I spent the first part of my career as a Eurobond trader at Nomura Securities and KBC. In 2000 I set up the energy desk at the London office of Chicago futures trading company GHCO LLP. In 2006 I joined E.On UK as head of UK power and carbon trading. We moved the trading business to Düsseldorf in 2008, where I became head of carbon trading for E.On Energy Trading SE. On my return to London I set up Owen-Lloyd Futures to help companies manage their carbon exposure, and renewable energy producers to sell their power output.
I am now working on the remarkable Botley West Solar Farm which, if given planning consent, will supply 840MW of renewable electricity to the National Grid. I am responsible for the Grid connection and power output, as well for communicating our proposals clearly, alongside our retained advisers Counter Context.
My love of good coffee led me to set up London Grade Coffee, importing and roasting coffee beans from Tamil Nadu, south India.
I have an MA in Modern History from Christ Church, Oxford.
