Benji Cohen started T-REX after spending time in the Energy Markets Division at Macquarie Bank and structuring infrastructure deals across the public and private sectors. Since 2012 the company has grown to more than 15 team members with offices in New York City and Tel Aviv, and has launched partnerships with some of the world’s leading investment banking institutions.
T-REX Analytics is a finance technology company that specializes in cloud-based tools for analyzing and investing in renewable energy assets. T-REX connects institutional investors with renewable energy assets in order to facilitate growth in the clean energy sector. Rather than developing, sending around, and comparing dozens of Excel models, T-REX’s customers can use one platform and test different finance scenarios in one place. This provides transparency into the risks and returns of investing in renewable energy assets such as solar. The software provides a complete end-to‐end solution for structuring financial transactions for a portfolio of renewable assets, including granular modeling of solar projects and solar-backed loans, stressing of power production performance and credit-based assumptions, tranche structuring for portfolios of assets, and calculating total return analysis and deal profitability. T-REX’s tool also supports ongoing portfolio management for renewable energy assets.
Now let’s talk deployment.
For their Elemental Excelerator Demonstration project, T-REX showcased how its secure, centralized SaaS platform enhances efficiency in securitization. The company successfully demonstrated this end-to-end solution on a couple of portfolios of securitized solar loans, including one in Hawaii. Using T-REX, project owners, banks, and rating agencies were able to collaborate more effectively, and investors across the U.S. and Asia Pacific were able to evaluate risks and come up with intelligent investment decisions, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars of new capital flowing into these solar markets.
