The belief of Wes Edens in the need for renewable, clean sources of energy led to the development of the New Fortress Energy brand dedicated to bringing power to developing economies. One of the main reasons for the success of the brand has been the ability of New Fortress Energy to provide its own funding for various projects around the world as it is backed by the funds available to Fortress Investments. Wes Edens established Fortress Investments after a long and successful career as a broker on Wall Street and currently has more than $70 billion in assets backing its work.
New Fortress Energy is one of a number of projects undertaken by Wes Edens which provide a glimpse into a future for the planet which is more ecologically friendly. One of the leading issues for the majority of entrepreneurs in the 21st-century is the desire for projects designed to protect the planet from the perils of climate change. The owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks franchise has headed the development of the first U.S.-based passenger rail service to operate since 1983. Brightline rail services have started in the state of Florida and will continue in many different areas of the country, including Texas and the Southeast. The successful first line operating from Orlando to Miami is the first step in reducing the reliance of the U.S. public on the road and airline industries.
