Christian Grütte


Christian is an independent financial advisor with some 18 years’ experience in the power & renewable sector.
He started out his career in a leading North European Strategy Consultancy, where he made substantial contributions to build the energy practice within the firm. He developed and implemented innovative distributions concepts for utility clients to face the competitive challenges of the newly liberalized German electricity market.

In 2002, anticipating the tectonic shifts to arrive in the energy sector by renewables, Christian decided to set-up
his own advisory boutique to serve exclusively the renewable energy sector. In the following years, Christian,
supported world leading Utilities, IPPs and Private Equity Investors, such as Iberdrola, AES, RWE, OMV, Englefield
Capital and Hudson Clean Energy Partners to thoroughly assess international market opportunities and
successfully assemble project portfolios across mature and emerging European renewable markets. Based on
this work his clients were able to realize their investment strategy via the acquisition of local partners, greenfield
and operating wind, solar, biomass, geothermal or hydro projects with pipelines of many thousands MW
capacity.

Christian became a recommended speaker at leading international energy conferences on topics of market
attractiveness and investment drivers for renewables. He formed part of the Working Group ‘Financing the
Energy Turnaround’ in Frankfurt and was one of the first members of the European Technology Platform for

Since ten years, Christian, focuses on the particular challenges of power projects in emerging markets, such as
Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Georgia, New Zealand, Taiwan, South Korea, Mexico, South Africa or Pakistan. He flags
risks to international investors coming from regulatory environment, grid connection and competitors. Developers are supported to raise equity, mitigates risks via the creation of international project consortia and achieve project finance bankability with domestic and international lenders.
