AltCrest Energy Announces Close of Seed Equity Raise and New Board
TORONTO, Feb. 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AltCrest Energy (“AltCrest”) is pleased to announce the closing of its seed equity raise and the appointment of a newly constituted Board of Directors which further enhance its ability to support the real estate industry’s transition to net-zero by developing on-site rooftop solar PV and geothermal systems.
AltCrest’s new Board includes Anthony Broccolini (CEO – Broccolini), Trevor Blakely (CEO – Forgestone Capital), Stu Wanlin (EVP – QuadReal Property Group-retired), and Ben Gilbank (Founder & CEO of AltCrest). With their combined multi-decade experience across institutional real estate development, investments, capital markets, and operations, and a shared focus on sustainability, the AltCrest team is uniquely positioned to deliver net-zero results for its real estate clients.
“AltCrest is poised to deliver on its next stage of growth. The Energy-as-a-Service (“EaaS”) model used by AltCrest is emerging as a key component of the global energy transition, with the EaaS market expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.8%, reaching $103 billion by 2028,” says Ben Gilbank. “The transition to net-zero in real estate is complicated, capital-intensive, and requires both renewable energy and real estate expertise. AltCrest is the only player in the Canadian market with the requisite offering.”
“Net-zero is quickly becoming the only standard that matters,” adds Anthony Broccolini. “AltCrest’s offering directly supports our company’s ESG objectives and the net-zero demands of the market.”
“In our view, AltCrest’s offering is aligned with this real estate cycle,” comments Trevor Blakely. “Going forward, sustainable development will increasingly emerge as a market standard.”
