About CPV



An Energy Company for North America's Future

Competitive Power Ventures, Inc. (CPV) is a leading North American electric power generation development and asset management company headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, with offices in Braintree, Massachusetts, and San Francisco, California.

CPV’s corporate mission is built around the belief that progressive companies can be powerful leaders in creating a better world and a cleaner environment. To attain these goals, CPV brings financial strength, an unrivaled network of energy professionals and outstanding management experience to every project.

CPV concentrates on a clean energy strategy utilizing natural gas and wind-powered generation to meet growing demand across North America. Our highly-experienced team works closely with states and utilities to replace less efficient, older, more polluting resources with modern clean technology.

CPV’s Power Development Group (CPV PDG) adheres to a focused strategy of creating significant new natural gas electric generation facilities across strategic markets, informed by operational expertise and with a focus on community values. With 4,000 megawatts (MW) of natural gas generating facilities currently in development, 2,250 MW under construction and 725 MW in operation across North America, CPV is an industry leader.

The company’s Asset Management Group (CPV AMG) has operated more than 10,000 MWs across the continent since 2001 and currently has more than 4,800 MW of CPV and 3rd Party generation facilities under management. As one of the early leaders in this field and with extensive experience across all generation facilities, CPV AMG has risen to be the premier electric generation asset management company in North America.

CPV’s Renewable Energy Company (CPV REC) also plays a significant role within the company. Beginning in 2005, the wind division created a portfolio of more than 3,500 MW of projects which were subsequently sold in 2007. CPV REC has remained active in wind development since that time, having developed and sold an additional seven wind projects totaling over 1000 MWs of new wind power projects across North America. With an extensive background in development and the 150 MW Keenan II wind project currently in operation, CPV has a proven track record in the renewables business.

At CPV, we have a vision for a balanced energy future and the resources to get there.
