Exciting times in the energy sector.

Our more than 100-year-old energy system is changing with the speed of light.

Addressing German delegation led by German President Christian Wulff together with Dr. Sultan Al Jaber

New paradigms replace old ones

Technology and financial innovations conquer the market place and unexpected players appear alongside traditional energy companies. Private investors are driving decentralization in developed and developing markets alike and smart renewable energy systems offer practical and affordable solutions for the energy poor in rural areas of the developing world.

Renewable energy systems are cornerstones in the decarbonization of our economies and are indispensable in our fight against climate chaos.

Behind this momentum of transformational change are people. Visionary politicians that implement policies to advance a sustainable energy agenda, professors that drive innovations through research and development, ordinary people that install a solar panel on their house, venture capitalists that invest in the renewable energy space, bankers that lend to sustainable energy projects and businesses and business leaders that steer their companies towards a profitable sustainable energy future.

My Role

I built my first wind pump in Africa in 1990 and experienced first hand the impact sustainable energy can have on people’s lives. Twenty years on my passion for the business led me to take a lead role in the development of the London Array offshore wind farm, at 630 MW the largest wind farm in the world.

I have built and managed factories in Europe and Asia, sold solar systems, managed investment funds, and developed, financed and built several billion dollars worth of renewable energy projects all over the world. As Deputy Director-General at IRENA, the youngest and fastest growing intergovernmental organization, I have been in charge of a 350 million dollar fund investing in projects in developing countries.

I have vision, passion, drive and the commercial sense to inspire both colleagues and shareholders to continue to make sustainable energy the way forward.

I am an author, and a regular speaker at international events and conferences.

Board Positions

I have extensive experience as executive and non-executive board member across the world.
My industry knowledge, global experience and network provides depth to corporate decision making and adds value to the firms I work with. I have a broad view across markets, technologies, finance, and policy and have worked with start-ups and large corporations alike.
As a non-executive board member of Gore Street Capital, an FCA authorized firm in the UK, I have been an ‘approved person’ since 2015.
