About

Pattern Development is a leading U.S.-based renewable energy developer, with a pipeline of 10,000 MW of projects around the world. We develop wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects which are typically, although not always, bought, owned and operated by our affiliate Pattern Energy. While Pattern Energy and Pattern Development are structurally separate, both companies share the same leadership — longtime industry experts — and are aligned in mission, vision, and values.

From a global headquarters in San Francisco to an operations control center in Houston, we work on projects that range from the earliest stages of development to the repowering of older facilities. Our team has a wealth of experience in identifying potential sites, engaging with communities, and expertly navigating the processes of permitting, environmental mitigation, meteorological assessment, risk management, and finance to build great projects. Using the industry’s most advanced technologies, we provide our customers with renewable energy that is affordable and reliable.

We have earned our position as an industry leader by combining creativity, focus and a scientific approach to discover patterns that unlock important opportunities. As a result, our company history shows consistent, groundbreaking work.

Our portfolio is full of industry firsts. Our team was the first to successfully develop a utility-scale wind energy project:

  • on Native American lands in the United States
  • on the Gulf Coast of Texas
  • in the State of Nevada
  • in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico

We are also currently pioneering transmission projects to deliver wind energy to the Southeastern United States.

The transformational partnership structure innovated by our finance team has become the dominant model used in the wind and solar energy sectors over the last decade.

All of these accomplishments have been possible because of the way that we get the job done at every stage of the development process.

By re-examining established practices, we discover new ways to approach our projects. We discern patterns through a systematic and scientific approach, but we count on our practical know-how and industry experience to convert them into projects that perform. When we find profitable patterns, we repeat them. This cycle of discovery, deduction and development is a pattern we’ll keep repeating.
