Ep133: Clean Energy and Rural America's Economic Rebound

December 07, 2020 | By Todd Alexander

Reid Spolek, energy lead at Google, Chris Hansen, vice president of origination and renewables at TVA, Spencer Sessions, senior manager of economic development at TVA and Johan Vanhee, chief commercial officer and chief procurement officer at Origis Energy, join us to discuss the role of clean energy in rural America’s economic rebound. We discuss how the organizations are involved with solar and energy storage in rural American communities, how the projects affect low-revenue-base communities, the challenges and lessons learned from the recently announced Skyhawk project, a 100-MW solar installation in Tennessee, how large corporate energy buyers like Google are viewed and much more.  


Currents Podcast features in-depth discussions on the latest developments in project finance. The podcast is hosted by partner Todd Alexander, who interviews key business leaders and policy makers to investigate important trends affecting the energy and infrastructure space.
