NLGC, LLC, formerly The National Landfill Gas Consortium, is an energy-related investment banking firm, founded in 1996 to provide transaction clients one-stop shopping for integrated financial advice, legal analysis or documentation, and focused engineering expertise. We have been active on transactions in excess of $2 billion in value, and in the legislative arena.

NLGC’s core business is capital formation for developers of renewable energy projects, including:

  • landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) (electricity, pipeline gas, and direct-use)
  • wind
  • ethanol
  • wood and agricultural biomass
  • POTW sludge disposal and re-use
  • refined coal, and
  • solar electricity and hot water.

We focus on capturing supplemental revenue streams (such as tax credits, S/RECs, or emission reduction credits) to provide soft funds or initial construction financing, strengthen pro formas, and facilitate permanent financing or equity acquisition. We typically have monetized these revenue streams through financial structuring and placement with institutional third parties. We also realize value for clients by placing/replacing debt or equity; arranging charitable contributions of certain environmental or energy assets; and structuring taxable or tax-exempt bond financing in lieu of conventional project financing.

NLGC has served as special financial advisor to government entities seeking to implement renewable-energy approaches such as solid-waste gasification-to-electricity, and as financial/legal advisor to independent multi-project developers, Fortune 500 companies, and funds seeking to acquire renewable energy projects.

NLGC’s assets include co-agents to extend our reach; overlapping networks of institutional sources for debt, equity, tax credit, RECs, and CO2e placement; nimble problem-solving and transaction-closing capabilities; and an unusual range of energy, environmental, securities, corporate, engineering, diligence, and documentation experience. We value our credibility with the members of these networks, which often has helped speed closings or resolve apparent roadblocks in mutually-satisfactory ways.
