Bloomberg runs on data. Our products are fueled by powerful information. We combine data and context to paint the whole picture for our clients, around the clock – from around the world. In Data, we are responsible for delivering this data, news and analytics through innovative technology - quickly and accurately. We apply problem-solving skills to identify innovative workflow efficiencies, and we implement technology solutions to enhance our systems, products and processes.

The Team:

The Physical Assets Data Team maintains databases on renewable projects and their corresponding financing instruments and parties that cover financing deals including transactions for the development, refinancing or acquisition of clean energy assets. New investment in renewable energy reached a record in 2023 and is a crucial component of the energy transition and the achievement of net-zero targets. The asset financing data is aggregated to create BloombergNEF flagship products like the Renewable Energy Investment Tracker and Energy Transition Investment Trends as well as monthly, quarterly, and annual league table reports published by the Data team.
