Chris Warren has over twenty-five years of experience in the financial industry. Along the way he has acquired a unique set of skills and experiences through roles that include managing assets for high net worth investors, leading a major division of a Fortune 500 company, and building three successful businesses from inception. Driven by his passion for the environment and the well-being of our planet, Chris founded a company in 2006 that became an industry leader in energy efficiency and renewable energy development. During that time he identified a major hurdle that was suppressing the development of renewable energy projects, funding. Chris and his team found a way to solve that problem by aggregating smaller projects to attract the attention of institutional investors. To date they have facilitated the development of over US $850 million in renewable energy assets. In late 2013, Chris led the spin-off of Clean Energy Advisors from its parent company in preparation for creating investment opportunities that provide a larger number of investors access to the tax efficient cash flows generated by renewable energy projects.
Chris has achieved technical proficiency in all aspects of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects. He completed his undergraduate studies at Duke University and his technical training includes a Certification in Renewable Energy Management from North Carolina State University and training in Basic and Advanced Solar PV Design from Solar Energy International.
His many interests include live music, traveling with his wife, and watching his daughter compete in equestrian competitions. His greatest desire is to make a difference in the lives of his clients by delivering solid returns in investments that make the world a better place. Chris is an inspiring leader with a compassion for the Earth and the future of our planet.
