Project financier Rohan Singh, a Senior Vice President of HSH Nordbank’s Energy Group, has agreed to speak on the VCJ breakfast series panel in January.
HSH Nordbank may not be a known entity to many VCs, since it keeps a low profile, but the firm put $3 billion into cleantech project finance in 2007. Singh has over 10 years of energy banking experience, during which he has been involved in originating, structuring and syndicating several transactions in the power industry, especially clean energy.
Prior to HSH Nordbank, Singh spent four years with Calyon Corporate and Investment Bank’s Project Finance group in New York. Prior to that, he worked on financing infrastructure projects in South Asia and Africa for the World Bank in Washington, D.C.
When it comes to clean power plant financing, there are few that can claim such qualifications.
He’ll be joining Ben Kortlang, head of Kleiner Perkins’ Green Growth Fund, and John Beuhler, a Managing Director at Energy Investors Fund.
