Energy & Resources Deal Toys

In the galleries beginning on this page, you’ll find over 300 images of deal toys and financial tombstones from the energy and resources space. The transactions they commemorate reflect a range of technologies and commodities, including solar and wind power, electricity, geothermal and recovered energy generation (REG), oil and natural gas, as well as base and precious metals.

The deals represented in these tombstones also involve some of the most recognizable international brands in these sectors. They include Williams, Schlumberger, Iberdrola, ENGIE, NextEra, KEPCO, Tesla, Canadian Solar, and Caltex.

But you’ll also encounter here a number of deal toys marking less familiar transactions and involving lower-profile names. These include a private placement by a Norwegian manufacturer of sustainable battery cells; the acquisition of photovoltaic solar farms in Poland; an entitlement offer by an Australian mineral sands exploration company; funding for a hydropower project in Cameroon; a joint venture centered on a U.S.-based network of electric vehicle charging stations; and a “green” bond issued by a Swiss canton.

Beyond these pieces, you’ll also notice a number of awards and employee recognition designs unrelated to any financial transaction. These include, for example, team awards recognizing the disaster recovery efforts of utility employees, commemoratives honoring participation in renewable energy efforts, and custom groundbreaking and opening commemoratives for solar energy plants and facilities.
