juwi, a global renewable company founded in 1996 and has since delivered over 4.4GW of solar and wind projects worldwide with a total investment volume of >$10billion. juwi entered the Australian business in 2014 with the acquisition of Qi power focusing on a niche hybrid/offgrid segment resulting in successfully executing the world’s largest solar diesel battery hybrid reference project Sandfire Degrussa in Western Australia.
As part of the strategic initiative to expand project development activities beyond the offgrid/hybrid segment into utility scale PV projects, the juwi board has decided to strengthen the project development expertise in the management team.
The leadership position will be taken over by Cameron Garnsworthy, who brings with him a wealth of experience in the Australian Solar and Wind development space. In this latest role, he was the Managing Director of a market leading player in Australia and successfully closed 250 MW of solar PV projects. He has also served as a non-executive director at the Clean Energy Council providing guidance and input on wide ranging issues affecting the development of the clean energy industry in Australia. Prior to that, Cameron was heading the Renewables arm of Energy Australia – a leading electricity generator and retailer in the Australian market. Cameron also has prior experience on the buy side with juwi and was involved in various transactions in Germany for the purchase of wind farm projects that were built by juwi.
I am looking forward to working together with Cameron and juwi Australia team to drive our development efforts forward and establish the company as a seasoned renewable energy player within the Australian market in the coming years
says Stephan Hansen, COO of juwi Group.
