Founded in 2010, Quantum Utility Generation, LLC (“QUG”) acquires, develops, operates and optimizes power generation assets in the Americas with a sharp focus on working with both customers and partners to find economic, environmentally sound and reliable power solutions.
Our team consists of power industry veterans with decades of experience in the acquisition, development, operations, management, financing and most importantly the economic optimization of conventional and renewable energy assets.
Quantum continues to invest successfully in the power space – assets owned or in development include coal, gas, wind and solar across the Americas. Our portfolio includes nine assets totaling ~1,400 MW of operating thermal capacity and 2,100 MW of development projects through affiliates, including, among others, Navasota Energy Generation Holdings LLC and Moundsville Power, LLC.
Strong Capital Base
Quantum has a strong and sustainable capital base with substantial committed equity capital from Quantum Energy Partners (“QEP”) and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (“CPPIB”).
QEP is a Houston-based, private equity manager with more than $9.5 billion of capital under its stewardship and is focused solely in the energy space. CPPIB invests the excess funds of the Canada Pension Plan, which has investments in total over $200 billion.
We pride ourselves in having an operations-centric management team that takes an active, hands-on approach for all business activities. Our senior members spent decades working at generation facilities across the US and worldwide and have a deep understanding of plant operations, including what is required to operate power plants in an efficient, reliable and safe manner.
Our team is focused on keenly understanding market dynamics of the power space across the Americas, particularly in less transparent markets outside of the large RTO’s such as PJM and New England. Our ongoing and rigorous investment evaluation process includes detailed analysis of regulatory changes, localized generation congestion, utility resource plans, fuel fundamentals and transmission constraints.
