Rob Raymond, the founder of RCH Energy (Raymond Crow Holdings – established in 2004), says the oil and gas market has left the exploration phase and entered the exploitation phase of the shale revolution, which will be dominated by major energy corporations, not private equity firms. That said, he is bullish on investing in businesses that facilitate the further exploitation of the Permian Basin, a play that he believes is a big deal – so big, in fact, that the Permian should be thought of as its own country, one that will beat Mexico, Canada, Venezuela and even Saudi Arabia.

How Corporates are Going Green: The Rise of Renewable Power-Purchase Agreements

Podcast cover
Read more

Far from witnessing “doom and gloom” around climate change, two leaders in renewable energy at KPMG are working with corporations around the world to transfer from “brown energy” to green. The shift is starting with Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPAs) whereby massive consumers of energy contract with renewable suppliers for direct access to green energy. Not only are these agreements carbon-free, they are less expensive than business as usual. The interview also includes commentary on the challenges of structuring CPPAs, the institutional investors eager to finance them, and the broader corporate movement toward a carbon-neutral world.
