GreenFire Energy makes appointment to advisory board
Published by Sarah Smith,
GreenFire Energy Inc. has announced the appointment of Marc Stuart, founding managing partner, Allotrope Partners, to its Advisory Board.
Allotrope Partners is an internationally focused clean energy advisory firm with expertise in project development, public-private initiatives, renewable energy credits and strategic investment in clean energy projects. The firm has deep expertise in Southeast Asia and is engaged in renewable energy deployment in the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, and Vietnam. Allotrope Partners jointly leads the Clean Energy Investment Accelerator (CEIA) which is a public-private initiative to advance the policy and financing framework to scale commercial and industrial clean energy deployment in Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico and Colombia.
Marc is a recognised leader in emissions credit trading, cleantech investing and climate policy. He was the co-founder of EcoSecurities and led the teams that created emissions reduction credits, emissions and project finance transactional capacity, and the first green certificate transaction for developing and industrial countries. Marc has been a member of numerous boards in the environmental markets space, including Verra (the Verified Carbon Standard), Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics, the International Emissions Trading Association and served for several years as a private sector observer to the World Bank’s Clean Technology Fund. He is an author and frequent speaker on emissions trading, low carbon finance and cleantech.
There is interest in GreenFire Energy’s technology for commercial projects across the globe. Marc’s experience will help the company to assess and prioritise opportunities and navigate geothermal energy’s expanding role in the global energy transition, particularly in Southeast Asia where both GreenFire Energy and Allotrope are active.
“GreenFire Energy appears to have a unique opportunity as a carbon-free baseload energy technology overall that is very well suited to many markets, and to Southeast Asia’s existing and potential geothermal footprint in particular. With new carbon and Renewable Portfolio Standard markets emerging both locally and globally, the kind of nextgen geothermal technology that GreenFire Energy represents is an exciting development to help achieve net zero goals,” said Marc Stuart, founding managing partner, Allotrope Partners.
“I’ve known Marc for a number of years and know that Marc brings unparalleled experience and insight to the cleantech and environmental credit trading world. We’re just delighted to have him formally on board,” said Joseph Scherer, President and Chief Executive Officer of GreenFire Energy.
