Highly experienced renewable and conventional energy executive with 15 years of major project development, management and operations experience. I have extensive experience negotiating power purchase contracts, fuel supply contracts and other key power project documents, as well as project financing and related documentation.
I was directly responsible for the start-up and development of one of the largest biomass-energy power plants in North America. This was a $300 million endeavor I started from scratch with two partners, with my role being president and CEO. In my role I assembled key team members, negotiated and procured financing, negotiated and procured a $3 billion PPA contract, addressed environmental impacts and permits and ultimately brought to fruition and profitably sold.
Prior to this I owned and operated a natural gas fired power plant and related assets. I have also worked on projects combining traditional power generation assets with utility-scale solar assets, as well as combined heat and power and energy efficiency projects.
