CME Energy has successfully been a key player in development of electric power projects on four continents. By combining a community-oriented approach and environmental sensitivity with technical and financial acumen, CME Energy generates solutions that benefit both localities and partners.
List of Projects
CME Energy, in conjunction with Hecate Energy, developed the 3.7 MW Forbes Street Solar Project on a closed landfill in East Providence, Rhode Island. Completed in June 2014, the solar plant currently delivers clean electricity to thousands of people in Rhode Island, through energy sales to National Grid under a 15-year power purchase agreement. The developers, CME and Hecate recently signed a 20 year PPA with National Grid to expand the project with an additional 4.07 MW also at the East Providence landfill.
“CME partnered with Pure Energy to form the development company, North America Project Development, LLC to build the Oregon Clean Energy Center, an 869 MW natural gas-fired electric power plant in Oregon, Ohio. The project construction began in November 2014 and began commercial operations in June 2017. The project is capable of producing up to 961 MW.
CME Energy, in conjunction with Hecate Energy, is in the early stages of construction of the 4.07 MW Forbes Street Solar Project II on a closed landfill in East Providence, Rhode Island. Power purchase agreement has been signed for 20 years with National Grid. The sight is being prepared for installation of the solar panels and is scheduled to begin commercial operation in March 2018.
CME Energy is a 50 percent owner alongside longtime colleague William Siderewicz of Clean Energy Future – Oregon, a 955 MW gas-fired combined-cycle electric generating facility in Oregon, Ohio. The Clean Energy Future Oregon project is in the permitting process and commercial operation is anticipated to begin in 2020. Fluor Corporation is constructing the project and will begin construction in early 2018. The dual generators will provide electricity to 1.8 million homes.
In 2001, CME Energy developed the Fremont Energy Center with Calpine Energy in Fremont, Ohio. This 707 MW combined cycle, natural gas power plant is now owned and operated by American Municipal Power, producing cost effective, clean energy for their memberships.
CME Energy led the development of the El Biban power project in Zarzis, Tunisia with partners Caterpillar Power Ventures International and Centurion Energy. The 27 MW cogeneration electric power plant was the first independent power project and the first carbon capture power plant in Africa.
CME Energy advised U.S.-based asset manager Scudder, Stevens and Clark on three successful investments in Latin America, including the development of the region’s first independent power project.
CME Energy and Cornerstone Power Development, a joint development partner, conducted a study of a solar application on the Rhode Island Convention Center in 2010.
CME Energy worked with its subcontractor, RW Beck, to evaluate the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s cogeneration facility’s technical and operational issues and to correct interface problems with Cambridge Electric. CME Energy and RW Beck were able to successfully resolve all technical, operational and interface difficulties.
