SRECTrade, Inc. today announced that Alex Sheets has been named Director of Environmental Markets. Alex joins SRECTrade to expand the firm’s growing presence among institutional project developers and electricity suppliers in the solar renewable energy certificate (SREC) markets.
“Alex has been both a pioneer in environmental markets at World Energy and an expert on managing SREC portfolios for SunEdison, one of the world’s largest solar developers,” says Brad Bowery, Chief Executive Officer for the company. “He brings to our team the perfect combination of electricity supplier relationships and solar development expertise to bridge the gap between buyers and sellers in the SREC markets.”
Prior to joining SRECTrade, Alex Sheets was the SREC Portfolio Manager for SunEdison. In that role, he was responsible for managing one of the largest SREC portfolios in the nation, developing the firm’s trading strategy and executing transactions through a large network of relationships in the energy industry. Alex was also integral in the firm’s development process, advising SunEdison’s project finance team in existing markets and exploring incentive programs in new markets. At World Energy, Alex helped build the publicly traded energy firm’s Environmental Markets desk, exploring carbon and renewable energy credit opportunities throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. Alex has an Undergraduate Degree in Economics from Washington University in St. Louis and a Master’s Degree in International Trade & Investment Policy from George Washington University.
“We have always approached our work with a level of preparation and knowledge that sets us apart in the SREC market. I think that is most evident in the information we provide in our research notes, blog and newsletters. We’re excited to bring Alex on board because he expands the depth of our knowledge, particularly in structured SREC transactions. I expect that he’ll be a huge asset for our institutional clients as they assess the various options available to them in these markets,” concluded Bowery.
