CWP Renewables (CWPR) is pleased to announce Grant King has joined the CWPR board as Chair, as the company positions itself to benefit from further renewables expansion.
The appointment follows the successful investment into CWPR by Partners Group (on behalf of its clients) in December 2020.
CWP Renewables CEO Jason Willoughby said: “We are thrilled to have Grant King lead the CWPR board and be able to leverage his deep industry knowledge and experience in building platform-scale energy businesses, acquired over his 20 years at Origin Energy.
“In the short term, we will be focused on financing and building a further 400 MW at our Uungula project in addition to 30MW of battery storage at our Sapphire Wind Farm. Grant's appointment will assist the CWPR team in unlocking our next growth phase."
Incoming Chair of CWPR, Grant King commented: “I am delighted to be joining CWP Renewables and working with the management team and Partners Group to further expand the platform and be more innovative around their product offering.
“CWPR is now well positioned to be a market leader in the provision of reliable, reasonably priced, low emissions electricity solutions."
CWP Renewables is one of Australia's largest independent power producers, with around 650 MW of operating or late-stage construction wind farms located in NSW.
It is currently accelerating the development of its 3.5 GW pipeline of wind and storage projects in New South Wales (NSW), contributing towards the 12 GW renewable energy target announced by the NSW Government and helping Australia transition to a lower emission economy.
