I am a recognized domain expert in renewable energy finance. As the Founder and Managing Partner of Sungen Capital Management, a leading energy efficiency and solar finance advisory firm, I’ve partnered with Mazzetti to expand this suite of renewable energy solutions, BLUE Project Development Solutions, focused on decarbonization.
My thirty years of experience includes project financing and acquisitions across multiple asset classes including solar, renewable natural gas (RNG), microgrid, CHP, energy storage and energy efficiency (ESCO). Additionally, I have created and managed clean energy brokerage desks in New York and London trading environmental credits in US and EU markets, and an Environmental Registries business issuing and tracking most of Renewable Energy Credits (REC) in the US and global Carbon Credits and Offsets.
Working as a principal investor or advisor, I have a proven track record of transactions including:
- $1.5 billion in project finance – I developed the financing structure, secured funding (tax equity, debt, equity), and managed the financial closing for over 400 MW of solar, 300 MW of wind, 120 MW of battery storage, $120MM of Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) and $170 million of ESCO/Energy Efficiency projects.
- Oversight on over $1 billion of inhouse project development and M&A transactions of Energy Infrastructure and Decarbonization projects, hosted by Corporate, Municipal, Academic, and Not-for-Profit entities.
Regardless of the project scope, I take pride in helping organizations preserve capital and reduce operating expenses with the right financing strategy.
