SunFunder chosen as Bloomberg 2017 New Energy Pioneer
We are delighted to announce that SunFunder has been selected as one of Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s 10 New Energy Pioneers for 2017.
Receiving the award at BNEF’s Future of Energy Summit in New York today, SunFunder CEO Ryan Levinson commented:
“We are grateful for the recognition of what we have been doing to provide scalable financing for the beyond-grid solar sector. This comes at an inflection point for us and the industry, as we are offering high-value lending solutions to our customers and larger fixed income opportunities for institutional investors.”
SunFunder has financed more beyond grid solar companies than any other institution, and will this year offer investors $80 million of new diversified fixed income opportunities in the sector.
Bloomberg describes the winners, chosen from over 170 applicants, as “game-changing innovators that are revolutionizing the energy sector”. A panel of industry experts judged the winners on three key criteria: potential scale, innovation and momentum.
