Leyline Renewable Capital & Green Banks – How Do They Differ?

Green banks are public, quasi-public, or nonprofit entities that facilitate private investment into low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure.

At Leyline, our ideals align closely with those of green banks: We strive to reach clean energy goals and fund clean tech projects. We leverage capital to creatively help developers solve problems, overcome challenges, and ultimately, protect our planet. So how does Leyline differ from a green bank? Is there a competitive advantage to our approach? We think so.

Leyline had the pleasure to interview Amanda Li, Banyan Infrastructure’s chief operating officer and co-founder. Banyan provides software to enable capital flow to infrastructure projects, minimizing the manual and time-consuming processes that typically exist between developer, borrower, and lender.

Read our conversation about why she started the company, and how the company’s unique technology helps investors and lenders streamline origination and servicing for distributed infrastructure projects. 

Case Study: Renewable Natural Gas

Since its founding, Leyline has provided capital to 14 renewable natural gas (RNG) projects with more than $23 million invested. By investing in RNG projects, Leyline partners with developers in the fight against climate change by displacing methane and generating clean energy. Check out our RNG case study to learn about our partnerships with Dynamic, CleanBay Renewables, and Evensol to develop three successful RNG projects.
