Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I have a keen interest in decarbonisation. In recent times, this has started to mean more than just building a renewable power plant and now encompasses an ever-increasing range of transformational products, such as virtual power plants, microgrids, e-mobility projects, and the innovative funding structures required to advance these projects. I look forward to working with clients and stakeholders as this fast-changing sector continues to develop.
