We will continue to aggressively pursue the purchase of industrial assets of any size and in any condition. For distressed assets, we will continue to provide the transfer of environmental liabilities with robust indemnifications and guarantees found nowhere else in the market.

If you have an industrial asset or environmental liability you would like considered by ELT, our acquisitions team is set up remotely and fully prepared to engage today. Please contact us for a confidential and no-cost value proposition.

Redevelopment of industrial real estate, coal-fired power plants
by Kerry Smith, Area Development Magazine
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), coal plants with a combined total of more than 15,100 megawatts ceased operating nationwide last year — enough to power 15 million homes, and second only to the number of megawatts retired during 2015. The reasons behind these closures are many: decreasing wholesale prices, competition from comparatively cheap and plentiful alternate energy sources such as natural gas, subsidized solar and wind energy, continued compliance with federal energy regulations, and public concern over coal’s effect on climate change.

"CDC is actively targeting industrial real estate, including power plants, for purchase and redevelopment, said  John Kowalik . CDC has purchased seven retired coal-fired power plants since 2014, representing more than 3,700 megawatts of retired generation capacity. “And as energy markets continue to embrace more efficient and renewable technologies, we expect significantly more acquisitions over the next few years,” Kowalik said.

Once a power plant closes, beyond the job losses and tax revenue losses, the environmental impact from historic plant operations still needs to be resolved. That’s where CDC steps in. “Without a buyer willing to take the risk, old shuttered power plants could remain in a perpetual state of decay and deterioration,” he explains. “That’s not a good scenario for the utility or the surrounding community.”

Seeking Industrial Real Estate Assets and/or Environmental Liabilities
ELT has successfully assumed nearly $2 billion USD in corporate environmental liabilities for clients - and has never defaulted on an obligation or given a site back to the seller/PRP. Additionally, over 90% of ELT’s assumed liabilities have achieved final environmental milestones or are in the last stages of regulatory closure. This experience is critical when choosing a partner for environmental liability management.
