About Us

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.


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.

Our fuel-agnostic approach has helped us build bottom-line returns 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 backed by USD $1 billion of private/institutional capital, with pro forma revenue of USD $1.1 billion in 2011. 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.
