Robert’s previous post was as Chief Executive Officer at Pure Leapfrog. Whilst at Pure Leapfrog he designed and launched the Pure Leapfrog Community Energy Fund which has successfully provided senior, secured debt to over 20 community energy projects across the UK.

We are currently raising capital on behalf of our community energy members to fund the long-term community ownership of a major pipeline of projects. Our goal is to be able to meet all of our members’ financing needs”.

Mongoose Energy’s plan is to accelerate the growing movement of locally owned and operated renewable energy installations across the United Kingdom.

Managing Director of Mongoose Energy, Jan-Willem Bode says: “The challenge of securing finance has always been a key issue for community groups. The addition to our team of Robert, with his experience of financing community energy projects across the country, will complement and strengthen our offering to these organisations in helping them take their projects from the ‘good idea’ stage to a working, locally owned, renewable installation”.

Robert will continue in his role as a director of Community Energy England.
