About this company
ContourGlobal® develops, acquires and operates electric-power and district-heating resources around the world, many in underserved, overlooked markets. We are able to move quickly on niche opportunities, with a broad expertise in the full range of traditional and alternative electricity-generation technologies. The company was founded in 2005 by current CEO Joseph Brandt, along with Reservoir Capital Group, a $4 billion USD New York-based investment fund. In its short 6-year history, CG has grown through greenfield and brownfield development and acquisitions and has become an important player in the energy markets. Today, ContourGlobal® is uniquely positioned to continue its expansion through various ongoing growth projects.
We base our portfolio investments on what makes sense for the client and location. That could mean using methane extracted from a Rwandan lake to fuel electricity-producing gas engines, or combining existing technologies to develop a “quad-generation” solution that provides four types of generation—power, heating, cooling and a source of CO2—for a multinational beverage bottler. We operate a portfolio with multiple fuels as well as renewable energy in two distinct lines of business: Developing and operating large, central-station generating plants to supply national grids in high-growth markets; Partnering with multinational companies to boost production-facility efficiency—and improve environmental profiles—in mature markets.
ContourGlobal® is a multinational company with more than $4 billion of assets and more than $1 billion of revenue. Despite these established-business figures, however, we remain true to our entrepreneurial roots, with leaders who understand the need to act quickly when new opportunities emerge.
Because we invest our own financial and personnel resources in every project, we are committed to both fiscal transparency and worker safety. We have deep expertise in the laws, regulations and tariff structures in every location in which we operate. We have zero tolerance for corruption or unsafe working conditions.
