Rive Private Investment announces the recruitment of Kevin Sara as a partner. He comes to strengthen the investment team and bring his 30+ years of experience in energy transition infrastructures.
After spending the first part of his career as an investment banker (UBS – M&A, Salomon Brothers – TMT banker, and Nomura — Technology Principal Investments), Kevin co-founded one of the first cleantech asset managers in London in 2007. As a pioneering “clean-tech” investor, he made investments in fuel cells, solar generation technologies, wind and marine turbines, electric vehicles, and new battery technologies. He then founded solar developer Nur Energie which has developed solar generation projects in France, Italy, Greece, and Tunisia, including the large-scale 4.5 GW solar export project TuNur. Kevin is deeply concerned with the energy transition and has written extensively on emerging topics such as the electrification of transportation, energy storage and the production of synthetic fuels.
