Bioenergy Infrastructure Group appoints Head of Corporate Finance to Power up Growth Plans
07 February 2022: Bioenergy Infrastructure Group (“BIG”), an independent power producer specialising in energy-from-waste and waste wood, has announced the appointment of Tylor Hartwell as Head of Corporate Finance. Tylor will be responsible for delivering the next phase of growth for BIG, which will place environmental, social, and governance considerations at its heart.
BIG currently has one of the UK’s largest portfolios of energy-from-waste and waste wood facilities and has invested in over 20 projects across the UK to date. The portfolio includes Energy Works Hull, a 24MW facility in Hull, East Yorkshire and Ince Bio Power, a 21MW facility in Ince, Cheshire.
BIG has interest in over 100MW of operational assets, diverting over 1 million tonnes of waste from landfill, to generate enough electricity to power around 250,000 homes in the UK each year.
The appointment comes as the company looks to capitalise on the growth of the energy-from-waste sector, in particular using its extensive experience in the conversion of waste and waste wood to syngas via gasification, to become a leading low carbon energy producer. Last year, Ince Bio Power received Government funding to develop plans for a Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) project.
Tylor joins from National Australia Bank, where he led the Corporate Finance team.
Tylor Hartwell, Head of Corporate Finance Bioenergy Infrastructure Group, said: “I am thrilled to be joining BIG at what is an important time for the energy- from-waste sector. I look forward to ensuring BIG can support a meaningful reduction in UK carbon emissions and lead the exploration for UK carbon capture. BIG is ideally-placed to benefit from the rapidly growing biomass and energy-from-waste sector and I look forward to making that happen.”
Simon Hicks, CEO of Bioenergy Infrastructure Group commented: “I am delighted to welcome Tylor as Head of Corporate Finance. He joins at an exciting time for our company as we look to shift into our next stage of growth and increase our focus on net zero energy. His experience in corporate finance and infrastructure will be a particular asset to our growth plans and the energy-from-waste sector as a whole.”
