Financial outlook

Suncor's last big banking financing in 2007 tapped 18 banks, five of which were Canadian. On a new $3.5-billion Suncor loan package negotiated last month, TD tripled its commitment.[1]

Coal Gasification

In 2007, Suncor worked with Dow Chemical Co., Citi Sustainable Development Investments, and The AES Corp. to put together a $100 million investment for GreatPoint Energy, a coal gasification company based in Cambridge, MA.[1] The investment was used to create a pilot gasification plant called the Mayflower Clean Energy Center, located at Dominion's Brayton Point station in Somerset, Massachusetts. This was the largest "green tech" investment of 2007, and "one of the industry's biggest venture capital rounds ever."[2][3]
