Invenergy, LLC develops, builds, owns and operates power generation and energy storage projects in North America and Europe. Its portfolio includes wind, solar, and natural gas-fueled power generation and energy storage facilities. It is one of the six largest owners of wind generation plants in the United States and is North America's largest independent wind power generation company.[1]

According to Invenergy, the company has developed 10,071 MW of wind farms in operation; 5,519 MW of natural gas-fueled facilities in operation; 231 MW of solar projects in operation; and 94 MW of energy storage facilities in operation. At least 3,982 MW of renewable and clean energy projects are under contract or in construction. Wind production is spread over 77 operating projects, with several others currently in development and construction.[2]

Founded in 2001 after the sale of SkyGen Energy to Calpine Corporation by energy veteran Michael Polsky who also serves as president and CEO, Invenergy is based in Chicago, Illinois.[3] Invenergy also has North American offices in Denver, Toronto, and Mexico City. European activity is centered in Warsaw.[4] The company also has an office in Tokyo.

In January 2013, Quebec's public pension fund manager, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, invested $500 million in the company's portfolio of operating wind farms.[5]

A now bankrupt,[6] yieldco of SunEdison, named TerraForm Power agreed to acquire wind assets in 2015.

In July 2017, Invenergy, in partnership with GE Renewable Energy, announced plans to construct the largest wind farm in the United States.[7]
