Company History

Many nations in Latin America and the Caribbean require significant improvements in energy infrastructure to support their rapidly growing economies. Fueled primarily by oil-based and imported fuels, these regions and economies benefit from savings brought by the application of locally applied, modern generation technology and renewable power generation.

Founded in 2014, BMR Energy brings the combined expertise of 10,000 MW of energy infrastructure projects, local insight and access to reliable capital backed by Virgin Investments, to the development, acquisition, finance, construction and operations of energy infrastructure throughout the Caribbean and Central America.
