Delivering 24/7 carbon free power is the holy grail for infrastructure funds. Such progress requires a new approach to investing. New technologies need to be harnessed: Hybridization, storage, and data science. The ESG component is also getting additional scrutiny from investors. So, how will the state-of-the-art infrastructure fund of the 2020’s look like.

We have the privilege of welcoming David Scaysbrook, co-founder and managing partner of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners. We discuss his vision and execution of infrastructure capable of delivering 24/7 carbon free power. Our conversation covers all type of renewables: wind, solar, hydro, biomass, methane recovery and battery storage. We also talk about the growing importance of digital and ESG. 

 Thank you to our new partner DLA Piper.

The challenge is having the infrastructure to do so, but also to make it make business sense to do so-- I'm happy we have leaders who are addressing these challenges today and the vibrant debates, like the ones regularly taking place on Energy Central.

Hydro is 24/7 and carbon free. The new Battery Storage is great and getting lower is cost each week. The power is all around us. Most people and companies don't use as much energy at night off peak . So solar covers the days with no problem.
