“We’re thrilled that Jeff has joined our leadership team anchored by the same passion to decarbonize global infrastructure,” said Nexus PMG CEO Ben Hubbard. “Nexus PMG has entered an unprecedented era of growth providing investors, corporates and developers with low-carbon infrastructure development and advisory services, and we’re thrilled to expand our North American footprint with Jeff alongside.”
The energy generated from much of North America’s new clean energy infrastructure has a frequent buyer: corporates. Over the next decade, corporate investments in low-carbon energy are only anticipated to rise further, reaching hundreds of billions of dollars. But this effort to replace large-scale, aging fossil-fuel facilities and procure renewable energy and fuels in their place brings enormous challenges – and corporates, innovators and operators alike must seek new ways to advance emerging sectors that, to date, have proven to be hard to scale.
Looking to dedicate his time to sectors that reduce carbon intensity, Jeff joined Nexus PMG to bring his wealth of experience to emerging infrastructure markets. With a background in leading business development and commercial activities for global companies across energy; sustainable infrastructure; and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), Jeff is supporting Nexus PMG’s clients active in the energy transition and sustainable infrastructure markets.
“Moving forward, the excitement is going to be in the acceleration across all energy transition and sustainable sectors,” said Jeff Barker. “We are seeing new ideas and clean technologies entering the market, and more importantly, widespread financial and industry commitment to advancing them. I’m thrilled to be part of a company solely dedicated to finding creative solutions to meet the needs of the market.”
As Nexus’ new Director of Business Development, Jeff will provide Nexus’ clients with tangible experience leading development in emerging markets, including carbon capture and storage (CCS), sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) and waste-to-value (W2V). With a client base maintaining a portfolio of more than $300 billion of energy transition assets under management, Nexus PMG is actively expanding our services across North America to help corporates achieve their renewable energy goals.
