Amidst the complex debate of how to sustainably supply energy to the world there remains two simple truths regarding our energy future; the world will continue to require more energy and the energy that is required must have much less environmental impact. Additionally, there is also a common misconception that our energy choices are mutually exclusive or binary, choosing between lower carbon renewable energy sources or more carbon intensive traditional energy sources such as hydrocarbons. These two simple truths, and the equally important misconception around our energy choices, are the driving force behind Ming Energy Partners.
Today’s global reality is that the world is awash in energy, even if not always economically or equitably distributed across all nations and all people. We have moved so quickly from a perception of energy scarcity to a reality of energy abundance that the rapid change has presented us with challenges we never envisioned just a few short years ago. In this era of abundance all energy is not created equal and the rising societal mandate of environmental sustainability has become a generational movement.
We believe in a better way forward through deep candid collaboration yielding continuous improvement between traditional energies and new energy solutions. Rather than limit options or influence from only one side of the energy dialogue, we have chosen to lead from the middle where real projects and progress can be realized. Ming Energy Partners was formed to champion a pragmatic and effective energy evolution that both satisfies capital markets and leaves the generations to follow with better energy options.
Through advising, partnering, and investing Ming Energy Partners seeks to lead the deployment of capital to develop a new class of net-zero energy projects which includes traditional hydrocarbon fuels, as well as emerging lower carbon energy sources. With deep domain and experience evaluating energy as system, the experts at Ming Energy Partners have decades of expertise in identifying, developing, and implementing solutions that generate both returns and equity across the energy spectrum. Through solutions such as the ones outlined below, Ming Energy Partners can demonstrate practical and profitable pathways to meet these dual challenges.
• Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage
• Decarbonization Strategies
• Operational Emissions Abatement
• Hybrid Renewable & Hydrocarbon Power Generation/Storage
• Industrial Energy Efficiency
• Advanced Analytics & Smart Systems
• Process Electrification
Finding innovative ways to decarbonize and reduce other environmental impacts from all energy sources will continue to grow in importance as the world further adopts net zero energy standards. As investors, society, and policy makers shift their focus towards these common goals, Ming Energy Partners stands ready to provide you with the effective support for tangible action in advancing our energy evolution.

The energy market is undergoing rapid and transformative change. A plethora of factors is driving a level of disruption not seen since the advent of cars, internal combustion engines and electricity more than a hundred years ago. Energy scarcity has given way to energy abundance. Digitalization, new technologies and platforms all combine to present more choices to energy consumers.
