We partner with teams who are leading a pathway of transition.
Key investment themes are distributed and renewable power, energy efficiency and green buildings, waste-to-product, sustainable agriculture, land and water usage and strategies to reduce, eliminate or sequester carbon dioxide. In addition, we invest in socially responsible credit products that help expand opportunity and equity.
We approach each partnership with deep passion and creativity and a desire to unearth the best and brightest ideas to see that they reach their full potential
We invest with purpose – favoring smart projects that create economic resilience.
In 2020 we launched our investment in 10 acres of advanced indoor farming in West Virginia. Indoor farming helps preserve land quality, reduce air pollution from fertilizers, reduce water usage and reduce transportation cost and emissions. It also provides year-round healthy food and creates jobs for the local economy.
We helped move this California based food production company into a new state-of-the-art facility in 2020. The facility is powered by green energy and uses low gwp natural refrigerant throughout its cold chain adding even more green credentials to the company’s already locally sourced, sustainably grown food.
We invested in a Virginia-based company that accelerates energy transition by providing developer friendly financing for mid to late stage community and C&I solar projects. Led by power industry veterans, the company operates by aligning solar investor interests with developers’ needs to bring new projects online.
We financed the acquisition of energy management systems (EMS) that are designed to control heating and cooling to maximize energy efficiency through energy savings agreements (ESAs). These were installed in five national brand timeshare properties in Florida.
We provided bridge financing to this EV company as it was preparing for its IPO. The electric vehicle sector is seeing strong growth, improving technology, regulatory support, and increased consumer adoption. This Colorado based company produces electric fleet medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, including delivery trucks, shuttle buses, passenger vans, chassis-cab models, and city transit buses.
We invested in a North Carolina-based company that originates and develops solar and energy storage projects for utility customers. The company has 2 gigawatts of solar and storage projects under development.
We invested in a 9 megawatt (MW) modular data center campus situated on 5.4 acres in Pittsburgh, PA. This facility will provide co-location and HPC services which address the growing need for right-sized private data center space. The compartmentalized, efficient space configurations inherent to modular data centers, combined with state-of-the-art cooling greatly reduces the power usage efficiency (PUE) of the data center.
We invested in a pool of Income Sharing Agreements (ISAs) with students enrolled in coding school to obtain technical skills to work in the information economy. The students only pay for their program once employed and earning above a certain threshold. This agreement eliminates the risk of students being saddled with high payment obligations and no salary and incentivizes the school to equip their students with the training necessary to attain middle and high-income jobs.
This Colorado-based company is a leading 3rd party Carbon Capture & Sequestration (CCS) super developer. They provide industry leading expertise, project development experience, and economically viable solutions for hard to decarbonize industries to reduce their carbon footprint. In order to achieve our net zero carbon targets by 2050, we need to not only deploy as many green solutions as we can but also to clean up through carbon capture & sequestration hard to decarbonize industries such as fuel and industrial productions.
We invested in a Texas based company that provides 24/7 monitoring of residential HVAC systems. Their service enables optimization of system performance and long-term relationships with vested HVAC maintenance companies. This reduces long term maintenance, waste & pollution as well as improves efficiency, performance, and comfort. HVAC is the single biggest energy load in homes and refrigerant (HFC) leaks are 1000x worse for warming than CO2 and early detection of leakage can go a long way in solving those solutions.
