OWN YOUR PIECE OF THE GREEN ENERGY ASSETS THAT POWER OUR WORLD

Civeq makes investing in clean energy infrastructure accessible to everyone.

Our
Vision

We are on a mission to change the relationship people have with the things that power our world. How?

We’re opening the door to opportunities previously only available to large corporations, accredited and institutional investors, and a limited number of community solar projects—by making clean energy investment accessible to everyday individuals, households, communities, and small & medium enterprises. Civeq leverages cutting-edge technology including blockchain to securely and digitally manage equity in assets such as solar PV arrays. This transparent and verified connection to real-world assets in real time translates into ‘Visible Equity.’

Visible Equity is your connection …to clean energy. ...to climate-friendly infrastructure. …to your investment in the low-carbon economy.

The Problem We Are Solving

In today’s market, asset-owning company structures (e.g., special purpose vehicles (SPVs)) sit between clean energy assets and investors. The problems are clear:

01

Lack of Liquidity: Shares in legal entities are practically impossible to trade, and investors are unable to monetise them over short periods of time.

02

Lack of Transparency: SPVs make it unnecessarily hard to access and monetise a clean energy asset’s attributes, such as solar energy generation or avoided carbon emissions. Investors have no visibility into actual, verified impacts.

03

Cost and Complexity: Value is lost through costs of due diligence and deal structuring. Current markets and PPAs fail to deliver the full value of attributes.

Our
SOLUTION

Visible Equity

Visible Equity gives you direct ownership of a known piece of a known clean energy asset, in a known location, delivering visible performance and returns, and a real positive impact on the climate. The benefits are clear:

01

Project Developers: For any clean energy asset, from solar to EV infrastructure, get more-efficient access to a liquid community of investors to build faster.

02

Investors: Enjoy total visibility and confidence in where your money is going, greater returns and full value for all attributes, and the ability to trade, cash in, and cash out... no matter how big or small.

03

Society and Business: Greater participation and visibility of the impact you are having, through your investment in clean energy assets, in terms of climate, energy, and carbon reduction.

01

Fractionalised clean energy assets
Assets are fractionalised using blockchain technology into Visible Equity inside the platform, giving direct ownership of attributes (like energy and carbon) and sold in affordably priced 'lots.’

02

A visual connection
Users are able to view and interact with their holding. The UI/UX displays the visible growth of energy, avoided carbon, and financial value as the asset operates. This is a new relationship with the things that power our world.

03

Value that can be traded
Users can see the value of their holding grow in value. That value can be traded.
