The Green Light

What is it like to be on the legal and development side of cleantech? In this episode, Catherine speaks with Becky Diffen, a Norton Rose Fulbright Partner and former project developer to get an idea of what it’s like to oversee gigawatt size solar portfolios.

Becky reflects on the challenges and trends she has faced over the years with projects, some notable deals include 7X’s 9 GW portfolio of solar purchased by bp, as well as the offshore joint venture between National Grid & RWE.

We also speak about what the future holds for Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy, the value of mentorship, and inclusive initiatives that have helped lift both business and individuals.
