Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy supports natural resource sustainability with an ethical and fair approach to business that creates win/win opportunities for all stakeholders.


Climate change, population growth and an increased awareness of the global environment have triggered a shift from traditional carbon based sources of power, heat and transportation fuels, to innovative and sustainable solutions. HREG is a leader in identifying, developing and investing in these environmentally conscious energy solutions.


Our equity capital acquires green and brown field projects that convert waste and bio-energy feedstock to energy. We focus on conversion assets and the related infrastructure, e.g., port storage handling facilities and rail transportation. We also look to repower coal fired power stations with renewable energy sources. HREG invests in green energy and creates jobs with strategic platform partners in North and South America, the European Union and Australasia.

HREG also considers renewable investments in solar, wave, wind, tidal, geothermal and hydro:


tonnes of CO2 emissions per year could be prevented by solar technologies by 2050


TWH/year of energy can supply 93,850 US homes


invested in wind power globally


of Europe’s tidal energy potential resources come from Scotland


GW of operating capacity as of January 2015, across 24 countries


of electricity generated in the U.S.


HREG made its first investment in biomass to pellets and port infrastructure
