“We’re extremely excited to be working with someone so passionate about renewable energy. People need someone that can capture their imagination, someone who can demonstrate that the phenomenal power of renewable energy doesn’t mean compromising on performance. And with Alexander in the driving seat, it’s going to be that much easier to inspire people to work towards a low-carbon future.”
