Who we are

If you can flip a switch on the wall and be confident the light will turn on, or adjust your thermostat to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer, then you already understand the transformational power of our mission.

At New Fortress Energy (NASDAQ: NFE), we believe everyone, everywhere should have affordable, clean energy. Today, we’re helping customers lower costs and reduce emissions by replacing oil-based fuels with natural gas. Tomorrow, we aim to be the world’s largest provider of carbon-free power. Every day, we’re working to create a world that’s powered by positive energy.

Our company was founded in 2014 with the belief that access to affordable, reliable, cleaner energy is not a privilege, but a human right. Universal access to energy can impact everything from education to poverty reduction to gender equality. Creating that access – in an environmentally responsible way – is why we’re here. 

Billions of people still lack access to reliable, affordable energy, a critical element for quality of life and economic growth. We’re positively energized by the challenge to change that paradigm – to rapidly deliver fully integrated, completely customized, turnkey energy solutions through funding, building, and operating natural gas infrastructure and logistics. It’s a transformational opportunity to spark economic growth, enhance environmental stewardship, and dramatically improve local industries and communities – and people’s lives.

Our world-class teams – based in New York, Miami, and across the world – are pioneering energy transformation with complete solutions to the biggest energy challenges. With expertise across power, infrastructure, transportation, and LNG, we have a proven track record building and operating liquefaction facilities, onshore and offshore regasification terminals, pipelines, power plants, and small-scale solutions.

We’re a global group with diverse backgrounds, views, skills, and experiences. We strive to be creative, nimble problem-solvers and reliable partners. We’re building a fast-paced, dynamic work environment with opportunities for every employee to develop talents and skills and grow as a person and as a leader.
