We believe that the company is well positioned, with a strong management and operations team, to expand its current footprint through scale acquisitions and new development, including both landfill gas-to-power and RNG production projects. We are excited to add this platform to our existing portfolio of high-quality infrastructure assets and support its growth.”
Thomas Lefebvre, Partner of I Squared, remarked:
“Under I Squared’s ownership, Cube District Energyexecuted various operational initiatives that have positioned the company well for its next chapter of growth. We wish Chris Eastgate and his team every continued success and congratulate Fiera on the transaction.”
Chris Eastgate, Chief Executive Officer of Cube, said:
“I Squared’s ownership and leadership positioned Cube District Energy as a sustainable platform business in the renewable energy sector. Together with our new owners, Fiera, and a committed team at Cube District Energy, I look forward to building on this platform, continuing to grow a successful core business and leveraging off this into adjacent renewables activities.”
