I’m passionate about the environment After working for major consultants, contractors and utilities in the environment and renewable energy sectors, I wanted to create a new business model, one that profits the triple bottom line of environmental prosperity, economic prosperity and social prosperity.
Our ambition in Wales centres on creating a sustainable, low-carbon future. As a proud Welsh man, I am passionate about Wales and the opportunity that we have to generate economic and social prosperity by nurturing investment in renewable energy. On and off-shore wind, solar, hydro, tidal and marine all provide significant opportunity to connect projects with investment; we’re here and ready to make it happen.
