Exus Management Partners(Exus), a leading expert in powering sustainable investments through operational excellence - with 9GW under management globally- today announced Co-Founder, Luis Adao da Fonseca, has been named one of the most influential individuals in the European windsector.

 Mr.da Fonseca has over 20 years’ experience within renewables. Prior toco-founding Exus he held several senior positions at EDP Renewables - the third largest global wind developer - as a member of the Executive Committee, CFO and Chief Business Development Officer. Previously, Luis worked at McKinsey &Co., where he is currently Senior External Advisor for Renewable Energies.

 Founded in 2014, Exus provides investment and full asset management services for operational, development and under construction renewable assets globally. In his work with Exus to date Luis has participated in the acquisition of 5GW of wind and solar assets across Europe.

 Alongside those on the European Power List, Luis has played a pivotal role in ensuring the renewables market emerges strongly amidst current challenges.

 In February, WindEurope published annual figures stating that just 17GW of wind capacity was installed in Europe in 2021, 11GW of which were in European Union member states. That represents just one third of the 30GW needed in the EU per year to hit its target of 40% renewables in the electricity mix by 2030.

 Luis Adao da Fonseca, Co-Founder & Partner Exus, said: “I am delighted to have even been considered for the 2022 edition of A Word About Wind’s Top 100 European Power List, let alone make the top 100 alongside other notable professionals.

 “Over the past few months we have seen institutional interest in wind assets significantly increase, reflecting the accelerating energy transition across the continent.

 “As demand increases, so too does the pressure on owners and operators to squeeze additional value from a limited pool of assets. Through our work at Exus, we are incredibly excited about what lies ahead for the European wind industry.”

 Richard Heap, Editor-In-Chief, A Word About Wind, said: “There can be no doubt that the European wind industry faces some major challenges. However, the world still needs to make a transition towards renewable energy sources. That will need a rethink by countries across Europe about how they can support developments such as wind farms, solar farms and storage – and, more than that, it will require strong leadership from those who can take advantage of the available opportunities. These are the leaders we celebrate in the European Power List report – both our top 100 list of influential people in wind and our top 30 list of stars in wind-and-storage.”
