Having spent his entire career in the renewable energy industry, James joined EnBW as Commercial Director where he brings together experience from the finance and project development worlds in the hope of drastically increasing America’s clean energy generation capacity.
James spent more than ten years in the investment banking world focusing on renewable energy M&A transactions in the U.S. and Europe. During this time, he gained invaluable experience in the renewable energy project finance world, working tax equity and debt financings, evaluating large portfolio transactions, and providing strategic advice to developers and investors. He later joined a solar development team where he helped put more than 200MW of solar capacity in the ground while gaining a much stronger understanding of the challenges of project development.
James has a B.A. in Economics from Columbia University and completed the General Course at the London School of Economics. Outside of the (home) office, James spends most of his time trying to keep up with his two young kids, and occasionally sneaking off to play tennis or squash. He also enjoys losing money at the poker table.
