After trading more than USD 1bn clean power and emissions, Laurent Segalen and his partners founded Megawatt-X in 2013.
London-based Megawatt-X has one mission: enabling the funding of the Energy Transition.
We use four different channels: Investment, Transactions, Carbon, Knowledge.
Megawatt-X helps investors maximise the value of their capital allocation in clean energy. We are good at this, because we invest our founders’ money in some of those ventures: for example, we have recently completed the sale of Zeigo a digital PPA platform in which we were seed investors to Schneider Electric, and have redeployed some of that capital in a leading German rooftop solar installer: FEBESOL.
Megawatt-X pilots and manages structured bespoke transactions between developers, asset owners and investors in Wind, Solar, Batteries and other renewables.
Since 2013, 15GW of renewable energy assets (Wind, Solar, Batteries) have been listed on our platforms.
Recent transactions include the financing of the development of MaresConnect, a new Interconnector GB-Ireland, by Foresight.
Laurent Segalen has been appointed at the Distinguished Advisory Group of the Integrity Council for the Voluntary Carbon Markets.
The Integrity Council is an independent governance body for the voluntary carbon market. Its purpose is to ensure the voluntary carbon market accelerates a just transition to 1.5⁰C.
The Integrity Council sets and enforces definitive global threshold standards named Core Carbon Principles, drawing on the best science and expertise available, so high-quality carbon credits efficiently mobilize finance towards urgent mitigation and climate resilient development.
Megawatt-X co-hosts the Redefining Energy podcast, ranked as one the top 3 Energy podcast according to Google.
Launched in 2018, the podcast has been downloaded 500,000 times and has gained multiple awards over the years.
We are better contacted through LinkedIn.
