Renewables are in the midst of transforming the world’s energy landscape. How and why is this happening, and why are we, the engineers, so uniquely positioned to influence and participate in this multi trillion dollar global energy transformation.
Andreas Mustad is the co-founder of Nexwell Holdings, a company dedicated to the structuring, promotion and investment in business opportunities in the renewable sector which have a measurable impact on reducing climate change risk. Nexwell promotes these initiatives and makes these investments by guiding and partnering its portfolio companies with like-minded infrastructure investors, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs. Prior to Nexwell, Andreas founded and ran Sonnedix Global Holdings as its CEO from startup to a $4 billion global solar power generation company over a 9 year period. His successful career spans more than 20 years in the energy and industrial sectors, with experience ranging from global executive leadership positions with accountability for all aspects of running a business, including strategy, performance, development, staffing and execution, to earlier roles in M&A and turn-around management.
Andreas graduated as a structural engineer from Cornell University’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and has an MBA from IESE Business School in Spain. He is fluent in Spanish, French, English and Norwegian as well as conversant in Italian.
