On February 1, 2021 Pacific Green Technologies Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our”, the “Company”) appointed Peter Rossbach to become an Independent Non-Executive Director of our Company.
Peter Rossbach —Independent Non-Executive Director
Peter van Egmond Rossbach has worked in the renewable power sector since 1985 when he started at Standard & Poor’s rating utility bonds financing renewable projects in California.
In the late 1980s he worked with Catalyst Energy, a developer of hydro and cogeneration projects that was later sold to the Boone Pickens family. In the early 1990’s, Peter was a vice president of project finance for the Mitsui Bank, arranging loans for wind and cogeneration projects in the United States.
Since the mid-1990s, Peter worked in Europe and Asia making investments in hydro, wind and solar projects in over a dozen counties. Over this time frame he created renewable energy asset portfolios of over 1GW, first for a fund in Asia based in Singapore and then since 2003 for Impax Asset Management in Europe. While at Impax in London he assembled a team of industry-oriented specialists with expertise in project construction, operation, finance and asset management.
Currently Peter serves as Senior Advisor and on the investment committee for Impax’s private equity funds #1-3 and is a non-executive board member with UGE International Ltd, a TSX-listed renewables developer in the USA. Peter has a degree in Government from Harvard College and a Masters’ degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
Our company believes that Mr. Rossbach’s professional background and experience give him the qualifications and skills necessary to serve as a director of the Company. Except as disclosed herein, there have been no transactions between the Company and Mr. Rossbach since our last fiscal year which would be required to be reported herein. There are no family or similar relationships among Mr. Rossbach and any of our officers, directors, or affiliates.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
