U.S. energy asset management company Fortistar, claims it avoided 2.125 million tons of GHG emissions in 2016. The company builds, owns and operates natural gas cogeneration facilities, landfill gas to energy and biomass electric generating plants and CNG fueling stations throughout the United States and Canada.
“For nearly 30 years, Fortistar has been focused on the transition to lower carbon energy sources. We believe strongly that sustainable energy generation done right makes financial sense—for private companies, municipalities and for federal agencies,” said Mark Comora, President, Fortistar.
“In the private sector, we’ve helped CEOs, CFOs and Chief Sustainability Officers understand that there are cleaner, healthier and cheaper alternatives to gas or diesel to fuel their fleets. With government agencies and municipalities, we’ve created a path for them to turn trash into an asset—clean renewable energy. We believe that this is the right thing to do and have proven that it benefits the bottom line of our customers.”
Fortistar companies include TruStar Energy (member of NGVAmerica) which has built or managed 100+ compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in states across the United States, including Florida, Texas, Oklahoma and California.
