AD funder joins industry advisory board

CEO of Renewable energy funder, Privilege Finance, has joined a new advisory board that is focussed on tackling the issues that matter the most.

Speaking on his new appointment, Phil explains that he hopes his new position will enable him to bring Privilege’s ‘can-do attitude’ to the wider industry. “With government hesitation over tariff support, there has been some negativity over the future of the sector.

“However, with the right support from industry bodies, investors and technology providers, there is a real opportunity to make AD commercially viable and I hope that by joining the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) Advisory Board, I can help to make this happen.

Phil acknowledges, that an integrated approach to tackling future hurdles is needed, and the new board facilitates this. “We need to use our creativity and passion to find new solutions and develop opportunities, whether in new technology or in the drive for better standards.

“It’s vital that as an industry we continue to attract investment, and the only way we can do this is by striving for the highest standards of technology and operation. As the funding representative on the board, I have a unique opportunity to bring the views of investors to the table.”

Speaking about the development of the advisory board, ADBA chief executive Charlotte Morton said, “The ADBA Advisory Board is a crucial mechanism for ensuring that ADBA’s work is informed by the very best expertise from across the AD industry.

“We’re delighted to have Phil join the board as a representative of the AD finance sector and look forward to working with him and the rest of the board to support the growth of the UK AD industry.”
