Fintech arrives to streamline clean energy project finance

Renewable Energy World

Amanda Li found herself in the thick of the arduous and disorganized project finance lifecycle.

It was 2014, and she had been hired as Generate Capital's first employee. Li was responsible for all aspects of the deal: originating and underwriting, closing, portfolio management, you name it. Each stage had its own litany of documents, and required endless hours to maintain.

It was obvious to Li that the process needed a major upgrade for trillions of dollars to efficiently flow into clean energy, and our climate goals would depend on it.

Episode 52 of the Factor This! podcast features Amanda Li, the co-founder and COO of Banyan Infrastructure, a fintech company streamlining clean energy project finance by digitalizing and housing each step in a single platform.

Li shares how technology is activating fresh capital for distributed energy projects and bringing new players to the table. Just in time.
