Headwater Capital Consulting

Renewable Energy

Headwater Capital Consulting assists First Nations with negotiations and all business aspects of renewable energy projects. Our edge lies in a thorough understanding of the economics of a project. This understanding allows us to maximize benefits for First Nations while allowing sufficient returns to warrant investment from equity holders. We frequently negotiate equity options for First Nations and assist with sourcing capital to exercise these options.
