Sam, partner at renewable energy consulting firm STANCE, gives his take on what lenders look for in renewable investments, including how the market and lenders’ priorities have changed in the past 15 years.
Since 2003 Sam has worked as an independent insurance consultant. While working at Traxler & Tong he started their renewable energy consulting division and in 2018 he formed STANCE with business partner Anthony Retort, to help fuel the growth of the renewables industry.
In ten years’ time, he’d like to see continued growth in renewable energy, composed of several different technologies, including battery storage, biomass, biofuels, carbon capture, green hydrogen and geothermal. He hopes decommissioned power plants can be repurposed for renewable energy use, to reduce carbon emissions and fulfil global electricity demand.
