As a NED at the Private Infrastructure Development Group Tania has overseen the extension of its sustainable infrastructure portfolio to utility scale and distributed/off-grid renewable energy, e-mobility, water, embedding high ESG standards into projects, ensuring that climate mitigation and adaptation considerations are taken into account in investment decisions.

At Thrive Renewables Tania has participated in decisions regarding diversification of the portfolio investing in new technologies, beyond wind, such as solar, hydro, storage and geothermal, assisting with the shift to more distributed, local energy systems.

At Guernsey Electricity Tania is helping the utility reposition itself for the energy transition, considering the right mix of technological options including interconnectors, on island renewables, grid scale storage and what role Guernsey Electricity can play in the roll out of EV charging.
