Unlocking Scalable Business Models for Clean Energy Technologies

Create: clean energy for our communities

NineDot Energy is a leading community-scale, clean energy storage developer with a growing portfolio of urban projects across a range of technologies. We create innovative energy solutions that support a more resilient electric grid, deliver economic savings, and reduce carbon emissions. Our current focus is on the New York City area which is moving fast in deploying urban clean energy solutions.

Founded in 2015, backed by Carlyle, and based at the NYU Urban Future Lab in Brooklyn, we’re committed to providing clean energy solutions to the New York area and beyond. And that’s just the beginning.

Build: 400 megawatts by 2026

We plan to develop, build, and operate more than 400 megawatts (MW) of clean energy systems by 2026 that will strengthen the local power grid infrastructure and provide clean, reliable, and resilient power to tens of thousands of New York households and businesses. This is all in support of New York State’s mission to achieve 100% clean energy by 2040.

NineDot has a pipeline of battery storage system projects across downstate New York including in Queens, Staten Island, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Long Island that serve Consolidated Edison and PSEG Long Island customers. More

Innovate: out-of-the-box solutions

NineDot’s name derives from the classic mathematical puzzle for sparking out-of-the-box solutions. 

At NineDot, we partner with leading clean-tech equipment providers and financial investors to design complex yet elegant projects. We build business models that are scalable, bankable, and fast to implement. And each of our projects delivers real-world benefits to the environment, energy infrastructure, and end users.



We tune our research and development to increase the accessibility and affordability of clean energy to residents and businesses in dense, urban locations through no-money down, no-downside-risk subscription contracts.



Community-scale distributed energy projects are our sweet spot. They are small enough to provide hyper-local power grid benefits that maximize reliability and resiliency, and large enough to gain economies of scale.


Quantifying and parsing financial risks can unlock significant new sources of capital for more clean energy development. We are experts at this.


Soft costs are the non-hardware costs to build an energy project. They have an outsized role in project economics. We use science and tech innovation to reduce soft costs.


Retail power prices are set by intricate regulations layered upon a complex mix of regional and global market dynamics which create a complicated puzzle for developers – we solve this puzzle.


Clean-tech reduces global greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollutants. We deliver cleaner air to the planet and provide a healthier environment for our neighbors.
