CBRE launches Renewable Energy Valuation & Advisory Service within UK business

Global real estate advisor, CBRE, has today announced the appointment of Ross Cooper to lead a new specialist business area within its UK Valuation and advisory business, focused on renewable energy and infrastructure.

Ross has joined from Equitix, where he was a Director in the Investments team, responsible for the origination, execution and on-going management of infrastructure and renewable energy assets in the UK and Europe. He was instrumental in establishing Equitix’s Bio Capital platform, which launched in 2018 to aggregate anaerobic digestion plants, and developed a joint venture to identify and acquire small-scale onshore wind turbines from individual asset owners and developers.

With over 20 years of experience in the sector, Ross has extensive knowledge of renewable energy and infrastructure and a wealth of experience working across multiple disciplines including secured lending, equity investing, financial advisory and asset management. Prior to Equitix, he was an Associate Director in the Infrastructure and Renewables team within NIBC bank in London.

In his new role, Ross will be responsible for establishing a specialist renewable energy business line within CBRE’s extensive UK Valuation team, creating a greater presence for CBRE in the renewable energy and infrastructure sectors.

This is a really exciting time for CBRE’s Valuation business, and we are delighted to have Ross on board to help drive our expansion into these new sectors of the market. We are constantly looking for ways to provide clients with a competitive advantage and having Ross integrated within our team will enable us to further embed ESG at the forefront of all of our Valuation advice and diversify the range of services we offer and sectors we operate in.
