Envisioning A Clean Energy Future


About Progression Energy

Progression Energy develops, finances, constructs and operates renewable energy projects. Our mission is to generate energy that is clean as well as reasonably and stably priced. We operate with in-depth market experience and access to proprietary technology that uniquely positions us to create great returns for our investors and for our planet.

Progression Energy was founded in 2014 by Chris Swartley, one of the early members of First Wind’s executive team, to pursue development of offshore wind projects in the U.S. Progression Energy’s leadership team is comprised of former First Wind developers, consultants and industry partners with more than 150 years of combined experience developing energy projects around the world. Progression has secured strategic funding partnerships that enable project development financially and technically.

Progression strategy is built upon choosing markets that have:

  • Economic and political support for renewable energy.
  • Macro-factors that drive support for renewable energy.
  • A community that deeply values culture and relationships. Progression Energy’s team puts a high priority on intensive and early stakeholder engagement, believing that renewable energy projects will be most successful in the long run through solid stakeholder relationships.


To collaborate with communities worldwide for a clean future.


We work with people and place – host communities and local systems – to design and deliver clean energy solutions that meet local and global energy challenges.
