Invenergy develops and operates sustainable energy generation and storage facilities, including battery storage plants that hold energy, allowing it to enter the grid as it is needed. The company generates enough power from wind farms, solar farms and natural gas plants to power over 9 million homes. Invenergy also helps local governments access and manage desalination services to ensure clean water.
Headquarters: San Jose, California
Green energy company Bloom Energy makes solid oxide fuel cell power generators, known as Bloom Energy Servers. These generators make electricity out of fuel through a complex process that uses sand wafers and proprietary ink. Because the technology works on-site without combustion, it offers “always-on primary power.” The servers can use biogas — including the pollutant methane — for fuel, taking it out of the environment while producing clean energy.
Headquarters: Baltimore, Maryland
Constellation owns and operates a group of retail energy businesses that serve clean energy to residential, commercial and public sector customers across the country. Constellation draws on hydroelectric, hydrogen, natural gas, wind and solar energy sources, and it also operates carbon-free nuclear power plants.
Headquarters: Fremont, California
Enphase is a solar power company. Using microinverter tech to convert sunlight into clean energy, Enphase sets customers up with a system to make, use and save their own energy from solar panels on their homes or properties. Its app allows customers to sell their unneeded energy on the marketplace.
