Powering the future

Origins and organic growth

Pattern began in 2009 as a renewable energy development startup, offering a compelling risk-reward tradeoff based on our capital access and management expertise. The business grew quickly. As our early projects began operations, we concluded that launching a publicly-listed company to own and operate our generation facilities was the best way to pursue our mission of transitioning the world to renewable energy.

Pattern Energy held its initial public offering (IPO) in 2013 and acquired its first batch of operating assets from Pattern Development, which remained privately held. Following the IPO, the collaboration between the two companies helped Pattern Energy nearly triple in size by 2019.

Pattern Energy Group completed a restructuring in 2020 to combine its operating and development businesses under one umbrella. The Pattern Energy Group Inc. operating assets and the Pattern Energy Group 2 LP development platform are now owned by Pattern Energy Group LP (“Pattern Energy”), a joint venture among the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments™), private equity funds managed by Riverstone Holdings LLC, and certain members of Pattern Energy management. 

The 2020 restructuring provides Pattern Energy with the benefits of vertically integrating the development, construction, operating, and asset management businesses, better enabling the company to succeed in its mission of transitioning the world to renewable energy.
